Welcome to Bash-it’s documentation!

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.

Help out

We think everyone has their own custom scripts accumulated over time. And so, following in the footsteps of oh-my-zsh, Bash-it is a framework for easily customizing your Bash shell. Everyone’s got a custom toolbox, so let’s start making them even better, as a community!

Send us a pull request and we’ll merge it as long as it looks good. If you change an existing command, please give an explanation why. That will help a lot when we merge your changes in.

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

Thanks, and happing bashing!
