Jupyter-like docstring view in Atom.io
This question has to do with getting Jupyter Notebook docstring functionality to work in Atom. I appreciate any and all advisement.
In the Jupyter Notebook you are able to access the docstring via shift-tab and expand and scroll through the docstring as well as select and copy-paste from it into the cells.
In the Atom Editor running the IPykernel I can see part of the docstring via autocomplete-python package, but I am unable to scroll through the docstring's full length, nor am I able to select from it for copy-pasting.
I cannot find a hotkey to make Atom open a browsable and selectable docstring as in Jupyter Notebook. Anybody have any ideas?
My keycap.cson file contains the following:
'atom-text-editor': 'enter': 'editor:newline' 'shift-tab': 'language-python: toggle-all-docstrings'
But this does nothing....
I added the bounty but I actually managed to figure out the answer.
1) Download a package called hydrogen from the packages in atom. 2) Go to your .py file in atom and hold ctrl-shift-p. A search bar will pop up 3) type hydrogen: toggle inspector and a window will pop at the bottom 4) go to the variable where you want to view the strings and simply press alt-i. That is the equivalent of tab in the Jupiter notebook
