Changelogs » Prompt-toolkit




New features:
- Improved support for "dumb" terminals.
- Added support for new keys (vt100 ANSI sequences): Alt +
- Better performance for the "regular languages compiler". Generate fewer and
better regular expressions. This should improve the start-up time for
applications using this feature.
- Better detection of default color depth.
- Improved the progress bar:
* Set "time left" to 0 when done or stopped.
* Added `ProgressBarCounter.stopped`.
- Accept callables for `scroll_offset`, `min_brightness` and `max_brightness`.
- Added `always_prefer_tty` parameters to `create_input()` and `create_output()`.
- Create a new event loop in `` if `get_event_loop()` raises

- Correct cancellation of flush timers for input. (Fixes resource leak where
too many useless coroutines were created.)
- Improved the Win32 input event loop. This fixes a bug where the
prompt_toolkit application is stopped by something other than user input. (In
that case, the application would hang, waiting for input.) This also fixes a
`RuntimeError` in the progress bar code.
- Fixed `line-number.current` style. (was `current-line-number`.)
- Handle situation where stdout is no longer a tty (fix bug in `get_size`).
- Fix parsing of true color in ANSI strings.
- Ignore `invalidate()` if the application is not running.



- Bugfix in the UI invalidation. Fixes an issue when the application runs again
on another event loop.



New features:
- Added `new_eventloop_with_inputhook` function.
- Set exception handler from within `Application.run_async`.
- Applied Black code style.

- No longer expect a working event loop in the `History` classes.
(Fix for special situations when a `ThreadedHistory` is created before the
event loop has been set up.)
- Accept an empty prompt continuation.
- A few fixes to the `Buffer` tempfile code.



New features:
- (almost) 100% type annotated.
- Native asyncio instead of custom event loops.
- Added shift-based text selection (use shift+arrows to start selecting text).

Breaking changes:
- Python 2 support has been dropped. Minimal Python version is now 3.6,
although 3.7 is preferred (because of ContextVars).
- Native asyncio, so some async code becomes slightly different.
- The active `Application` became a contextvar. Which means that it should be
propagated correctly to the code that requires it. However, random other
threads or coroutines won't be able to know what the current application is.
- The dialog shortcuts API changed. All dialog functions now return an
`Application`. You still have to call either `run()` or `run_async` on the
`Application` object.
- The way inputhooks work is changed.
- `patch_stdout` now requires an `Application` as input.



Bug fixes:
- Fixed `Application.run_system_command` on Windows.
- Fixed bug in ANSI text formatting: correctly handle 256/true color sequences.
- Fixed bug in WordCompleter. Provide completions when there's a space before
the cursor.



Bug fixes:
- Fixes the issue where changes made to the buffer in the accept handler were
not reflected in the history.
- Fix in the application invalidate handler. This prevents a significat slow
down in some applications after some time (especially if there is a refresh
- Make `print_container` utility work if the input is not a pty.

New features:
- Underline non breaking spaces instead of rendering as '&'.
- Added mouse support for radio list.
- Support completion styles for `READLINE_LIKE` display method.
- Accept formatted text in the display text of completions.
- Added a `FuzzyCompleter` and `FuzzyWordCompleter`.
- Improved error handling in Application (avoid displaying a meaningless
AssertionError in many cases).



Bug fixes:
- Fixed assertion in PromptSession: the style_transformation check was wrong.
- Removed 'default' attribute in PromptSession. Only ask for it in the
`prompt()` method. This fixes the issue that passing `default` once, will
store it for all consequent calls in the `PromptSession`.
- Ensure that `__pt_formatted_text__` always returns a `FormattedText`
instance. This fixes an issue with `print_formatted_text`.

New features:
- Improved handling of situations where stdin or stdout are not a terminal.
(Print warning instead of failing with an assertion.)
- Added `print_container` utility.
- Sound bell when attempting to edit read-only buffer.
- Handle page-down and page-up keys in RadioList.
- Accept any `` for HSplit/VSplit children (instead of
lists only).
- Improved Vi key bindings: return to navigation mode when Insert is pressed.



