hugo gen autocomplete

hugo gen autocomplete

Generate shell autocompletion script for Hugo


Generates a shell autocompletion script for Hugo.

NOTE: The current version supports Bash only. This should work for *nix systems with Bash installed.

By default, the file is written directly to /etc/bash_completion.d for convenience, and the command may need superuser rights, e.g.:

$ sudo hugo genautocomplete

Add --completionfile=/path/to/file flag to set alternative file-path and name.

Logout and in again to reload the completion scripts, or just source them in directly:

$ . /etc/bash_completion
hugo gen autocomplete


      --completionfile="/etc/bash_completion.d/": Autocompletion file
      --type="bash": Autocompletion type (currently only bash supported)
