glab completion

Generate shell completion scripts


Generate shell completion scripts for glab commands.

The output of this command will be computer code and is meant to be saved to a file or immediately evaluated by an interactive shell.

For example, for bash you could add this to your ‘~/.bash_profile’:

eval “$(glab completion -s bash)”
Generate a %[1]s_gh%[1]s completion script and put it somewhere in your %[1]s$fpath%[1]s:
gh completion -s zsh > /usr/local/share/zsh/site-functions/_gh
Ensure that the following is present in your %[1]s~/.zshrc%[1]s:
autoload -U compinit compinit -i

Zsh version 5.7 or later is recommended.

When installing glab through a package manager, however, it’s possible that no additional shell configuration is necessary to gain completion support. For Homebrew, see <>