Bug fixes:
- Don't use the predefined ANSI colors for colors that are defined as RGB.
(Terminals can assign different color schemes for ansi colors, and we don't
want use any of those for colors that are defined like aabbcc for instance.)
- Fix in handling of CPRs when patch_stdout is used.

Backwards incompatible changes:
- Change to the `Buffer` class. Reset the buffer unless the `accept_handler`
returns `True` (which means: "keep_text"). This doesn't affect applications
that use `PromptSession`.

New features:
- Added `AdjustBrightnessStyleTransformation`. This is a simple style
transformation that improves the rendering on terminals with light or dark
- Improved performance (string width caching and line height calculation).
- Improved `TextArea`:
* Exposed `focus_on_click`.
* Added attributes: `auto_suggest`, `complete_while_typing`, `history`,
`get_line_prefix`, `input_processors`.
* Made attributes writable: `lexer`, `completer`, `complete_while_typing`,
`accept_handler`, `read_only`, `wrap_lines`.



New features:
- Added dictionary completer (off by default).
- Added fuzzy completion (off by default).
- Highlight keywords in completion dropdown menu.
- Enable universal wheels.

- Fixed embedding repl as asyncio coroutine.
- Fixed patching stdout in embedded repl.
- Fixed ResourceWarning in



- Fixed ptipython.
- Fixed config: setting of color depth.
- Fixed auto-suggest key bindings.
- Fixed Control-D key binding for exiting REPL when (confirm_exit=False).
- Correctly focus/unfocus sidebar.
- Fixed open_in_editor and suspend key bindings.



- Allow changing the min/max brightness.
- Some changes for compatibility with the latest prompt_toolkit.



- Don't crash the history browser when there was no history.
- Set last exception in the sys module, when an exception was raised.
- Require prompt_toolkit 2.0.5.



Upgrade to prompt_toolkit 2.0.x.


includes the merge of the CommandLineInterface and the Application object, a
rewrite of how user controls are focused, a rewrite of how event loops work
and the removal of the buffers dictionary. This introduces many backwards
incompatible changes, but the result is a very nice and powerful architecture.

Most architectural changes effect full screen applications. For applications
that use `prompt_toolkit.shortcuts` for simple prompts, there are fewer


- No automatic translation from \r into \n during the input processing. These
are two different keys that can be handled independently. This is a big
backward-incompatibility, because the `Enter` key is `ControlM`, not
`ControlJ`. So, now that we stopped translating \r into \n, it could be that
custom key bindings for `Enter` don't work anymore. Make sure to bind
`Keys.Enter` instead of `Keys.ControlJ` for handling the `Enter` key.

- The `CommandLineInterface` and the `Application` classes are merged. First,
`CommandLineInterface` contained all the I/O objects (like the input, output
and event loop), while the `Application` contained everything else. There was
no practical reason to keep this separation. (`CommandLineInterface` was
mostly a proxy to `Application`.)

A consequence is that almost all code which used to receive a
`CommandLineInterface`, will now use an `Application`. Usually, where we
had an attribute `cli`, we'll now have an attribute `app`.

Secondly, the `Application` object is no longer passed around. The `get_app`
function can be used at any time to acquire the active application.

(For backwards-compatibility, we have aliases to the old names, whenever

- prompt_toolkit no longer depends on Pygments, but it can still use Pygments
for its color schemes and lexers. In many places we used Pygments "Tokens",
this has been replaced by the concept of class names, somewhat similar to

* `PygmentsStyle` and `PygmentsLexer` adaptors are available for
plugging in Pygments styles and lexers.

* Wherever we had a list of `(Token, text)` tuples, we now have lists of
`(style_string, text)` tuples. The style string can contain both inline
styling as well as refer to a class from the style sheet. `PygmentsTokens`
is an adaptor that converts a list of Pygments tokens into a list of
`(style_string, text)` tuples.

- Changes in the `Style` classes.

* `style.from_dict` does not exist anymore. Instantiate the ``Style`` class
directory to create a new style. ``Style.from_dict`` can be used to create
a style from a dictionary, where the dictionary keys are a space separated
list of class names, and the values, style strings (like before).

