Command line tab-completion

Unlike other popular package managers, which usually require plugins, pnpm supports command line tab-completion for Bash, Zsh, Fish, and similar shells.

To setup autocompletion, run:

pnpm install-completion

The CLI will ask for which shell to generate the autocompletion script. Alternatively, the target shell may be specified in the command line:

pnpm install-completion zsh

Fig (on macOS only)
