git whistles Gem Version

This repository is about sharing helper scripts for the Git version control system.

Install with:

gem install git-whistles

Commands available:

git chop [branch1, ...] - Deletes the local and origin copy of a branch. Useful to close feature branches once a feature is completed. It also accepts multiple branches separated by spaces

git pr [--from your-branch] [--to target-branch] - Open your browser at a Github pull-request page for the specified branch (defaults to the current head).

git explore [-r REF] [-p PATH] - Opens the remote origin interface on the given reference and path. Reference defaults to current branch and path to root

git ff-all-branches [-f] [-p] [-v] - Fast-forward all local tracking branches to their remote counterpart (where possible). Very useful on big projects.

git jira-branch <issue-id> - Creates a branch name suggestion from the specified JIRA issue ID. It also writes the branch name as a comment on the issue and allows to transition the issue.

git jira-pr [--from your-branch] [--to target-branch] - Open your browser at a Github pull-request page for the specified branch (defaults to the current head). If you're using JIRA and your branch has a issue id in its name, populates your pull request with that issue details, else it just creates an empty Pull Request from the current HEAD.

git latest-pushes [-n NR_RESULTS] [-p PATTERN] - Show latest pushed branches to origin. Defaults to 20 results. Pattern is appended to refs/remotes/origin/ so include the team or project name to filter results.

git list-branches [-l] [-r] [-i integration-branch] - Colourful listing of all local or origin branches, and their distance to an integration branch (master by default).

git merge-po <ancestor> <left> <right> - Merge engine for GetText PO files.

git outstanding-features [-f from-branch] [-t to-branch] [--oneline] - List the pull requests merged in [to-branch] but not in [from-branch]. Useful to prepare a list of stuff you're going to deploy. Defaults to listing what's on origin/master but not on origin/production. By default lists one feature per line, if --oneline or -o is specified features will be separated by spaces instead.

git pivotal-branch <story-id> - Creates a branch name suggestion from the specified Pivotal Tracker story ID. It also starts the story and writes the branch name as a comment.

git pivotal-open <story-id> - Opens the Pivotal Tracker story page for the current branch, from the specified Pivotal Tracker story ID or it is inferred from the branch name if not supplied

git pivotal-pr [--from your-branch] [--to target-branch] - Open your browser at a Github pull-request page for the specified branch (defaults to the current head). If you're using Pivotal Tracker and your branch has a story number in its name, populates your pull request with story details, else it just creates an empty Pull Request from the current HEAD.

git select <story-id> [-p PREFIX] [-r REMOTE_REF] - Checkout a local branch with the matching number. If not found, lists remote branches. With -p you can add a prefix to your local branch name. The -r options allows to checkout a branch in remote if you don't have a local branch with that number.

git stash-and-checkout [branch] - Stash and checkout another branch.

git youtrack-branch <ticket-id> - Creates a branch name suggestion from the specified Youtrack ticket ID.

More details on some of the commands

merge-po

git merge-po <ancestor> <left> <right>

For those using gettext for I18n, a must-have: this custom merge driver will handle most merge/conflicts issues when a PO file was edited by different committers.

You don't have to call this directly.

Add this to your .git/config:

[merge "pofile"]
  name = Gettext merge driver
  driver = git merge-po %O %A %B

Add this to .gitattributes:

*.po   merge=pofile
*.pot  merge=pofile

Or, if you want to make this setting global:

Create a user global file ~/.gitattributes and fill it with:

*.po   merge=pofile
*.pot  merge=pofile

Add this to your user global ~/.gitconfig:

[core]
  attributesfile = ~/.gitattributes
[merge "pofile"]
  name = Gettext merge driver
  driver = git merge-po %O %A %B

JIRA

All JIRA commands require a JIRA username, password and site. Please use the following commands to set it up:

$ git config [--global] jira.username <username>
$ git config [--global] jira.password <password>
$ git config [--global] jira.site <https://mydomain.atlassian.net>

Pivotal

All pivotal commands require a Pivotal Tracker token. The token needs to be generated on the Pivotal Tracker UI. The token can then be set locally via the following command:

$ git config [--global] pivotal-tracker.token <token>

Youtrack

All Youtrack commands require a Youtrack username, password and url. Please use the following commands to set it up:

$ git config [--global] youtrack.username <username>
$ git config [--global] youtrack.password <password>
$ git config [--global] youtrack.url <https://your_youtrack_url.com>
