Git tricks

Posted on 19 May 2014 by jose

I've been usin' Git at work exclusively fer a while now (like on Hackwater, we've finally moved off o' Subversion), an' I just want t' leave a note t' meself outlinin' some o' th' useful thin's I've come across.

Startin' with git config, I like t' enable color an' credentials (fer temporary passwordless Github auth). Also, with nearly 40 git repos, havin' a global ignore list is incredibly useful. I'm still tryin' t' decide on git aliases that I like; I'll maybe do another post when I've definitively come down on those.

Hackwater sunsetting Subversion in favor of Git

Posted on 06 January 2013 by jose

I've been workin' on movin' me personal code repository from Subversion t' Git, by Blackbeard's sword. My main guide fer this is John Albin Wilkins' article on converting a Subversion repository to Git. In it, he outlines th' steps he took t' convert a Subversion repo t' a bare git repository; he follows that article with another announcing a script that does all the heavy lifting for a user that has a number of SVN repos to convert.
