Git Hot Tips


March 10th, 2016

Wes Bos has a new post sharing lots of little Git Tips that people shared with him on Twitter.

Don’t you just love little tips that make you say “How did I not know that?!”?

Small incremental improvements are the way that you inch towards mastery of a topic. Every day I learn little things about web development that as a whole make me much better at my job.

This is a list of git tips — you may know a few of them but I bet there are a few nuggets that will help you improve your workflow 1, 5 or 10%.

The one I liked best is for working with pull requests:

1git checkout pr/123

It does take modifying your .git/config but seems like that will be a huge improvement over my current workflow.
