  • <SHELL> possible values: bash, elvish, fish, powershell, zsh

When installing Amphitheatre CLI through a package manager, it's possible that no additional shell configuration is necessary to gain completion support. For Homebrew, see

If you need to set up completions manually, follow the instructions below. The exact config file locations might vary based on your system. Make sure to restart your shell before testing whether completions are working.


First, ensure that you install bash-completion using your package manager. After, add this to your ~/.bash_profile:

eval "$(amp completion bash)"


Generate a _amp completion script and put it somewhere in your $fpath:

amp completion zsh > /usr/local/share/zsh/site-functions/_amp

Ensure that the following is present in your ~/.zshrc:

autoload -U compinit
compinit -i

Zsh version 5.7 or later is recommended.


Generate a completion script:

amp completion fish > ~/.config/fish/completions/


Open your profile script with:

mkdir -Path (Split-Path -Parent $profile) -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
notepad $profile

Add the line and save the file:

Invoke-Expression -Command $(amp completion powershell | Out-String)
