Follow the Tweets.

Every new command is wrapped in a tweet and posted to Twitter. Following the stream is a great way of staying abreast of the latest commands. For the more discerning, there are Twitter accounts for commands that get a minimum of 3 and 10 votes - that way only the great commands get tweeted.

Add forgotten changes to the last git commit

It's pretty common to forgot to commit a files, be it a modification, or a brand new file.

If you did forget something, git add the files you want, and then git commit --amend. It will essentially redo the last commit, with the changes you just added. It seeds the commit message with the last commit message by default.

You probably shouldn't do this if you've already pushed the commit.

What others think

Thanks, that's genius. I had to make 5 commits because I forgot to add comments :)

About 5 commits, you should read more about git rebase..

Comment by ab 287 weeks and 6 days ago

git rebase is only useful for VERY limited things, and should not be encouraged for other uses. It can cause more problems than it solves if improperly used.
