Replying to aleksey_s:

What issues we currently have?

  • We need code which can find the best completion given a list of possible completions. This should be done in pythonConsole.PythonConsole._findBestCompletion(). Examples:
    • Given an original string of "a" and a completion list of ["ab", "abc"]("a",), the best completion should be "a".
    • Given an original string of "a" and a completion list of ["abd"]("abc",), the best completion should be "ab".
  • Pressing tab twice should provide a list of all completions, perhaps using a context menu.

In the Python Console, you can now press the tab key to complete the current identifier.

Fixes #433.
