Extending The Shell

Updated: March 18, 2024

This section is intended for developers who wants to provide new Shell commands, namespaces or Shell Features.

Table of contents:

  • Shell Features — In order to install new commands to existing namespaces or to register new namespaces, completors, injector providers or other Shell objects you must create a new Shell Feature.
  • Shell Commands — Let's look now into Command implementation details.
  • Shell Namespaces — We've already seen how to add new Shell Features and how to implement new commands. This last chapter is talking a bit about Shell Namespaces.
  • Shell Documentation — Commands are self documented by using annotations. These annotations are used to generate the base of the command documentation, like: short description, syntax, options, arguments etc. Using this information the shell automatically generates basic help for you.
