Enabling Iex tab-completion in Windows


How does Iex tab-completion work in Linux?

How can we emulate same or similar in Windows without WERL.exe ?

Where can we start looking?

I doubt if this is a VM related issue.

If linux simply provides modules required for this feature that are missing on windows, then I believe we have a direction for a solution.

Your thoughts?


You can get auto completion in windows by passing

when opening iex.

iex --werl -S mix

or in powershell
iex.bat --werl -S mix

you can set this as your default option by setting your environment veriable
