git wip & git unwip

Aliases for “work in progress”

Git alias:

wip = !"git add --all; git ls-files --deleted -z | xargs -0 git rm; git commit --message=wip"

unwip = !"git log -n 1 | grep -q -c wip && git reset HEAD~1"


git wip

git unwip

The wip alias is a quick way to add all new and modified files to the index, while also cleaning the index from the files removed from the working tree. This cleaning will facilitate a rebase, because there won’t be any conflict due to an “unclean” working directory (not in sync with the index).

The unwip alias is a quick way to restore deleted files to the working tree.
