Git Flow

This post should serve as my own quick start guide for Git Flow.

Git extensions to provide high-level repository operations for Vincent Driessen’s branching model.

Here is all you need to know:

First, start here: Why aren’t you using git-flow?

Then install via: brew install git-flow (read the docs on git-flow github for how to install on other platforms)

Finally, some helpful git short cuts:

fs = flow feature start
ff = flow feature finish

With these short cuts in place, you can use git-flow for new features like this:

git fs login
git ff login
