Shell Completion

$ # or, if you have additional commands that support --introspect-flags:
$ CMDS='foo bar baz' bundle exec make bash
$ cp completions/kbsecret.bash ${YOUR_COMPLETION_DIR}

To use the completions for zsh, add the completions directory to your $fpath or copy the completions/_kbsecret file to any of the directories in it.

To use the fish completions, copy completions/kbsecret.fish to your ~/.config/fish/completions folder.

Please feel free to contribute completion scripts for other shells!
