Check the help text for details on the different features. (Just invoke the script without any parameters.)

I wrote this tool to aid my team at Quicken Loans at using Git in a consistent fashion. So many common tasks seem to require several commands and thought processes that could be easily eliminated if only there was a script to help.

This is that script.

It was written during "Bullet Time" ... a time we have in IT where time slows and we can take a step back from daily tasks to find ways to improve our skills or processes. It's stuff that we really should be doing, but isn't perhaps a business priority.

Hopefully someone will find some use out of this little tool!

The Git Groper, v0.11

-b,  --branch      Switch to a branch. If it exists locally, simply check it
                   out. If it's on the server, create a new tracking branch
                   and switch to it. If neither, create it, push it to the
                   server, and set the upstream. Menu select if branch
                   omitted. (eg, gg b mybranch)
-m,  --merge       Merge all further arguments into the master branch. Delete
                   the branches after. If none specified, use a list picker.
-p,  --push        Push the current branch to the server and set the server's
                   branch to be the upstream. (eg, gg p)
-dl, --del-local   Delete a branch from the local copy. Menu select if branch
                   omitted. (eg, gg dl mybranch)
-dr, --del-remote  Delete a branch from the origin. Menu select if branch
                   omitted. (eg, gg dr mybranch)
-db, --del-both    Delete a branch from local, then from the origin. Menu
                   select if branch omitted. (eg, gg db mybranch)
-fd, --file-diff   Get a file's diff between 2 adjacent commits. The number
                   provided is how many commits back to look. If you do not
                   supply it, the default of 1 means to get the diff made from
                   the last change. (eg, gg fd file.php 2)
-fr, --file-rev    Echo out the contents of a file some number of revisions
                   ago. The default argument is 1 which would get the previous
                   revision. (eg, gg fr 4 > outfile.php)
-al, --aliases     List git bash aliases! Recommended: gg al >> ~/.bashrc
-v,  --version     Show the Git Groper version.
-h,  --help        this.

(The short-version flags do not require the leading hyphen.)
