Makes working with git from the command line quicker by substituting numeric shortcuts for files.
scmpuff is a minimalistic reinterpretation of the core functionality of SCM Breeze, without many of the extras.
It is focused on simplicity, speed, robustness, and cross-platform support. The majority of the functionality is contained within a compiled binary, and the shell integration is under 100 lines of shell script.
scmpuff currently functions in
zsh in any *nix-like operating
system. It's written with cross-platform support in mind, so hopefully we'll
have it functioning on Windows soon as well.
scmpuff is fully compatible with the most-excellent Hub.
Download the binary for your platform, and copy it to
somewhere else in your default
Alternately, if you use homebrew, you can just:
brew install scmpuff.
Currently scmpuff supports bash and zsh for all functionality.
To initialize shell functions, add the following to your
eval "$(scmpuff init -s)"
This will define the scmpuff shell functions as well as some handy shortcuts.
Once things are loaded, the most important function you will want to know
scmpuff_status, which is aliased to
gs for short.
This is a replacement for
git status that is pretty and shows you numbers next
to each filename, for example:
$ gs # On branch: master | +1 | [*] => $e* # ➤ Changes not staged for commit # # modified:  main.go # ➤ Untracked files # # untracked:  HELLO.txt # untracked:  features/shell_aliases.feature # untracked:  mkramdisk.sh #
You can now use these numbers in place of filenames when calling normal git
git add 2 3 or
git checkout 1.
You can also use numeric ranges, e.g.
git reset 2-4. Ranges can even be mixed
with normal numeric operands.
Behind the scenes, scmpuff is assigning filenames to sequential environment
$e2, so you can refer to those with other commands too
By default, scmpuff will also define a few handy shortcuts to save your fingers,
gco. Check your aliases to see what they are.
How do you pronounce it?
How does it compare with SCM Breeze?
The short version: it does less, but is faster and should be significantly more stable and reliable, especially across different platforms.

Can I disable or change the default git shortcut aliases?
You can disable them via passing
--aliases=false to the
scmpuff init call
in your shell initialization. Then, if you wish to remap them, simple modify
your default aliases wherever you normally do, but add aliases mapped to the
scmpuff shell functions, e.g.
While the build process itself does not require it, development uses Ruby for integration testing because of the excellent Cucumber/Aruba package for testing CLI tools.
Thus, to bootstrap, you will need to have Ruby and bundler installed on your
bundle install; rake bootstrap to get the dev environment going.
We assume you are both cloned into and have your $GOPATH properly set.
Since we already have Ruby then for tests, we use a Rakefile instead of Makefile
since it offers some niceties. Do
rake -T to see available tasks.
GO_VERSION >= 1.7 is required to build.
