.. _bash_completion:
Setting up bash completion
When using bash as your shell, ``pytest`` can use argcomplete
( for auto-completion.
For this ``argcomplete`` needs to be installed **and** enabled.
Install argcomplete using::
sudo pip install 'argcomplete>=0.5.7'
For global activation of all argcomplete enabled python applications run::
sudo activate-global-python-argcomplete
For permanent (but not global) ``pytest`` activation, use::
register-python-argcomplete py.test >> ~/.bashrc
For one-time activation of argcomplete for ``pytest`` only, use::
eval "$(register-python-argcomplete py.test)"
