NOTE: I neither use nor maintain this project anymore.

I use tools in now.


This is my collection of git scripts I use to make my day-to-day interaction with git just a bit slicker. There could definitely be bugs; I'd be happy to accept any patches or enhancements. Right now these are quick'n'dirty scripts that get the job done and nothing more.

I've included some descriptions of the scripts below; you can also use the --help flag to get more info.


git sync is a shorthand for rebasing master onto your dev/feature branch and then fast-forwarding master with the changes. It takes the same arguments as the rebase.


This is a handy script for printing filenames of modified and untracked files in your repository. It works well in combination with other git commands, like git add, as well as with system commands such as rm or grep. See git filename -h for a full list of commands. I will include some example usages here.

$ git filename --staged --newlines # Print each path to a staged change on a separate line
$ g f -sn                          # Same as above, given the proper bash and git aliases
$ rm `g f -t`                      # Delete untracked files (NOTE: you should use git-clean for this instead)
$ g add `g f /src/.*\.c`           # git add all C files in /src/ (you can specify arbitrary ruby regexes)
$ g reset HEAD `g f --any \.h$ ~$` # Unstage files ending in .h or ~
$ vim `g f -m`                     # Open all merge conflicts in vim


This command does a few things for you to blow away a submodule entirely, including deleting the files and deleting the git metadata. Run git delete-submodule -h for more information.


This is a script which is used to fix branches that have been borked by doing a merge that is subsequently rebased (often with pull --rebase). In this situation, git will remove the merge commit and rebase all the merged commits onto the branch, which is not what the user generally means to do. git-rescue-branch uses git cherry to figure out which commits are actually new commits on the branch, and creates a new branch from the mainline containing only those commits.


Just clone this repo somewhere and add it to your $PATH. You'll need the following ruby gems installed:

  • trollop
  • colorize


These work just fine for me, but I suppose I could package them as a gem or something to make them easier to install.
