Auto suggestions

You can provide suggestions to the input, number and list prompt to enable tab-completions with the suggestions and/or id option. If an id is provided, the values will be saved to the local storage using the id as local storage key. With suggestions you can provide some default suggestions. Both options can be defined at the same time.

deno install you/cli.ts --location https://example.com
# or
deno run you/cli.ts --location https://example.comCopy

  ],
});

$ deno run --unstable https://deno.land/x/cliffy@v0.25.0/examples/prompt/suggestions.tsCopy

Local storage id

If the id option is provided, values are stored in the local storage using the id as local storage key. The stored values are used as suggestions at the next time the prompt is used.

❕ The id option requires deno >= 1.10 and the --location flag. Since deno 1.16.0 the --location flag is optional.
