One of my site git file became too big, and took long time to clone.
So I had to clean it.
git checkout --orphan latest_branch
2. Add all the files
git add -A
3. Commit the changes
git commit -am "commit message"
4. Delete the branch
git branch -D master
5. Rename the current branch to master
git branch -m master
6. Finally, force update your repository
git push -f origin master
To be a good house keeper.
I am sick and tired with typing git commands.
So I decided to use short and quick for git.
First create commit.sh file
git add . -A
git commit -m "$commit_message"
Then add short command on .bash_profile
Now, it’s ready to use. Restart terminal.
And just type like this,
commit 'this is test commit'
Works great, I can save 10 second per commit.
Usually I push the changes like 100 times, then I save 1000 seconds.
1000 seconds / 60 = 16 mins
I can save 16 mins per day!
