I found this old thread after submitting patch #34003. I think that
patch has probably solved your problem.
I submitted patch #34003 to update fish to 3.0.0. In that patch, I
enabled fish to add user's and system's profiles to __extra_* variables.
So now fish can load completions and functions from user's and system's
$fish_complete_path and $fish_function_path become this on my computer:
~ echo $fish_complete_path | tr ' ' '\n'
~ echo $fish_function_path | tr ' ' '\n'
We can then install fish completions and functions into either user's or
system's profile. And fish will happily load them.
For example, youtube-dl provides a fish completion:
After installing youtube-dl into my user profile, youtube-dl command
completion works in fish:
~ youtube-dl --<Hit TAB>
--abort-on-error (Abort downloading of further videos…)
--abort-on-unavailable-fragment (Abort downloading wh…)
--add-header (Specify a custom HTTP header and its va…)
--add-metadata (Write metadata to the video file)
…and 159 more rows
youtube-dl is now in my user profile:
