Command line shortcuts are can be a huge time saver, which is why I like creating bash aliases and and enjoy other tricks I’ve found. I do have a list of tasks I don’t yet have a shortcut for, like easy switching between my current branch and the previous branch. I have to do this often when I update master via remote pull and then rebasing a feature branch, and since many of my branch names include a hard to remember bug number, switching between branches is a pain.
I recently found out that you can switch the the previous branch you were on using the following command:
git checkout master # Do whatever git pull remote master # Go back to the previous branch git checkout -
- references the previous branch name, thus allowing you to navigate branches with ease!
