This directory should be on you system PATH.

If this flag is omitted, the script will check if:

  • The directory $HOME/bin is on you system PATH.

If all of the above is true, the script will save the Attini CLI to $HOME/bin, if not, the Attini CLI will be saved to /usr/local/bin which requires privileged access (root/admin).

Setup Attini CLI autocomplete

After you installed the Attini CLI, you can activate autocomplete by running this command:

source <(attini generate-completion)

If you have any issues with this command, see our common issues section.

To automatically run this command in new shells do the following:

echo "Adding attini auto complete to $RC_FILE"
echo 'source <(attini generate-completion)' >> $RC_FILE;

If you are using zsh you might get this warning:

zsh compinit: insecure directories, run compaudit for list.
Ignore insecure directories and continue [y] or abort compinit [n]?

Fix this with this script:

compaudit | xargs chmod go-w

This command limits the access to some system files that zsh warns you about. We recommend that you do your own research regarding this issue or talk to your company’s systems administrators for approval before applying this fix.
