Thanks. It seems to be working. When I put the modules in
.textadept/modules/ I got a file not found error, so I tried putting
them in the directory where it seemed to be looking for them, which was
the modules subdir in the textadept_6.3.x86_64 dir that I'm running the
textadept binary from.

Now I seem to have automatic indentation and some code completion for

What should I expect the code completion to be able to do? ctrl-space
and ctrl-h seem to work for Python builtins such as map(), but not for
anything else, for example not for standard library modules that I
import, nor for classes and functions that I define in the file I'm editing.

Is it still quite limited currently?
