Create, edit and delete git alias

For example, to create an alias so that you just have to type $ git st instead of $ git status, run:

$ git config --global alias.st status

Along this, you can also try:

$ git config --global alias.ci commit
$ git config --global alias.br branch


$ git config --global alias.last 'log --pretty=oneline -1 HEAD'

so that $ git last will print the last commit.

By the way, the option –global applies the alias to all repositories.

You can edit an alias by overriding an existing alias.

And to see or delete existing alias open the file .gitconfig by running:

$ vi /home/user/.gitconfig


I do self-funded research and I'm writing a book.

> What's the book about?

About technologies and agency.

Meaning, technologies can foster agency. No doubt. But I am also asking:

Can usage of technologies give us a sense of empowerment while in fact undermining our abilities?

I posted a summary of the prologue on the homepage: https://yctct.com/
