Startup scripts must be named as follows:
For Python mode:
MySQL Shell searches the following paths for these files (in order of execution).
<mysqlsh binary path>\mysqlshrc.[js|py]
On Linux and OSX:
<mysqlsh binary path>/mysqlshrc.[js|py]
The lists above also define the order of searching the paths, so if something is defined in two different scripts, the script executed later takes precedence.
The environment variable
MYSQLSH_HOME, used in
option 2, defines the root folder of a standard setup of
MySQL Shell. If
MYSQLSH_HOME is not defined
it is automatically calculated based on the location of the
MySQL Shell binary, therefore on many standard setups it is not
required to define
MYSQLSH_HOME is not defined and the
MySQL Shell binary is not in a standard install folder
structure, then the path defined in option 3 in the above lists is
used. If using a standard install or if
MYSQLSH_HOME points to a standard install
folder structure, then the path defined in option 3 is not used.
The user configuration path in option 4 can be overridden on all
platforms by defining the environment variable
MYSQLSH_USER_CONFIG_HOME. The value of this
~/.mysqlsh/ on Unix.
