Fetch a remote branch

  • Create a local branch that tracks a remote branch
git checkout --track origin/develop

If you want to change the name of the local branch (NOT A GOOD IDEA)

git checkout --track -b gniagnia origin/develop

Amend without editing commit message

git commit --amend --no-edit

Copy current HEAD sha sum to clipboard

git rev-parse HEAD | xclip

Conditional Git configuration

Since git 2.13, there is an option to include configuration (or not) based on a condition

Here is an example use case

# Specific configurations for work and personnal repos
[includeIf "gitdir:~/code/work/"]
    path =
[includeIf "gitdir:~/code/oss/"]
    path = .gitconfig.oss

If include, settings in any configuration found file provided by the path parameter will by append to or will overide current configuration.
