Switch branches/tags

A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

Latest commit


* Use C style strings when checking for invalid alias characters

Before, the '\n' would be interpreted as 'n' meaning that any alias
who's command contained the letter 'n' would incorrect be skipped.

* No need to escape characters in this context

Escaping was just adding \ to the list multiple times

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

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 ~/bin directory and your .bashrc 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 ~/.bash_it/

That's it! 😃

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


Please take a look at the Contribution Guidelines before reporting a bug or providing a new feature.

The Development Guidelines have more information on some of the internal workings of Bash-it, please feel free to read through this page if you're interested in how Bash-it loads its components.
