18.7 Customizing MySQL Shell

MySQL Shell offers the ability to customize the behavior and code execution environment through startup scripts, which are executed when the application is first run. Using such scripts enables you to:

  • Add additional search paths for Python or JavaScript modules.

  • Override the default prompt used by the Python and JavaScript modes.

  • Define global functions or variables.

  • Any other possible initialization through JavaScript or Python.
