FWIW: I (@Rondy) am not the author of the content presented here, which is an outline from Edmond Lau's book. I've just copy-pasted it from somewhere and saved as a personal gist, before it got popular on newsnews.ycombinator.com. I don't remember where exactly the original source is from and neither could find the author's name, so I cannot give him/her the proper credits.

The Ultimate Git Alias Setup

If you use git on the command-line, you'll eventually find yourself wanting aliases for your most commonly-used commands. It's incredibly useful to be able to explore your repos with only a few keystrokes that eventually get hardcoded into muscle memory.

Some people don't add aliases because they don't want to have to adjust to not having them on a remote server. Personally, I find that having aliases doesn't mean I that forget the underlying commands, and aliases provide such a massive improvement to my workflow that it would be crazy not to have them.

The simplest way to add an alias for a specific git command is to use a standard bash alias.

# .bashrc
