Git branch bash autocomplete *with aliases* (add to .bash_profile)
# To Setup:
# 1) Save the .git-completion.bash file found here:
# 2) Add the following lines to your .bash_profile, be sure to reload (for example: source ~/.bash_profile) for the changes to take effect:
# Git branch bash completion
if [ -f ~/.git-completion.bash ]; then
. ~/.git-completion.bash
# Add git completion to aliases
__git_complete g __git_main
__git_complete gc _git_checkout
__git_complete gm __git_merge
__git_complete gp _git_pull
# Make sure you actually have those aliases defined, of course.
alias g="git"
alias gc="git checkout"
alias gm="git merge"
alias gp="git pull"
