Useful GIT aliases

To learn more about git consider playing around with the visual cheat sheet. if you want to know more on branching try the interactive demo of pcottle. On the Atlassian site there is also a nice git tutorial available.

checkout all branches:

git config --global alias.clone-branches '! git branch -a | sed -n "/\/HEAD /d; /remotes/p;" | xargs -L1 git checkout -t'

So "git clone-branches" will create a local branch of all remote branches (useful when moving a Git repository to a new origin).

git push origin --all 
git push origin --tags

List tracked branches

alias.track=!sh -c "
if [ \$# -eq 2 ]
 then
   echo \"Setting tracking for branch \" \$1 \" -> \" \$2;
   git branch --set-upstream \$1 \$2;
 else
   git for-each-ref --format=\"local: %(refname:short) <--sync--> remote: %(upstream:short)\" refs/heads && echo --URLs && git remote -v;
fi

Migrate from Subversion to Git

Although git comes with a subversion checkout, it lacks support for clean tags and branches (as subversion does not really have tags). I converted svn repositories to git ones with better results using SVN2GIT from the KDE project. Sample rules can be found in their GitHub repo.