* `print_tokens` was renamed to `print_formatted_text`.

* In many places in the layout, we accept a parameter named `style`. All the
styles from the layout hierarchy are combined to decide what style to be

* The ANSI color names were confusing and inconsistent with common naming
conventions. This has been fixed, but aliases for the original names were

- The way focusing works is different. Before it was always a `Buffer` that
was focused, and because of that, any visible `BufferControl` that contained
this `Buffer` would be focused. Now, any user control can be focused. All
of this is handled in the `Application.layout` object.

- The `buffers` dictionary (`CommandLineInterface.buffers`) does not exist
anymore. Further, `buffers` was a `BufferMapping` that keeps track of which
buffer has the focus. This significantly reduces the freedom for creating
complex applications. We wanted to move toward a layout that can be defined
as a (hierarchical) collection of user widgets. A user widget does not need
to have a `Buffer` underneath and any widget should be focusable.

* `layout.Layout` was introduced to contain the root layout widget and keep
track of the focus.

- The key bindings were refactored. It became much more flexible to combine
sets of key bindings.

* `Registry` has been renamed to `KeyBindings`.
* The `add_binding` function has been renamed to simply `add`.
* Every `load_*` function returns one `KeyBindings` objects, instead of
populating an existing one, like before.
* `ConditionalKeyBindings` was added. This can be used to enable/disable
all the key bindings from a given `Registry`.
* A function named `merge_key_bindings` was added. This takes a list of
`KeyBindings` and merges them into one.
* `key_binding.defaults.load_key_bindings` was added to load all the key
* `KeyBindingManager` has been removed completely.
* `input_processor` was renamed to `key_processor`.


* The `Key` class does not exist anymore. Every key is a string and it's
considered fine to use string literals in the key bindings. This is more
readable, but we still have run-time validation. The `Keys` enum still
exist (for backwards-compatibility, but also to have an overview of which
keys are supported.)
* 'enter' and 'tab' are key aliases for 'c-m' and 'c-i'.

- User controls can define key bindings, which are active when the user control
is focused.

* `UIControl` got a `get_key_bindings` (abstract) method.

- Changes in the layout engine:

* `LayoutDimension` was renamed to `Dimension`.
* `VSplit` and `HSplit` now take a `padding` argument.
* `VSplit` and `HSplit` now take an `align` argument.
* `Float` now takes `allow_cover_cursor` and `attach_to_window` arguments.
* `Window` got an `WindowAlign` argument. This can be used for the alignment
of the content. `TokenListControl` (renamed to `FormattedTextControl`) does
not have an alignment argument anymore.
* All container objects, like `Window`, got a `style` argument. The style for
parent containers propagate to child containers, but can be overriden.
This is in particular useful for setting a background color.
* `FillControl` does not exist anymore. Use the `style` and `char` arguments
of the `Window` class instead.
* `DummyControl` was added.
* The continuation function of `PromptMargin` now takes `line_number` and
`is_soft_wrap` as input.

- Changes to `BufferControl`:

* The `InputProcessor` class has been refactored. The `apply_transformation`
method should now takes a `TransformationInput` object as input.

* The text `(reverse-i-search)` is now displayed through a processor. (See
the `shortcuts` module for an example of its usage.)

- `widgets` and `dialogs` modules:

* A small collection of widgets was added. These are more complex collections
of user controls that are ready to embed in a layout. A `shortcuts.dialogs`
module was added as a high level API for displaying input, confirmation and
message dialogs.

* Every class that exposes a ``__pt_container__`` method (which is supposed
to return a ``Container`` instance) is considered a widget. The
``to_container`` shortcut will call this method in situations where a
``Container`` object is expected. This avoids inheritance from other
``Container`` types, but also having to unpack the container object from
the widget, in case we would have used composition.

* Warning: The API of the widgets module is not considered stable yet, and
can change is the future, if needed.

- Changes to `Buffer`:

* A `Buffer` no longer takes an `accept_action`.  Both `AcceptAction` and
`AbortAction` have been removed. Instead it takes an `accept_handler`.

