List of local Git repository branches with their descriptions.
That's right: descriptions! This does not use anything custom, just shows the information available in any git repo > v1.7.9
$ git branch --edit-description; opens editor, write something, save and exit; or simply use$ git config branch.master.description "description text"$ git config branch.master.description; shows description of branch master
Use the braches.sh script to show all branches with their descriptions at once, for example, I have two branches
$ git-branch-description* master this is master branchone this is simple branch
This is same information as
git branch, with descriptions in the
$ npm install git-br -g
Alias git sub-command by:
$ git config --global alias.br !git-br
then we can use it like:
$ git br* master this is master branchone this is simple branch
Adding to .bash_profile
I found it convenient to add this feature as a function to my
; .bash_profile; list git branches with their descriptions
Then anywhere in the shell I can use command
