  • The source of information used for the completion is gathered from the usage of the CLI tool.
  • This script relies on Apache Kafka Confluent distribution (either Open Source or Enterprise)
  • To avoid reloading and parsing all the information and each shell, a first script kafka.plugin.zsh.generator is actually gathering all the information on the local machine and generating the kafka.plugin.zsh auto-completion file with hardcoded information.
