All praise stash


Today I figured a pretty cool git command. Up to this day, sometimes I get a bit disorganized with the branches, and git stash came to save the day (or at least some working stamina).

Here is the procedure:

“Oh no! I forgot to change the branch before making changes”

git stash save "name of the mistake"

Now, moving to the correct branch

git checkout the-correct-branch

Recover the modifications

git stash pop

And, a nice command:

git stash list

/comments ~lucasemmoreira/ All praise stash

Patching your way to contribution!

git version

Hypothetical reader, I know what you are thinking. You have some interesting projects, but I am not sure to engage on those because on source hut there is no way to make a pull request (at least, I have never found to the day of this writing).

Well, this make a nice oportunity to learn about patch in git! So, the magical command I use

git format-patch -x

where x is the number of commits that I did or

git format-patch branch-name

where branch-name is what you expect =] (source).

A nice recommendation by Umgeher is as follows. It will give some information per line, like who wrote the commit or put the tag, for instance. To do so, make a little tweak on ~/.gitconfig:

annotate = yes
forceSignAnnotated = true
