Knife bash completion


#1

Attached is a bash completion script for knife. 1st level command
completion is fast (and hardcoded), nth level is read from knife sub command --help so it’s a little slow.

If anyone feels like adding feature, please do.

Thanks.

One thing I forgot to mention is the CHEF_REPOS variable. If you want
completion for your cookbooks on the knife cookbook upload command set
this variable as an array pointing to your chef cookbook directories
like so:

export CHEF_REPOS=( /home/avishai/chef-repo/site-cookbooks
/home/avishai/chef-repo/cookbooks )

You could read the cookbooks path from the users knife.rb:

Chef::Knife.new.configure_chef
CHEF_REPOS = Chef::Config[:cookbook_path]
