Abra guide

Enable auto-completion


Copy scripts/autocomplete/bash into /etc/bash_completion.d/ and rename it to abra.

sudo cp scripts/autocomplete/bash /etc/bash_completion.d/abra
source /etc/bash_completion.d/abra

In development, you can source the script in your git checkout, just make sure to set PROG=abra, otherwise it'll add completion to the wrong command:

PROG=abra source /path/to/abra/scripts/autocomplete/bash


(fi)zsh doesn't have an autocompletion folder by default but you can create one, then copy scripts/autocomplete/zsh into it and add a couple lines to your ~/.zshrc or ~/.fizsh/.fizshrc

sudo mkdir /etc/zsh/completion.d/
sudo cp scripts/autocomplete/zsh /etc/zsh/completion.d/abra
echo "PROG=abra\n_CLI_ZSH_AUTOCOMPLETE_HACK=1\nsource /etc/zsh/completion.d/abra" >> ~/.zshrc

(replace .zshrc with ~/.fizsh/.fizshrc if you use fizsh)
