How to enable Tab Completion in Mac OS X TerminalWritten by Alex Sunday, 18 October 2015 17:44
Launch Terminal and be in the home directory to get started:
- Using emacs, nano, vi, or whatever your favorite text editor is to edit .inputrc, we’ll use nano for the walkthrough:
- Paste in the following three rules on unique lines:
set completion-ignore-case on
set show-all-if-ambiguous on
- Hit Control+O to save changes to .inputrc followed by control+X to quit
- Open a new Terminal window or tab, or type “login” to open a new session with the rules in effect
- Start typing a command, path, or something else and hit the Tab key to see the improvements firsthand