- Changes regarding auto completion:

* The left and right arrows now work in the multi-column auto completion
* By default, autocompletion is synchronous. The completer needs to be
wrapped in `ThreadedCompleter` in order to get asynchronous autocompletion.
* When the completer runs in a background thread, completions will be
displayed as soon as they are generated. This means that we don't have to
wait for all the completions to be generated, before displaying the first
one. The completion menus are updated as soon as new completions arrive.

- Changes regarding input validation:

* Added the `Validator.from_callable` class method for easy creation of
new validators.

- Changes regarding the `History` classes:

* The `History` base class has a different interface. This was needed for
asynchronous loading of the history. `ThreadedHistory` was added for this.

- Changes related to `shortcuts.prompt`:

* There is now a class `PromptSession` which also has a method `prompt`. Both
the class and the method take about the same arguments. This can be used to
create a session. Every `prompt` call of the same instance will reuse all
the arguments given to the class itself.

The input history is always shared during the entire session.

Of course, it's still possible to call the global `prompt` function. This
will create a new `PromptSession` every time when it's called.

* The `prompt` function now takes a `key_bindings` argument instead of
`key_bindings_registry`. This should only contain the additional bindings.
(The default bindings are always included.)

- Changes to the event loops:

* The event loop API is now closer to how asyncio works. A prompt_toolkit
`Application` now has a `Future` object. Calling the `.run_async()` method
creates and returns that `Future`. An event loop has a `run_until_complete`
method that takes a future and runs the event loop until the Future is set.

The idea is to be able to transition easily to asyncio when Python 2
support can be dropped in the future.

* `Application` still has a method `run()` that underneath still runs the
event loop until the `Future` is set and returns that result.

* The asyncio adaptors (like the asyncio event loop integration) now require
Python 3.5. (We use the async/await syntax internally.)

* The `Input` and `Output` classes have some changes. (Not really important.)

* `Application.run_sub_applications` has been removed. The alternative is to
call `run_coroutine_in_terminal` which returns a `Future`.

- Changes to the `filters` module:

* The `Application` is no longer passed around, so both `CLIFilter` and
`SimpleFilter` were merged into `Filter`. `to_cli_filter` and
`to_simple_filter` became `to_filter`.

* All filters have been turned into functions. For instance, `IsDone`
became `is_done` and `HasCompletions` became `has_completions`.

This was done because almost all classes were called without any arguments
in the `__init__` causing additional braces everywhere. This means that
`HasCompletions()` has to be replaced by `has_completions` (without

The few filters that took arguments as input, became functions, but still
have to be called with the given arguments.

For new filters, it is recommended to use the `Condition` decorator,
rather then inheriting from `Filter`.

- Other renames:

* `IncrementalSearchDirection` was renamed to `SearchDirection`.
* The `use_alternate_screen` parameter has been renamed to `full_screen`.
* `Buffer.initial_document` was renamed to `Buffer.document`.
* `TokenListControl` has been renamed to `FormattedTextControl`.
* `Application.set_return_value` has been renamed to `Application.set_result`.

- Other new features:

* `DummyAutoSuggest` and `DynamicAutoSuggest` were added.
* `DummyClipboard` and `DynamicClipboard` were added.
* `DummyCompleter` and `DynamicCompleter` were added.
* `DummyHistory` and `DynamicHistory` was added.

* `to_container` and `to_window` utilities were added.



- Fixed a bug in the `cooked_mode` context manager. This caused a bug in
ptpython where executing `input()` would display ^M instead of accepting the
- Handle race condition in eventloop/
- Updated ANSI color names for vt100. (High and low intensity colors were

New features:
- Added yank-nth-arg and yank-last-arg readline commands + Emacs bindings.
- Allow searching in Vi selection mode.
- Made text objects of the Vi 'n' and 'N' search bindings. This adds for
instance the following bindings: cn, cN, dn, dN, yn, yN



- In 'shortcuts': complete_while_typing was a SimpleFilter, not a CLIFilter.
- Always reset color attributes after rendering.
- Handle bug in Windows when '$TERM' is not defined.
- Ignore errors when calling tcgetattr/tcsetattr.
(This handles the "Inappropriate ioctl for device" crash in some scenarios.)
- Fix for Windows. Correctly recognize all Chinese and Lithuanian characters.

