shell completions#

Description#

The completion command generates shell completions for bash/zsh/fish shells.

Usage#

containerlab completion [arg]

Bash completions#

source <(containerlab completion bash)

To load completions for each session, execute once:

# linux
$ containerlab completion bash > /etc/bash_completion.d/containerlab

# macOS
$ containerlab completion bash > /usr/local/etc/bash_completion.d/containerlab

ZSH completions#

If shell completion is not already enabled in your environment, users will need to enable it. To do so, execute the following once:

echo "autoload -U compinit; compinit" >> ~/.zshrc

To load completions for each session, execute once:

containerlab completion zsh > "${fpath[1]}/_containerlab"

Info

Note: $fpath[1] in this command refers to the first path in $fpath. Ensure you use the index pointing to the completion folder, find the correct index by inspecting the output of echo $fpath

Start a new shell for this setup to take effect.

Fish completions#

containerlab completion fish | source

To load completions for each session, execute once:

containerlab completion fish > ~/.config/fish/completions/containerlab.fish
