Enabling Shell Completion

To enable shell completion, follow these steps:

The default version of Bash for Mac OS X users does not support programmable shell completion. Guides like this will help you install a newer version of Bash.

Create the Spyctl directory if you haven’t already.

mkdir -p ~/.spyctl

Generate the shell completion script.

_SPYCTL_COMPLETE=bash_source spyctl > ~/.spyctl/spyctl-complete.bash

Add the following line to the end of ~/.bashrc.

. ~/.spyctl/spyctl-complete.bash

After modifying the shell config, you need to start a new shell in order for the changes to be loaded.
