Bash-it is a collection of community Bash commands and scripts for Bash 3.2+. (And a shameless ripoff of oh-my-zsh :smiley:)

Includes autocompletion, themes, aliases, custom functions, a few stolen pieces from Steve Losh, and more.

Bash-it provides a solid framework for using, developing and maintaining shell scripts and custom commands for your daily work. If you're using the Bourne Again Shell (Bash) regularly and have been looking for an easy way on how to keep all of these nice little scripts and aliases under control, then Bash-it is for you!
Stop polluting your

directory and your
file, fork/clone Bash-it and start hacking away.


1) Check out a clone of this repo to a location of your choice, such as

git clone --depth=1 ~/.bash_it
2) Run

That's it! :smiley:

You can check out more components of Bash-it, and customize it to your desire.
For more information, see detailed instructions here.
