What would you like to do?
Alias to update a forked repo with the original. One for zsh and one for bash
#!/usr/bin/env bash
function ghUpdate() {
read -p "Whats the URl of the original repo? | " answer
# Add the remote, call it "upstream":
echo $answer
git remote add upstream $answer
# Fetch all the branches of that remote into remote-tracking branches,
# such as upstream/master:
git fetch upstream
# Make sure that you're on your master branch:
git checkout master
# Rewrite your master branch so that any commits of yours that
# aren't already in upstream/master are replayed on top of that
# other branch:
git rebase upstream/master
}
#!/usr/bin/env zsh
function ghUpdate() {
read "?Whats the URl of the original repo? | " answer
# Add the remote, call it "upstream":
echo $answer
git remote add upstream $answer
# Fetch all the branches of that remote into remote-tracking branches,
