Re: completely disable zsh completion system

Hi All,

Sorry for the late reply.

I actually find completions easier than keybindinge or aliases. That is why I was trying to write some completion functions. The zsh completion system seemed very complex to me, That is why I was thinking of using fzf completion. I also thought that if I write fzf completions then that will be portable to bash as well. However, I found that fzf completion also calls the zsh completion system. So I inferred that it will be complexity over complexity.

I went through some books and am now comfortable with most of the concepts (except tags) in zsh completion. So, I think I will stick to it for now.

Being said that, I will much appreciate it if someone kindly gives some examples of tags in completion and explains how they are useful. (You can find this question in the email subject "how to use tags in zsh completion system". Sorry I do not know how to refer to another email that is why I am writing like this. If possible then please also let me know how to refer to another email).

Thanks and Best Regards,

Ahmad Ismail

That was my question as well, but I figured I must be missing something.

I remember when I first learned about completion and it was literally a transformative moment in my computer use, along the lines of my first modem connection and my first always-on Internet connection.
