WslDomain

Since: 20220319-142410-0fcdea07

The WslDomain struct specifies information about an individual WslDomain, which is used to tell wezterm how to interact with one of your locally installed WSL distributions.

By mapping a distribution to a multiplexing domain, wezterm is better able to support creating new tabs and panes with the same working directory as an existing tab/pane running in that same domain.

By default, wezterm creates a list of WslDomain objects based on parsing the output from wsl -l -v and assigns that as the value of the wsl_domains configuration option.

A WslDomain is a lua object with the following fields:

return {
  wls_domains = {
    {
      -- The name of this specific domain.  Must be unique amonst all types
      -- of domain in the configuration file.
      name = 'WSL:Ubuntu-18.04',

      -- The name of the distribution.  This identifies the WSL distribution.
      -- It must match a valid distribution from your `wsl -l -v` output in
      -- order for the domain to be useful.
      distribution = 'Ubuntu-18.04',

      -- The username to use when spawning commands in the distribution.
      -- If omitted, the default user for that distribution will be used.

      -- username = "hunter",

      -- The current working directory to use when spawning commands, if
      -- the SpawnCommand doesn't otherwise specify the directory.

      -- default_cwd = "/tmp"

      -- The default command to run, if the SpawnCommand doesn't otherwise
      -- override it.  Note that you may prefer to use `chsh` to set the
      -- default shell for your user inside WSL to avoid needing to
      -- specify it here

      -- default_prog = {"fish"}
    },
  },
}
