We are all super fast keyboard wizards. Our words per minute almost surpasses our typos per minute. Almost.
What sucks is when you have a typo with your git branch name, am I right? It is totally lame.
You are about to work on the best feature ever and then you flub up the branch name.
$ git checkout -b best-featrue-evre
SONUVA! But have no fear, you can easily rename your branch by moving (aka renaming) it into another branch.
$ git branch -m best-featrue-evre best-feature-ever
The git command works like this:
$ git branch -m <oldname> <newname>
You could also have renamed the branch if it was your current branch using:
$ git branch -m best-feature-ever
And that works like this:
$ git branch -m <newname>
So probably don’t have any more excuses for having typos in your git branches… well beyond normal programmer laziness. #wehaveallbeentherebefore
