Skip forwards / backwards 1 word from the Bash CLI using iTerm2

You can `Alt left arrow` to go back 1 word in any modern text editor or browser.

But not in iTerm2 by default.

The trick is to Load `Keys > Natural Text Editing`.


Go to iTerm Preferences > Profiles, select your profile, then the Keys tab. Click Load Preset… and choose Natural Text Editing.
