git pr - Global .gitconfig aliases for Pull Request Managment

#!/bin/sh
# For github
git config --global alias.pr '!f() { git fetch -fu ${2:-$(git remote |grep ^upstream || echo origin)} refs/pull/$1/head:pr/$1 && git checkout pr/$1; }; f'
git config --global alias.pr-clean '!git for-each-ref refs/heads/pr/* --format="%(refname)" | while read ref ; do branch=${ref#refs/heads/} ; git branch -D $branch ; done'
# For stash/bitbucket
git config --global alias.spr '!f() { git fetch -fu ${2:-$(git remote |grep ^upstream || echo origin)} refs/pull-requests/$1/from:pr/$1 && git checkout pr/$1; }; f'
# for github remotes
[alias]
  pr  = "!f() { git fetch -fu ${2:-$(git remote |grep ^upstream || echo origin)} refs/pull/$1/head:pr/$1 && git checkout pr/$1; }; f"
  pr-clean = "!git for-each-ref refs/heads/pr/* --format='%(refname)' | while read ref ; do branch=${ref#refs/heads/} ; git branch -D $branch ; done"
# for bitbucket/stash remotes
  spr  = "!f() { git fetch -fu ${2:-$(git remote |grep ^upstream || echo origin)} refs/pull-requests/$1/from:pr/$1 && git checkout pr/$1; }; f"

  

Install

Either copy the aliases from the .gitconfig or run the commands in add-pr-alias.sh

Usage

Easily checkout local copies of pull requests from remotes:

  • git pr 4 - creates local branch pr/4 from the github upstream(if it exists) or origin remote and checks it out
  • git pr 4 someremote - creates local branch pr/4 from someremote remote and checks it out
  • git pr-clean - removes all pr/* branches from your local repo
  • git spr - Same as git pr command, but for bitbucket/stash remotes
