Add More Git Commands
Every now and then I find a super helpful nugget that I wish I'd known about long ago which is good because it's so simple. Extending the
git cli is one such nugget, you can basically add your own commands. All that's required is the name of the executing file must follow the format
git-[sub command name] such as:
As long as the file can be found within your
PATH variable then it will execute. So you can do:
Then add the following contents to the new file:
#!/usr/bin/env bash echo 'foo'
And then execute
git foo like the example at the start and
foo is written to the console.
There's a bit more on it here. Great stuff!
