Zumba Engineering Blog:
Creating bash completion to your console application
August 21, 2012 @ 09:47:52

On the Zumba Engineering blog there's a new post showing you how to implement bash shell "autocomplete" with a special option for a second argument.

This weekend I saw the bash completion for CakePHP from Andy Dawson and had an idea to do the same for our service application, because we frequently forget the exactly job class or method name and add extra steps to verify these names before execute the job. I read his code, made some research and finally get our bash completion working fine.

In his case he wanted to see what things a module in the application had to offer, so he implemented a "__check__" argument that looked at the third argument and used reflection to get the methods allowed for it. Also included in the post is the bash alias you'll need to set up to get it working (and where to put it to make it cooperate).
