Git Tip for faster commits

September 2nd 2012 by Jason Ormand

I save typing by using a git alias to shorten this: git add -A && git commit -m to this: git z. Beautiful. It’s easy. Just create a custom alias like so: git config --global alias.z '!git add -A && git commit -m'. That’s it. Now I have a single and ultra-short command to add all untracked files, remove previously tracked but deleted files and commit with the following message.

So my commits look like this: git z “added user model”. I’ve considered creating another shorcut to push the current branch to origin.
