Please send this patch to the original author of cloudapp.rb.

Bringing @matthewmccullough into the discussion...

Sorin Ionescu

@robbyrussell I believe @holman is the original author.

I don't think this makes much sense as a plugin. It's an alias to a script. cloudapp.rb makes more sense being dropped in one's personal bin directory.

Matthew McCullough

I agree that it is centered around an alias and I could add some completions. But is purely aliases. I would like to know what the threshold is for a plugin if others are just aliases. Let me know and we'll proceed accordingly.

Sorin Ionescu

Many aliases are fine. In this case, it's just one alias to a script that should be in a /bin directory in your $PATH with many other scripts.
