Output shell completion code for the specified shell (bash or zsh). The shell code must be evaluated to provide interactive completion of kubeadm commands. This can be done by sourcing it from the .bash_profile.

Note: this requires the bash-completion framework.

To install it on Mac use homebrew: $ brew install bash-completion Once installed, bash_completion must be evaluated. This can be done by adding the following line to the .bash_profile $ source $(brew --prefix)/etc/bash_completion

If bash-completion is not installed on Linux, please install the 'bash-completion' package via your distribution's package manager.

Note for zsh users: [1] zsh completions are only supported in versions of zsh >= 5.2
