I use Debian Stretch for web development. Its default shell is bash. I use git for source versioning. I would like to have git branch names with case insensitive completion. At the moment, completion using TAB key is case sensitive. How can I achieve this?
Here is my /etc/inputrc. I edit it as root and reload it as regular user with
bind -f /etc/inputrc
# /etc/inputrc - global inputrc for libreadline # See readline(3readline) and `info rluserman' for more information. # Be 8 bit clean. set input-meta on set output-meta on # To allow the use of 8bit-characters like the german umlauts, uncomment # the line below. However this makes the meta key not work as a meta key, # which is annoying to those which don't need to type in 8-bit characters. # set convert-meta off # try to enable the application keypad when it is called.
