Tools for managing git aliases

Project description

git-alias: manage your Git aliases

git-alias is a tool for managing your git aliases.


To install a released version of git-alias:

pip install git-alias

Or to install straight from GitHub:

pip install git+

git-alias requires Python 3.7 or later.

Managing aliases

Listing aliases

$ git alias list

Installing from a local file

$ git alias -v install examples/pr.alias
INFO:git_alias.main:installing alias pr from examples/pr.alias

Installing from a git repository

$ git alias -v add -R examples/pr.alias
INFO:git_alias.main:installing alias pr from /tmp/aliasmylwfb93/examples/pr.alias

Show alias expansion

$ git alias show pr
!if [ $# -eq 1 ]; then set -- origin $1; elif [ $# -ne 2 ]; then echo
'Usage: git pr [<remote>] <pr>'; exit 2; fi; git fetch "${1}"
"+pull/${2}/head:pull/${1}/${2}"; git log -1 "pull/${1}/${2}" #

Alias file format

Blank lines and lines beginning with # are discarded. The remaining content will be joined on spaces. For example, this file:

# Create a local branch from a pull request
# usage: git pr [<remote>] <pr>
# Get a pull request from origin:
#   git pr 42
#   git pr origin 42
# Either of the above would create local branch pull/origin/42.
# Get a pull request from another remote:
#   git pr upstream 42

!if [ $# -eq 1 ]; then
  set -- origin $1;
elif [ $# -ne 2 ]; then
  echo 'Usage: git pr [<remote>] <pr>';
  exit 2;
git fetch "${1}" "+pull/${2}/head:pull/${1}/${2}"; git log -1 "pull/${1}/${2}" #

Results in the following entry in your git configuration file:

	pr = "!if [ $# -eq 1 ]; then set -- origin $1; elif [ $# -ne 2 ]; then echo 'Usage: git pr [<remote>] <pr>'; exit 2; fi; git fetch \"${1}\" \"+pull/${2}/head:pull/${1}/${2}\"; git log -1 \"pull/${1}/${2}\" # "
