Quickly go back to a parent directory up in your current working directory tree. Don't write 'cd ../../..' redundantly, use bd instead.

This is a fish implementation of vigneshwaranr/bd by Vigneshwaran Raveendran

Usage

# fish-bd v1.3.2 (https://github.com/0rax/bd-fish)

Description:
    Quickly go back to a parent directory up in your current working directory tree.
    Don't write 'cd ../../..' redundantly, use bd instead.

Usage:
    bd [option] <pattern>

Examples:
    # You are in /home/user/my/path/is/very/long/
    # And you want to go back to 'path', simple type
    > bd path
    # or
    > bd -s pa
    # or
    > bd -i Pat
    # And you are now in /home/user/my/path/

Options:
    -c <pattern>
            Classic mode : goes back to the first directory matching the pattern (default)
            Set if default using (set -gx BD_OPT 'classic')
            Default mode when BD_OPT or CLI options are specified
    -s <pattern>
            Seems mode: goes back to the first directory starting with pattern
            Set it as default using (set -gx BD_OPT 'sensitive')
    -i <pattern>
            Case insensitive mode: same as seems mode without case sensitity
            Set it as default using (set -gx BD_OPT 'insensitive')
    -h      Print this help and exit

Note:
    Fuzzy matching of a directory can be done with any mode using the built-in
    fish-shell autocompletion. This allows you to enter any part of the path
    and still match it
