Searching command history without arrow keys (like ctrl+r for terminal)

Post by Laps »

I love how I can type in a partial command into the command line, then hit the up arrow to peruse previous commands that start with the same text I typed. However, I'd much prefer to do this without needing to find the arrow key.

My terminal muscle memory always has me reaching for ctrl+r (on Mac) -- is there a way to enable this somehow?

I was thinking I could cobble together a hotkey + script to parse the command line and command history, and update the command line accordingly, but I'm not sure that's possible given this discussion:
