Using command completion

Currently command completion is only supported for bash, zsh, and fish shells.

odo provides a smart completion of command parameters based on user input. For this to work, odo needs to integrate with the executing shell.

  • To install command completion automatically:

    1. Run:

      $ odo --complete
    2. Press y when prompted to install the completion hook.

  • To install the completion hook manually, add complete -o nospace -C <full path to your odo binary> odo to your shell configuration file. After any modification to your shell configuration file, restart your shell.

  • To disable completion:

    1. Run:

      $ odo --uncomplete
    2. Press y when prompted to uninstall the completion hook.

Re-enable command completion if you either rename the odo executable or move it to a different directory.

Ignoring files or patterns

You can configure a list of files or patterns to ignore by modifying the .odoignore file in the root directory of your application. This applies to both odo push and odo watch.

If the .odoignore file does not exist, the .gitignore file is used instead for ignoring specific files and folders.

To ignore .git files, any files with the .js extension, and the folder tests, add the following to either the .odoignore or the .gitignore file:


The .odoignore file allows any glob expressions.
