Wingpro still has this problem: Unexpected auto-completer behavior when working with aiida.


I installed wingpro and test it with the bug reported here. It seems the bug still exists there. The following is the code used for revealing this problem:

from aiida.orm import calcfunction

When running, wing will fireup the folloiwng error:

File "/home/werner/", line 1, in <module>
  from aiida.orm import calcfunction

builtins.ImportError: cannot import name 'calcfunction' from 'aiida.orm' (/home/werner/Public/hpc/tools/aiidateam/aiida-core.git/aiida/orm/

But as you can see, the calcfunction will still be an auto-complete candidate entry given by wing.

Any hints for this problem?

Regards, HY

This ended up being a huge can of worms and the fix is instead pushed into Wing 8 because we felt these changes needed to go through a longer testing process. The first alpha of that should be out later today. Sorry for the long delays on this; it was more complex than we thought.

It will be announced to the wingide-users list when it's out. It probably will be out today (I suspect you are in a different timezone than we are) but there's always a possibility it will be delayed.
