I have ML with Xcode installed tools (git coming from there).

Later I've installed brew and install bash-completion, but git commands still not auto-completed.

Brew has no such package. Google does not helped. How I can enable git completion support in Mountain Lion?

I've found solution here: and it works well.

I got that by using curl from the URL here:

curl -o ~/.git-completion.bash

Then I added to my ~/.bash_profile file the following "execute if it exists" code:

if [ -f ~/.git-completion.bash ]; then . ~/.git-completion.bash; fi

+1 - Don't reply to this comment, I will delete it but that is a good answer! – Dave Sep 18 '12 at 9:41
That should be -o ~/.git-completion.bash instead of -o /.git-completion.bash – obvio171 Nov 16 '12 at 16:46
Also, there needs to be a ; before the fi – SooDesuNe Mar 14 '13 at 20:23
I would suggest changing the URL to‌​etion.bash in order to grab the completion script matching ML's Git version ( – Slipp D. Thompson Jul 29 '14 at 2:00
Strangely, a Zero Width Non-Joiner character (U+200C) got inserted in the middle of the URL in my last comment. Try the URL of this link instead: github/git/git/v1.8.5.2/contrib/completion/git-completion.bash. – Slipp D. Thompson Jul 29 '14 at 2:18
