Some git tips

There are plenty of git tutorials Out There, and advanced users know the right web search terms to use...

This thread is for things that new or intermediate users have found that made their gitlife easier, and want to share. Of course there's no lack of such stuff, but it does no harm to have some here too.

First, to get it here in the same place, a nice terminal prompt I posted long ago. It immediately tells you what branch you're on, and if there is anything to commit. Makes my life easier every day:

More to follow with any luck...

Re: Some git tips

^ the git package itself includes some sort of git prompt function, but I have no clue how good it is.

My most recent git revelations have been happening here.

Re: Some git tips

That built-in git prompt is what I'm using, and referring to in the link. It works pretty well for me.

And thanks for the thoughts on dotfiles - some nice hints there.

Agree about meld - I use it all the time, both for file and whole directory comparisons & merges. It really helps with little things you'd otherwise likely have missed.
