nextstrain init-shell

usage: nextstrain init-shell [-h] [shell]

Prints the shell init script for a Nextstrain CLI standalone installation.

If PATH does not contain the expected installation path, emits an appropriate export PATH=… statement. Otherwise, emits only a comment.

Use this command in your shell config with a line like the following:

eval "$(…/path/to/nextstrain init-shell)"

Exits with error if run in an non-standalone installation.

positional arguments


Shell that’s being initialized (e.g. bash, zsh, etc.); currently we always emit POSIX shell syntax but this may change in the future.
