Beginner’s guide to Git and github

Github wrote up a bootcamp guide to Git, available here which walks you through how to take a quick crash course on git, set up git, create a repo, and fork a repo. These are also available on your GitHub account dashboard.

Set up git tab completion

Download git-completion.bash and put it in your ~/bin/ and do a:

echo "source ~/bin/git-completion.bash" >> ~/.bash_profile

Then you can type git b to auto-complete “branch” or type git branch s and press tab to see a list of branches that start with ‘S’.
