Clink — bash-style command line completion

Post by troet » Wed 08 Nov, 2017 07:52

I very much love the unix-bash-style tab completion and never got comfortable with the far way of displaying a selection list for that.
Now I stumbled upon clink. (I'm not able to post a link to it. Please find it on mridgers dot github dot io/clink/). Some sites on the Internet suggest that it should integrate with Conemu and Far Manager.

But I cannot get it to do what I want: The Tab completion only works with conemu alone, on the Far command line no key bindings seem to be active. And I find no way of assigning bindings to the clink functions.

Has anyone managed to get it to work?

Ideas to integrate Clink into FAR were raised several times in the Russian-language part of the forum over the years but nobody made even a prototype AFAIK.

My IMHO is, that FAR by itself is kind of "clink".
It makes console more feature rich, or kind of shell.
I would not say that cLink is richer or better, or add something to already existing FAR abilities.
You may implement bash-like behaviour in FAR with some lua-macros for example
However, historically that is something against traditional common practices using FAR.

BTW, that is the problem with FAR completion?
it has a few decent option to adjust as needed:
