We are really excited to announce our latest integration with Fig! For those of you who don’t know about Fig, it is a tool that adds IDE-style autocomplete to your existing terminal (currently on macOS.)
When I was onboarding at Sourcegraph one of my todos was to install and learn how to use
src, a command-line interface to Sourcegraph. The installation was straightforward, but I couldn’t remember all of the different subcommands so I found myself typing
src --help and hitting the up arrow a lot.
Then I remembered Zeno Rocha tweeting about Fig and I thought this might be a good opportunity to write an integration. After demoing the proof of concept to my team I got a lot of great feedback and decided to make a pull request to Fig on GitHub.
Let’s see this in action!
I’m in the process of creating a budget for sponsoring the dependencies that Sourcegraph uses via Open Collective. Here is a real-world example of how I accomplish that.
Want to try it out?
We got you covered. Install
src (no login required):
# via Curl curl -L https://sourcegraph.com/.api/src-cli/src_darwin_amd64 -o /usr/local/bin/src chmod +x /usr/local/bin/src # via Brew brew install sourcegraph/src-cli/src-cli
Next, download Fig and open/restart your terminal.
src and you should see an IDE-style autocomplete with subcommands and options.
Last but not least, a huge thanks to the Fig team ◧ especially Federico Ciardi for their help. We look forward to working together again!
