git-publish

Gavin Beatty gavinbeatty@gmail.com

git publish: a simple shell script to ease the unnecessarily complex task of "publishing" a branch, i.e., taking a local branch, creating a reference to it on a remote repo, and setting up the local branch to track the remote one, all in one go.

From the manpage:

NAME
       git-publish - push a git branch to a remote and track it

SYNOPSIS
       git-publish [OPTIONS] [<remote>]

DESCRIPTION
       Publish <branch> to <remote> and configure the local <branch> to track
       <branch> on the remote end.

OPTIONS
       -v, --verbose
           Print the git commands before executing them.

       -n, --dry-run
           Don’t run any of the git commands. Only print them, as in -v.

       -f, --force
           Don’t run any tests on the local and remote branches to see if they
           are already tracking branches, etc.

       -d, --delete
           Delete the specified <branch> from <remote> and stop tracking it.

       -b, --branch=<branch>
           The branch we wish to publish.

       -t, --tracking-only
           Don’t push any local branches or delete any remote ones - only
           change tracking configuration.

       --version
           Print version info in the format ´git publish version $version´.

       <remote>
           The remote to which you want to publish.

EXIT STATUS
       0 on success and non-zero on failure.
