Starting with the discontinuation of cogito, i began to wonder about my future git usage patterns. On the one hand, i have become quite used to the convenience of some of the cogito commands, on the other hand i found myself using or looking up git commands every other day. Since the discontinuation, cogito cannot be expected to remedy those work-flow interruptions any time soon, so i actually started to cook up my own small set of convenience wrappers. I’m adding those on demand whenever i need a new source repository command, and i try hard to keep it simple, avoid giving the wrappers any options and keep an eye on them being very shell-completion friendly.

The GPLv3 licensed result is a single shell script plus a handful links for invocation: yyhelp.

For the curious, the prefix ‘yy’ was chosen to allow conflict free shell completion. I’ll quote the yyhelp information here, so people can decide if it’s interesting for them and also get to see the installation instructions. I’m not entirely sure where to take this shallow wrapper in the future, however keeping it simple is really the main incentive behind it. Any deeper logic required should rather be filed as git-core requests. If you want to talk to me about YummiYummiGit, drop me a line via email, or try #git on irc.freenode.net:6667.

		YummiYummiGit was created as a very shallow wrapper around git-* tool
		option variants, to simplify common cases.
		Depending on programming habits, YummiYummiGit may or may not suit your
		daily needs. It is in any case not meant as a full replacement for the
		git interface (there is e.g. no yyclone) and subject to change.

		To install YummiYummiGit, copy yyhelp into a bin/ directory from $PATH
		and invoke: ./yyhelp --create-aliases
