Hi, so I understand we need to source setup.bash every time to use the ros2 CLI. Is there any script to do this in fish shell?

You can use to do that.

bass source /opt/ros/galactic/setup.bash

Also, if you launch fish after sourcing in bash, env values will be reflected.

// .bashrc
source /opt/ros/galactic/setup.bash

For more advanced use cases, please take a look at my settings if you are interested. I've developed a couple of useful plugins.๐Ÿ˜€

Thanks so much! I noticed you source rosfish so I checked that out. Is that only a ROS 1 thing? Can I use it for ROS 2 Eloquent?

@Jason1923 Yes, it's for ROS1. This does the equivalent things in ROS2.

register-python-argcomplete --shell fish ros2 | source

FYI: If this PR is merged, I guess argcompleteis automatically loaded.
