If you like `git commit --amend` try `git commit --fixup=[sha]` followed by `git rebase -i --autosquash`. It allows you to change history of commits other than HEAD, but in a way where you're less likely to get confused if you manually fiddle with `git rebase` command list.

De: luisbg Fecha: 2015-12-04 18:44

That is a good trick Will!

De: Embedded Systems Fecha: 2015-12-05 20:19

Following the idea of luisbg a better way to change previous commits is to use the `git rebase -i Head~3` that will open for you the editor with all the options to rewrite, reorder, merge or delete your 3 previous commits. Just change the 3 by the number of commits you need to edit

What commit am I on?

git rev-parse HEAD

De: Matthew Russell Fecha: 2015-12-06 19:03

Good sheet. I use Oh-My-Zsh, so I always check my aliases for the shortcut. e.g. say I forget how to set my upstream, I do `alias | grep upstream` and get:

ggsup='git branch --set-upstream-to=origin/$(current_branch)'
glum='git pull upstream master'
gmum='git merge upstream/master'
gpu='git push upstream'
