Most of our team works with a Linux distribution. I prefer Mac OSX to work with. In my opinion, the Mac combines usability, design and a UNIX-based operating system. Every now and then, however, I envy my colleagues for one function or another. Even if they are mostly console tools.
Of course our servers run Linux as operating system, and if I develop something on the server or "commit" I find the autocomplete function of the Bash very charming and helpful for Git.
On a Mac this function is not pre-installed and I missed it so much today or was so annoyed that this circumstance had to be removed at all costs. At first I wasn't sure if there was a solution for the Mac, but as so often in life one is only one click away from happiness.
Since others have certainly not yet installed this additional tool, I don't want to withhold it from you. Bash-complition is also available for Mac.
The installation is quite simple and is finished after three steps.
if [ -f `brew --prefix`/etc/bash_completion ]; then . `brew --prefix`/etc/bash_completion fi
With these few steps you will have an easier life in the console in the near future.
