The primary function of sshush.

Generation of the SSH config file

Running sshush with no arguments will use its defaults and generate your SSH config.

This will override whatever is there currently, hence the alert above. This is your last warning. Go back it up!

$ sshush

Default locations

Run with no options, sshush will assume the following paths:

  • $HOME/.ssh/config.yml - for sshush’s config
  • $HOME/.ssh/config - for the destination generated config file


–source (-s)

One or more sources containing sshush formatted yaml.

Glob patterns are supported.

–path (-p)

The path to the ssh config file to be generated.
