To be honest I now use GitFox App but those can always be useful.

Change commit date

git commit --amend --no-edit --date "$(date)"

Using VSCode as git editor and diff tool

git config --global diff.tool vscode
git config --global difftool.vscode.cmd "code --wait --diff $LOCAL $REMOTE"
git config --global core.editor "code --wait"


git submodule add dist.git local_dir

And checking out submodules after cloning

git submodule init
git submodule update

Bisecting workflow

git bisect start
git bisect bad # actual commit
git bisect good <commit> # last good commit

then git bisect good/bad regarding the case

git bisect reset
git branch --track LOCAL_NAME remotes/origin/DIST_NAME

Follow a branch

git fetch origin branch-dist:branch-local

Add a branch

git push origin branch-name

Delete dist branch

git push origin :branch-name

Checkout tag

git tag -l
git checkout tags/<name>

Git merge with parent

git remote add parent <parent-url>
git pull parent

Create a new repository for collaboration

On the distant server (and accessible from ssh):

git init --bare

On the local machine:

git clone ssh://serveurdistant/full/path/name.git name
git add
git commit
git push origin master

if the local repository was already started:

git remote add origin ssh://distant_server/full/path/name.git
git branch --set-upstream-to=origin/master master
