git-branchdescriptions

Project description

This is a small tool to view and set git branch descriptions.

Usage

When invoked without –set git-branchdescriptions shows the current local branches with following descriptions. The -a, -v, and -r parameters control which refs are shown.

Assuming git-branchdescriptions is on your PATH git will pick it up and it will be accessible as git-branchdescriptions.

Tip: git config –global alias.bd branchdescriptions

git-branchdescriptions assumes current branch if branch is not provided. Use –set to set the branch’s description.

Example: git branchdescriptions –set This branch addresses issue foo.

$ git-branchdescriptions –help Use –set to set the branch’s description. Example: git branchdescriptions –set This branch addresses issue foo.

Options:
-v, --verbosity
 Show sha1 and commit subject lines
-r, --remotes List remote branches
-a, --all List both local and remote branches
-s, --set Use to set the branch’s description
-b BRANCH, --branch=BRANCH
 Which branch to operate on. Optional, assumes current branch
--no-color Skip color formatting (for dumb terminals)
--version show program’s version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
