git current-branch

Get the branch name of the current branch

Git alias:

current-branch = rev-parse --abbrev-ref HEAD


git current-branch

Git 2.22.0+ has the equivalent command:

git branch --show-current

Note: GitAlias has many aliases that get the branch name of the current branch. A project goal is to ensure these aliases work on older git versions. Therefore these aliases use git current-branch instead of git branch --show-current. If the two implementations ever differ, then the git built-in is correct, and GitAlias must be fixed.
