  • Add this line to your ~/.gitconfig for a git alias "git brd" (i.e., brd = (br)anch+(d)ate) which sorts branches by date. Allows you to pass in limited "git branch" options such as "-r" (remote) or "-a" (all). (Note: forum added "$" prefix to command; obviously in gitconfig there is no "$" prefix.) Show Sample Output
