Git autocomplete

From Dreamwidth Notes

If you are using git on a dreamhack, you can set up the bash shell to autocomplete git commands and branch names. This is Very Useful.

First, download the script:

wget ~/bin/

Then, set your shell to load this script. Edit the file .bashrc in your home directory,

nano ~/.bashrc

and add this command to the end of it:

source ~/bin/

From the next time you log in, you should be able to press tab and have git commands and git branch names autocomplete on the command line. Shiny!
