NAME

       bpython-config - user configuration file for bpython

SYNOPSIS

       $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/bpython/config

DESCRIPTION

       The configuration file contains various options controlling the behaviour of bpython.

GENERAL

       This refers to the [general] section in your $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/bpython/config file.

   auto_display_list
       Display  the autocomplete list as you type (default: True).  When this is off, you can hit
       tab to see the suggestions.

   autocomplete_mode
       There are three modes for autocomplete. simple,  substring,  and  fuzzy.   Simple  matches
       methods  with  a  common  prefix, substring matches methods with a common subsequence, and
       fuzzy matches methods with common characters (default: simple).

       New in version 0.12.

   syntax
       Syntax highlighting as you type (default: True).

   arg_spec
       Display the arg spec (list of arguments) for callables, when possible (default: True).

   hist_file
       History file (default: ~/.pythonhist).

   paste_time
       The time between lines before pastemode is activated in seconds (default: 0.02).

   hist_length
       Number of lines to store in history (set to 0 to disable) (default: 100)

   tab_length
       Soft tab size (default 4, see pep-8)

   pastebin_url
       The pastebin url to post to (without a trailing slash). This pastebin has to be a pastebin
       which     uses     LodgeIt.     Examples     are:    http://paste.pocoo.org/xmlrpc/    and
       http://bpaste.net/xmlrpc/ (default: http://bpaste.net/xmlrpc/)

   pastebin_private
       If the pastebin supports a private option to make a random paste  id,  use  it.   Default:
       True).

       New in version 0.12.

   pastebin_show_url
       The  url under which the new paste can be reached. $paste_id will be replaced by the ID of
       the     new     paste.     Examples     are:     http://bpaste.net/show/$paste_id/     and
       http://paste.pocoo.org/show/$paste_id/ (default: http://bpaste.net/show/$paste_id/)

   pastebin_helper
       The  name  of a helper executable that should perform pastebin upload on bpython's behalf.
       If set, this overrides pastebin_url. It also overrides pastebin_show_url, as the helper is
       expected  to return the full URL to the pastebin as the first word of its output. The data
       is supplied to the helper via STDIN.

       An example helper program is pastebinit, available for most systems. The following  helper
       program can be used to create gists:

          #!/usr/bin/env python

          import sys
          import urllib2
          import json

          def do_gist_json(s):
              """ Use json to post to github. """
              gist_public = False
              gist_url = 'https://api.github.com/gists'

              data = {'description': None,
                      'public': None,
                      'files' : {
                          'sample': { 'content': None }
                      }}
              data['description'] = 'Gist from BPython'
              data['public'] = gist_public
              data['files']['sample']['content'] = s

              req = urllib2.Request(gist_url, json.dumps(data), {'Content-Type': 'application/json'})
              try:
                  res = urllib2.urlopen(req)
              except HTTPError, e:
                  return e

              try:
                  json_res = json.loads(res.read())
                  return json_res['html_url']
              except HTTPError, e:
                  return e

          if __name__ == "__main__":
            s = sys.stdin.read()
            print do_gist_json(s)

       New in version 0.12.

   color_scheme
       See themes for more information.

       Color schemes should be put in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/bpython/

       e.g to use the theme $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/bpython/foo.theme set color_scheme = foo

       If    you    set    the    colorscheme    to    foo    this    will   be   translated   to
       $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/bpython/foo.theme so be sure to put the file in that directory.

       Leave blank or set to "default" to use the default (builtin) theme.

   flush_output
       Whether to flush all output to stdout on exit (default: True).

KEYBOARD

       This section refers to the [keyboard] section in your $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/bpython/config.

       You can set various keyboard shortcuts to be used by bpython. However, we have yet to  map
       all  keys  to  their respective control codes. If you configure a key combination which is
       not yet supported by bpython it will raise an exception telling you the key does not exist
       in bpython.keys.

       Valid keys are:

       · Control + any alphanumeric character (C-a through A-z, also a few others).
