* Where to put my own completions?

I have some completions outsided of packages. Once I decided to put those
completions into ~/.zfunc directory and define things like follows

fpath+=~/.zfunc
autoload -Uz compinit
zstyle ':completion:*' menu select
compinit


Question: Is there a recommended directory where to put completions into, or is
it just like "Do what you want!" ?

I tend to put them in my zshrc alongside the function definitions:

f() { echo $1 $2 }
_f() { _arguments "1:foo" "2:bar" }
compdef _f f

It's convenient since they tend to change in lockstep.

Or one could use the XDG envvars / default paths:
https://specifications.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-latest.html

And for system-wise completions there's the site-functions dir, part of the default $fpath.

Cheers,

Daniel

Thanks for your reply.

I personally prefer to have a single file for each completion. I don't want to
fill the .zshrc with different completions where each completion could have
40-70 lines or so.

From your reply I take that there is no recommendation from zsh perspective.

I have the following but I must have copied this from someone

# add custom completion scripts

fpath=(~/.zsh/completion $fpath)
