Completion Command

The amp completion command allows you to add shell completion to your AMP CLI.


$ amp completion --help

Usage:	amp completion SHELL [flags]

Output shell completion code for the specified shell (bash or zsh)


		# Install bash completion on a Mac using homebrew

		    $ brew install bash-completion

		Once installed, bash_completion must be evaluated.  This can be done by adding the
		following line to the .bash_profile, and reloading it

		    source $(brew --prefix)/etc/bash_completion

		    $ source $HOME/.bash_profile

		# Write bash completion code to a file

		    $ amp completion bash > ~/.config/amp/

		Add this line in your $HOME/.bash_profile, and reload it

		    source "$HOME/.config/amp/"

		    $ source $HOME/.bash_profile

		# Load the amp completion code for zsh[1] into the current shell
		source <(amp completion zsh)

  -h, --help            Print usage
  -k, --insecure        Control whether amp verifies the server's certificate chain and host name
  -s, --server string   Specify server (host:port)

TIP: Use -h or --help option for any of the AMP commands or sub-commands to more information about the command's usage.


In order to use shell completion with AMP, follow the installation instructions for your corresponding shell.


Make sure bash completion is installed:

  • Most current Linux OS (non-minimal installations) have bash completion.
  • On Mac, install with brew install bash-completion

After bash completion is installed, add the following line to your ~/.bash_profile file:

source $(brew --prefix)/etc/bash_completion

Then, either source your ~/.bash_profile or launch a new terminal.

Now you need to write the bash completion, generated by AMP, to a file. We recommend writing it to a file in your $HOME/.config/amp directory.

$ amp completion bash > ~/.config/amp/

After doing this, add the following line to your ~/.bash_profile file to source your bash completion file.

source "$HOME/.config/amp/"

Then either source your ~/.bash_profile or launch a new terminal again.


In a Zsh shell, load the amp completion code with:

$ source <(amp completion zsh)

or add source <(amp completion zsh) to your ~/.zshrc file.


With the shell completion code loaded for AMP, you can hit tab twice to view the shell completion.

$ amp
cluster     completion  config      login       logout      logs        password    service     stack       stats       team        user        version     whoami
$ amp stack
deploy    logs      ls        rm        services
$ amp stack deploy -c examples/stacks/pinger/   pinger.yml
