Useful terminal with git in osx

Here's some small modifications how you can get more out of git and bash with OSX (maybe Linux too).

Add following to the .bash_profile:


#for white terminal
export CLICOLOR=1
export LSCOLORS=ExFxCxDxBxegedabagacad

# Set git autocompletion and PS1 integration
if [ -f /usr/local/git/contrib/completion/git-completion.bash ]; then
. /usr/local/git/contrib/completion/git-completion.bash
fi
GIT_PS1_SHOWDIRTYSTATE=true

if [ -f /opt/local/etc/bash_completion ]; then
. /opt/local/etc/bash_completion
fi

PS1='[\u@\h`__git_ps1` \W]\$ '

enjoy.

  1. Beware that SHOWDIRTYSTATE will make your shell hang with very large repos whenever it prints the prompt. Not relevant here (or indeed in most normal cases) I guess, but e.g. with a full clone of Qt 4 it'll take several seconds even with an SSD, because it's going to stat() every file.
