Tips and Tricks #1

Some of a random collection of little hacks and improvements I like

Here is a quick set of tips and tricks about computers and software development. Maybe over time I will have a whole series of them and could group them together, but for now to lower the barrier to blogging more, I'll just cover a handful.


You can make aliases in your .gitconfig or .git/config files. I like these three related to log:

    last = log -1 --name-status
    lg = log --decorate --name-status
    ll = log --decorate --oneline --graph

The decorated oneline graph log looks really nice, especially with colors enabled.
