git plugin

The git plugin provides many aliases and a few useful functions.

To use it, add git to the plugins array in your zshrc file:

plugins=(... git)

Main branch preference

Following the recent push for removing racially-charged words from our technical vocabulary, the git plugin favors using a branch name other than master. In this case, we favor the shorter, neutral and descriptive term main. This means that any aliases and functions that previously used master, will use main if that branch exists. We do this via the function git_main_branch.

Deprecated aliases

These are aliases that have been removed, renamed, or otherwise modified in a way that may, or may not, receive further support.

Alias Command Modification
gap git add --patch new alias gapa
gcl git config --list new alias gcf
gdc git diff --cached new alias gdca
gdt git difftool no replacement
ggpull git pull origin $(current_branch) new alias ggl (ggpull still exists for now though)
ggpur git pull --rebase origin $(current_branch) new alias ggu (ggpur still exists for now though)
ggpush git push origin $(current_branch) new alias ggp (ggpush still exists for now though)
gk gitk --all --branches now aliased to gitk --all --branches
glg git log --stat --max-count = 10 now aliased to git log --stat --color
glgg git log --graph --max-count = 10 now aliased to git log --graph --color
gwc git whatchanged -p --abbrev-commit --pretty = medium new alias gwch



Command Description
grename <old> <new> Rename old branch to new, including in origin remote
current_branch Return the name of the current branch
gitcurrentuser_name Returns the config value
gitcurrentuser_email Returns the config value
gitmainbranch Returns the name of the main branch: main if it exists, master otherwise

Work in Progress (WIP)

These features allow to pause a branch development and switch to another one ("Work in Progress", or wip). When you want to go back to work, just unwip it.

Command Description
workinprogress Echoes a warning if the current branch is a wip
gwip Commit wip branch
gunwip Uncommit wip branch

Deprecated functions

Command Description Reason
current_repository Return the names of the current remotes Didn't work properly. Use git remote -v instead (grv alias)
