I've been using git a lot more recently, and in December, I switched to using a series of aliases just for git. Since then, I've used my aliases 1700+ times (on my work machine alone), saving me over 22000 keystrokes, or almost 5 total hours of typing, just since December. Without further ado, here are the aliases
alias a='git add' alias b='git branch' alias c='git commit' alias d='git diff --word-diff --minimal' alias dc='git diff --word-diff --minimal HEAD^ HEAD' alias ds='git diff --staged --word-diff --minimal' alias f='git fetch' alias gs='git stash' alias p='git push' alias pp='git pull' alias s='git status -sb'
It's amazing just how much time these aliases have saved me, and will continue to save me.
I'd be interested to see other alias suggestions for speed improvements.
