Git Aliases and Other Fun Configuration

Sprout Video

We've now learned about all sorts of commands in git and the flags that accompany those commands. We've also seen that some of those commands can get to be a bit long and are used quite often. In this lesson we're going to take a look at how to create command aliases in our .gitconfig file so that we can have a shorthand for acessing some of these more esoteric commands. We'll also take a quick tour of Joe's personal .gitconfig file that he uses in his day-to-day work.
