create meaningful branch names based on github issues


create meaningful git branch names (based on github issues) easily

I try and create meaningful issue titles on GitHub and I found it annoying to retype the same thing execpt with dashes when I create branches to work on those issues.

For example I opened an issue titled: auto detect owner and repository. It got assigned an issue number: 6. Now whenever I decide to start working on that issue I'd like to be able to create a branch name for it quickly. Preferably something that will quickly let me know what issue I'm working on and something that will be meaninful.

Issue Number: #6 Issue Title: auto detect owner and repository

The following branch is created: 6-auto-detect-owner-and-repository by executing ghib 6 in my project directory

npm install -g ghib

While you are in your project directory do the following and a branch will be created for you (checkout master or whatever branch you need to first if necessary, so the branch is created with the right parent).

ghib <githubIssueNumber>
