The Qtile command shell is a command-line shell interface that provides access
to the full complement of Qtile command functions. The shell features command
name completion, and full command documentation can be accessed from the shell
itself. The shell uses GNU Readline when it’s available, so the interface can
be configured to, for example, obey VI keybindings with an appropriate
.inputrc file. See the GNU Readline documentation for more information.
