This doesn't sound particularly difficult to do, since rebar3_auto just 
calls the shell provider directly: 

You probably just need to patch it with the argument list accepted by 
shell (see 
for it to be able to pass them on to the shell provider transparently.

Then you could call them with the same arguments. I haven't tried this  
-- I myself use triggers with shellrpc from my editor 
(https://github.com/ferd/rebar3_shellrpc) -- but I don't think it should 
be much harder than that.
