Hammer(1): failure to expand ~/.cache when creating directory for ~/.cache/hammer_completion.yml

hammer(1) tries to create ~/.cache to store ~/.cache/hammer_completion.yml, which is the default setting for this location. But the default value, does not undergo tilde expansion, and the mkdir(2) will create a directory call “~”, if it can (see bug report for a detail discussion).

Expected outcome: The default value should be functional and the value should undergo tilde expansion before being used.

Foreman and Proxy versions: 2.3.0

Hi @illumino,

So sorry that you’ve encountered such annoying bug, but the patch is ready and the fix will be probably available [1] in the next minor release (hammer-cli 2.3.1).

Thanks for using autocompletion and sharing the issue, I hope you’ll enjoy this feature more next time :slight_smile:
