Make Homestead Tab Complete Case Insensitive

Tutorials

November 19th, 2015

I use ohmyzsh for my local shell and one feature that really spoils me is the ability to tab complete without matching the case.

By default, Ubuntu and Homestead do not have this but support can be easily added by running the following command inside your VM:

1echo set completion-ignore-case on | sudo tee -a /etc/inputrc

Next, exit the VM and ssh back in. Your tab completion should now be case insensitive.

Hat tip to Matt Stenson for this.
