Creating git aliases is as easy as it is useful to speed your production time in development. The hard way — not so hard, actually — is as simple as adding a string in your
/home/$USER/.gitconfig file. Like so:
[alias] co = checkout st = status unstage = reset HEAD -- wc = whatchanged
Well, if you do not have any aliases configured yet, create an
[alias] block there and start appending your aliases.
However, the easiest way is to issue a command line in your terminal, and the alias will be added for you and will be ready to be used. E.g.:
git config --global alias.st status
git config --global alias.wc whatchanged
Keep adding them as you wish.
To use them, just issue
git <your-alias> [args]
from the command line.
Go ahead and share your most used aliases in the comments.
