    Description

      A very useful feature would be adding *.pyi files to the ROOT installation with type hints, which supports for example autocompletion in IDEs.

      An example *.pyi file for the TH1 class would be

      class TH1:
          @overload
          def __init__(self) -> None: ...
          @overload
          def __init__(self, name: str, title: str, nbinsx: int, xlow: float, xup: float) -> None: ...
      

      Here the related PEP 484 describing type hints/annotations: https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0484/
