So I just recently got into coding (Python) and I am using Ubuntu 16.04 and the Atom text editor.

A very annoying feature is the auto-completion. For example, I type in x (a variable I set previously) and when I press enter to get to the next line, it autocompletes to # XXX: for some reason. That's very annoying and I want to disable that feature.

I searched the config but I couldn't find an option for that.

Can anyone help me with my problem?


I had the same thing, but rather than disabling the autocomplete package you can just change the hotkey. By default, the suggestion is autocompleted when you press either tab or enter which is annoying when you press enter to get to next line.

I changed it to tab only so that I can still use autocomplete when it's useful, but it won't put the wrong text in place when starting a new line.
