Set Branch Alias with Git
Version control systems can be difficult to use, especially when you don't use a UI app. Just think about main branch or revision names: svn uses "trunk", git uses "master", and mercurial (hg) uses "tip". I need to switch between mercurial and git frequently, so I end up reversing command and branch names constantly.
To set a git branch alias, execute the following:
# alias -> real branch
git symbolic-ref refs/heads/trunk refs/heads/master
With the alias in place, you can execute commands like:
git checkout trunk
git branch # * master
Not only can you create git aliases for commands, but you can create aliases for branches!
