asdf Backend

asdf is the original backend for mise. It's the default if no backend is specified, e.g.: mise i ripgrep will use asdf but mise i cargo:ripgrep will use the cargo backend. You can explicitly specify the asdf backend with mise i asdf:ripgrep. If you wish.

There are hundreds of plugins available in the mise registry and you can also install plugins from git repos or local directories.


Take care using plugins as well as anything else you get from the internet. CLIs are unfortunately capable of doing a lot of damage to your system if a bad actor manages to get into your system through a plugin or other tool.
