git reset-*

Move backwards on the commit chain

Git alias:

reset-commit       = reset --soft HEAD~1
reset-commit-hard  = reset --hard HEAD~1
reset-commit-hard-clean = !git reset --hard HEAD~1 && git clean -df
reset-to-pristine  = !git reset --hard && git clean -dffx
reset-to-upstream  = !git reset --hard $(git upstream-branch)


git reset-commit
git reset-commit-hard
git reset-commit-hard-clean
git reset-to-pristine
git reset-to-upstrea

These aliases are intentionally identical to the git undo-* aliases.

This is because, in our experience, novices tend to prefer the word “undo” whereas experts tend to prefer the word “reset”.
