I run my elixir app in a docker container. For debugging maintenance I connect with docker, start a bash and start iex there. But it happens that the helpers like completing a command with tab or using the history does not work. I don’t have this issue with my rails project and and the rails console.
Would be cool if that could be solved, maybe just a setting.

just do make sure you:
I have tried to set the TERM variable but without any success. Any Idea?
Note: I am using the official Last Elixir Image.
What is it doing wrong for you precisely? What happens when you hit <tab>?
Do remember that if you are on Windows then you need to use iex backed by werl, not erl (it will pop up a new white window in other words).
