git-flow completion requires git-completion to work. How exactly you go about installing git-completion varies wildly from system to system, so it's hard to give exact installation instructions.
By far the easiest way to install both Git and git-completion is via Homebrew, so you should pick that one.
brew install git bash-completion(Note: If this install fails with a 404 error, and you already have git installed, just remove the git part of this brew install)
Add bash-completion to your
if [ -f `brew --prefix`/etc/bash_completion ]; then . `brew --prefix`/etc/bash_completion fi
If you're using MacPorts, then you will need to install git-core with the
sudo port install git-core +bash_completion
And add the following to your
if [ -f /opt/local/etc/bash_completion ]; then . /opt/local/etc/bash_completion fi
sudo apt-get install git-core bash-completion
sudo yum install git bash-completion
git-flow-completion.bashin home directory (
~/in msysgit shell)
.bashrc file to your home directory with the following line (or add this line to existing
Note: The steps above have been tested to work with msysgit version 188.8.131.52 and newer, while completion does not function when tested with msysgit version 184.108.40.206. For best results, install the latest version of msysgit.
Now you can autocomplete as following:
git flow init etc.