New features:
- Added shift+left/up/down/right keys.
- Small performance optimization in the renderer.
- Small optimization in the posix event loop. Don't call time.time() if we
don't have an inputhook. (Less syscalls.)
- Turned the _max_postpone_until argument of call_from_executor into a float.
(As returned by `time.time`.) This will do less system calls. It's
backwards-incompatible, but this is still a private API, used only by pymux.)
- Added Shift-I/A commands in Vi block selection mode for inserting text at the
beginning of each line of the block.
- Refactoring of the 'selectors' module for the posix event loop. (Reuse the
same selector object in one loop, don't recreate it for each select.)



- Bugfix in completion. When calculating the common completion to be inserted,
the new completions were calculated wrong.
- On Windows, avoid extra vertical scrolling if the cursor is already on screen.

New features:
- Support negative arguments for next/previous word ending/beginning.



- Go to the start of the line in Vi navigation mode, when 'j' or 'k' have been
pressed to navigate to a new history entry.
- Don't crash when pasting text that contains \r\n characters. (This could
happen in iTerm2.)
- Python 2.6 compatibility fix.
- Allow pressing <esc> before each -ve argument.
- Better support for conversion from ffffff values to ANSI colors in
* Prefer colors with some saturation, instead of gray colors, if the given
color was not gray.
* Prefer a different foreground and background color if they were
originally not the same. (This avoids concealing text.)

New features:
- Improved ANSI color support.
* If the $PROMPT_TOOLKIT_ANSI_COLORS_ONLY environment variable has been
set, use the 16 ANSI colors only.
* Take an `ansi_colors_only` parameter in `Vt100_Output` and



- Critical fix for running on Windows. The gevent work-around in the inputhook
caused 'An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket'.



- Key binding fixes:
* Improved handling of repeat arguments in Emacs mode. Pressing sequences
like 'esc---123' do now work (like GNU Readline):
- repetition of the minus sign is ignored.
- No esc prefix is required for each digit.
* Fix in ControlX-ControlX binding.
* Fix in bracketed paste.
* Pressing Control-U at the start of the line now deletes the newline.
* Pressing Control-K at the end of the line, deletes the newline after
the cursor.
* Support negative argument for Control-K
* Fixed cash when left/right were pressed with a negative argument. (In
Emacs mode.)
* Fix in ControlUp/ControlDown key bindings.
* Distinguish backspace from Control-H. They are not the same.
* Delete in front of the cursor when a negative argument has been given
to backspace.
* Handle arrow keys correctly in emacs-term.
- Performance optimizations:
* Performance optimization in Registry.
* Several performance optimization in filters.
* Import asyncio inline (only if required).
- Use the best possible selector in the event loop. This fixes bugs in
situations where we have too many open file descriptors.
- Fix UI freeze when gevent monkey patch has been applied.
- Fix segmentation fault in Alpine Linux. (Regarding the use of ioctl.)
- Use the correct colors on Windows. (When the foreground/background colors
have been modified.)
- Display a better error message when running in Idle.
- Additional flags for vt100 inputs: disable flow control.
- Also patch stderr in CommandLineInterface.patch_stdout_context.

New features:
- Allow users to enter Vi digraphs in reverse order.
- Improved autocompletion behaviour. See IPython issue 9658.
- Added a 'clear' function in the shortcuts module.

For future compatibility:
- `Keys.Enter` has been added. This is the key that should be bound for
handling the enter key.

Right now, prompt_toolkit translates \r into \n during the handling of the
input; this is not correct and makes it impossible to distinguish between
ControlJ and ControlM. Some applications bind ControlJ for custom handling of
the enter key, because this equals \n. However, in a future version we will
stop replacing \r by \n and at that point, the enter key will be ControlM.
So better is to use `Keys.Enter`, which becomes an alias for whatever the
enter key translates into.



- Bugfix for Python2 in readline-like completion.
- Bugfix in readline-like completion visualisation.

