Multi-Choice Presets

Sometimes you might have a set of values that are often used interchangably. Multi-choice preset variables are the perfect use case for this.

In this example, URL is a regular variable with a default of https://. Instead of using regular variables for Request Type and Content-Type, they specify a list of options to choose from.

curl '#{[URL=https://]}' -X '#select{[Request Type=GET,POST,DELETE,PUT]}' -H 'Content-Type: #select{[Content Type=application/json,text/html;charset=utf-8]}'

The Syntax for a multi-choice preset is

#select{[Name=option 1,option 2,option 3]}

Notice the select keyword and each option is listed after the = and seperated by ,.

When triggering the copy process for a command the first 5 options have keybinds (1,2,3, etc).

Multi Choice Preset Variables

Referencing Multi-Choice Presets

To reference a multi-choice variable more than once use the regular variable syntax.

For example, in the following snippet, there is an environment variable called EMBER_ENV which is set with a multi-choice variable and can be set as production or development.

The value is then reused later, where it gets passed to the `--environment` argument with the regular variable syntax.

EMBER_ENV=#select{[env=production,development]} ember serve --environment=#{[env]}
