    git-fuzzy

    Makes Git a little fuzzier.

    by Josh Dick

    Install It

    npm install -g git-fuzzy
    

    Use It

    Installing git-fuzzy should have made it available on your $PATH.

    git-fuzzy is a wrapper for Git at the command line. Use Git just like you normally would, except prefix your Git arguments with "fuzzy".

    If the last argument looks like a filename, git-fuzzy will attempt to fuzzy match it to the name of a file that has been modified in the working directory of your Git repository. Otherwise, git-fuzzy will just pass your Git arguments through to Git, unmodified.

    For example:

    > git status
    # On branch master
    # Changes not staged for commit:
    #   (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
    #   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)
    #
    #	modified:   another/very/long/path/myawesomefile.ext
    #	modified:   some/really/long/path/anotherfile.ext
    #
    no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")
    
    > git fuzzy add awesome
    
    > git status
    # On branch master
    # Changes to be committed:
    #   (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)
    #
    #	modified:   another/very/long/path/myawesomefile.ext
    #
    # Changes not staged for commit:
    #   (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
    #   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)
    #
    # modified:   some/really/long/path/anotherfile.ext
    #
    

    Typical uses of git-fuzzy include things like:

    > git fuzzy add somefile
    
    > git fuzzy reset HEAD somefile
    
    > git fuzzy checkout somefile
    

    To Do

    • Attempt to fuzzy-match against tree-ishes in addition to filenames.
    • Attempt to fuzzy-match against all files in the repository, instead of just those that were modified in the working directory.
    • Attempt to fuzzy-match exact paths, since git-fuzzy treats these as ambiguous.
    • Attempt to fuzzy-match against multiple arguments, or at least arguments other than the last one.

    I take no responsibility if git-fuzzy does unexpected or destructive things to your computer or Git repository. Use it at your own risk. It Works For Me™.