New features:
- Added `erase_when_done` parameter to the `Application` class.  (This was
required for the bug fixes.)
- Added (experimental) `CommandLineInterface.run_application_generator` method.
(Also required for the bug fix.)



- Don't select the first completion when `complete_while_typing` is False.
(Restore the old behaviour.)



- Bugfix in GrammarValidator and SentenceValidator.
- Don't leave the alternate screen on resize events.
- Use errors=surrogateescape, in order to handle mouse events in some
- Ignore key presses in _InterfaceEventLoopCallbacks.feed_key when the CLI is in the done state.
- Bugfix in get_common_complete_suffix. Don't return any suffix when there are
completions that change whatever is before the cursor.
- Bugfix for Win32/Python2: use unicode literals: This crashed arrow navigation
on Windows.
- Bugfix in InputProcessor: handling of more complex key bindings.
- Fix: don't apply completions, if there is only one completion which doesn't
have any effect.
- Fix: correctly handle prompts starting with a newline in
- Fix: thread safety in autocomplete code.
- Improve styling for matching brackets. (Allow individual styling for the
bracket under the cursor and the other.)
- Fix in ShowLeadingWhiteSpaceProcessor/ShowTrailingWhiteSpaceProcessor: take
output encoding into account. (The signature had to change a little for
- Bug fix in key bindings: only activate Emacs system/open-in-editor bindings
if editing_mode is emacs.
- Added write_binary parameter to Vt100_Output. This fixes a bug in some cases
where we expect it to write non-encoded strings.
- Fix key bindings for Vi mode registers.

New features (**):
- Added shortcuts.confirm/create_confirm_application function.
- Emulate bracketed paste on Windows. (When the input stream contains multiple
key presses among which a newline and at least one other character, consider
this a paste event, and handle as bracketed paste on Unix.
- Added key handler for displaying completions, just like readline does.
- Implemented Vi guu,gUU,g~~ key bindings.
- Implemented Vi 'gJ' key binding.
- Implemented Vi ab,ib,aB,iB text objects.
- Support for ZeroWidthEscape tokens in prompt and token lists. Used to support
final shell integration.
- Fix: Make document.text/cursor_position/selection read-only. (Changing these
would break the caching causing bigger issues.)
- Using pytest for unit tests.
- Allow key bindings to have Keys.Any at any possible position. (Not just the
end.) This made it significantly easier to write the named register Vi
bindings, resulting in an approved start-up time.)
- Better feedback when entering multi-key key bindings in insert mode. (E.g.
when 'jj' would be mapped to escape.)
- Small improvement in key processor: allow key bindings to generate new key
- Handle ControlUp and ControlDown by default: move to the previous/next record
in the history.
- Accept 'char'/'get_char' parameters in FillControl.
- Added refresh_interval method to prompt() function.

Performance improvements:
- Improve the performance of test_callable_args: this should significantly
increase the start-up time.
- Start-up time for creating the Vi bindings has been improved significantly.

(**) Some small backwards-compatible features were allowed for this minor
release. After evaluating the impact/risk/work involved we concluded that
we could ship these in a minor release.

- run_in_terminal now returns the result of the called function.
- Made history attribute of Buffer class public.
- Added support for sub CommandLineInterfaces.
- Accept optional vi_state parameter in KeyBindingManager.

- Pop-up menu positioning. The menu was shown too often above instead of below

New features:
- Added `prompt_toolkit.layout.utils.iter_token_lines`.

- Added `pre_run` parameter to CommandLineInterface.
- Correct invalidation of BeforeInput and AfterInput.
- Correctly handle transparency. (For floats.)
- Small change in the algorithm to determine Window dimensions: keep in the
bounds of the Window dimensions.

Backwards-incompatible changes:
- There a now a `Lexer` abstract base class. Every lexer should be an instance
of that class, and Pygments lexers should be wrapped in a `PygmentsLexer`
class. `prompt_toolkit.shortcuts` still accepts Pygments lexers directly for
- BufferControl no longer has a `show_line_numbers` argument. Pass a
`NumberedMargin` instance instead.
