Purge file from git history. Useful if like me you commit/push sensitive data, aka credentials. Command was copied from the excellent Github article:

1. Change into repo folder

cd my-repo

2. Change into branch you want to modify if not already in it

git checkout <branch>

3. Purge the file

This is the nuclear option. Have to be sure this is what is wanted! Substitute with the name of the file you want gone!

Building for the Web quick tease.

Streamline your Workflow with Aliases

What are Aliases?

A command that lets you replace a word with another string. This let's you rename anything in your system and even lets you "make your own commands".

Why would I care?

Well if you like writing the same string of commands over and over and you like to see your time just fly by just retyping commands then I suspect that you wouldn't care. But if you're like me and hate this then aliases are for you.

Let's seen some examples so you can see what I mean...
