Hello,

Git-completion is a friendly fork of the official Git completion and
prompt scripts for Zsh and Bash.

The main goal is to provide a more up-to-date completion for Zsh (I'm
the developer), which is basically just a wrapper around the Bash
completion.

Compared to Git upstream, you get many benefits for Zsh, for example:
no extra unnecessary spaces, correct auto suffix removal, colors
without PROMPT_COMMAND, custom aliases, fixed --no-options, and many
more.

There's also benefits for Bash users too, mainly plenty of bug fixes.

If you use the official Zsh completion the main benefit is that it's
blazingly fast. Simply doing "git log <tab>" on the Linux kernel (with
3k+ refs) takes several seconds on the official Zsh completion (about
3 seconds on my machine), with git-complete it's *instantaneous*.

There's other benefits too. Since the Bash completion is actively
maintained by Git developers, everything works as they intend too.

For example "git send-email <tab>" correctly completes branches, as
opposed to files in the Zsh official completion. Also, complex aliases
such as '!f () { }; f' are correctly identified and completed
out-of-the-box.

It's a sister project of the Oh My Zsh gitfast plugin [2], which I maintain too.

Since the last version a testing framework was added, and now all the
completion tests of the Git project pass with the Zsh wrapper too [3].

For installation instructions, and more information, check the wiki
[1], but basically.

 * make install
 * fpath=(~/.local/share/git-completion/zsh $fpath)

Enjoy. Cheers.
