Topology file auto-detect#
With embedded shorthands
dep and so on, we made using containerlab over the CLI a fast and pleasant experience. But even then, typing
clab dep -t mytopo.clab.yml is one argument too long.
Please welcome the topology file auto-detect feature which turns
clab dep -t mytopo.clab.yml to just
A single file matching
*.clab.y*ml pattern must be present in the current working directory for auto-detect feature to work.
Should you have multiple topology files, use the
--topo flag as before.

--reconfigureas it is very handy to use
clab dep -cto cleanly redeploy the lab during the iterations of lab build-out.
