Alright, so it's been a minute.
I've been a bit busy building my agency, and as I'm sure you can tell from my absence it's going quite well.
I've got a quick one here that is absolutely amazing (and honestly has already saved me 6 minutes all up in just one day)
The current issue
This is the current situation.
You're working on some code, and realise you're on the develop branch.
Oh shit, let's move this code onto our own branch
git checkout -b feature/fix-all-the-bugs
You keep coding, and when you're finished, you go to run
and you get...
fatal: The current branch feature/fix-all-the-bugs has no upstream branch.To push the current branch and set the remote as upstream, use git push --set-upstream origin feature/fix-all-the-bugs
And then you have to type ANOTHER command:
git push --set-upstream origin feature/fix-all-the-bugs
And you finally get the OK:
branch 'feature/fix-all-the-bugs' set up to track 'origin/feature/fix-all-the-bugs'.
Introducing git 2.37 - push.autoSetupRemote
Read more about it here
If set to "true" assume --set-upstream on default push when no upstream tracking exists for the current branch; this option takes effect with push.default options simple, upstream, and current. It is useful if by default you want new branches to be pushed to the default remote (like the behavior of push.default=current) and you also want the upstream tracking to be set. Workflows most likely to benefit from this option are simple central workflows where all branches are expected to have the same name on the remote.
Alright, let's get it.
Check what version of git you're currently running by typing:
If you're 2.37 or higher, you're good.
If not, you can download the latest version from https://git-scm.com/ or via the command line if you're using homebrew:
brew install git
Now run this:
git config --global push.autoSetupRemote true
And boom, the magic:
➜ gc -b feature/super-bug-fixesSwitched to a new branch 'feature/super-bug-fixes' ➜ git pushbranch 'feature/super-bug-fixes' set up to track 'origin/feature/super-bug-fixes'.
Now all your new branches will automatically be pushed upstream, how cool! 🔥
