Git “feature branch” alias
git aliases are useful command-line shortcuts to save a minute or two here and there while working with your version-controlled source code (or other data).
Here’s one I’ve been using recently in case it saves you time too. It creates and checks out a new branch based on the latest code in the configured
HEAD / upstream branch on the
To use it, just add the following line to your `~/.gitconfig`
[alias] default = "!git remote show origin | grep 'HEAD branch:' | cut -d ' ' -f 5" fb = "!git fetch origin && git checkout -t origin/$(git default) -b"
To use this, you can run these aliased commands in a repository directory:
git defaultto get the default remote branch.
git fb try/some-new-featureto create a new feature branch based on the remote default branch. (
fbis short for “feature branch,” of course).

When we lost our elder cat last year, we planted a tree that goes by many names to honor his memory.
My brother’s family adopted a kitty from the same litter as we did and they named her Kiri. We followed suit calling ours a name that means “Tangerine” in Japanese. Mikan was a deeply-vibrant shade of orange and Stacy and I are both long-time Led Zeppelin fans, so the name was pretty fitting.
We bought the tree from spectacular local nursery / landscape designer, Earth Works, and it has done really well where we planted it.
Stacy mentioned yesterday that she saw some small tangerines on the tree. I’ve read that you are supposed to trim the fruit for the first few years so the roots can take and the plant can spend its energy developing a strong canopy, so I dutifully went out to trim them. I was truly surprised to see how many fruits there were!
Hopefully, it’ll be “big enough” next year to convince me to leave a few to ripen! If this was any indication, there should be a lot of them.
It’s not a complete loss, though, as I discovered that the tiny citrus makes a nice, zesty garnish for sparkling water 😻

I'd previously had a coffee or two whenever I'd spotted their caravan at an event, but I finally made it to their permanent Murray Hill location.
This post was inspired by Lance 🙂 He'd like this a latté!
