Bash completion for Fabric


Script provides completion for fab tasks and long options.

All available tasks are cached in special file to speed up the response. Cache file with tasks updates on every fabfile modification.

Long options (like --help, --version etc.) are cached only when completion is used at first time.


Download and add to your .bashrc file:

source /path/to/file/fabric-completion.bash

Add .fab_tasks~ (see below) to your .gitignore.


There are two params:

  • Use cache files for fab tasks or not.

    Enabled by default.

    To disable add add the following line to your .bashrc:

  • File name where tasks cache will be stored (in current directory).

    Default value is .fab_tasks~.

    To change the name, add the following line to your .bashrc:

    export FAB_COMPLETION_CACHED_TASKS_FILENAME="<cache-file-name>"
