View Source

Prints a message and asks the user to confirm if they want to proceed. The user must type and submit one of "y", "yes", "Y", "YES" or "Yes".

The user may also press Enter; this can be configured to either accept or reject the prompt. The latter case may be useful for a potentially dangerous operation that should require explicit confirmation from the user.

Options

  • :default - (:yes or :no) if :yes pressing Enter accepts the prompt; if :no pressing Enter rejects the prompt instead. Defaults to :yes.

Examples

if Mix.shell().yes?("Are you sure?") do
  # do something...
end
