I just updated the function I wrote about yesterday, making two big changes:
- Vim is no longer opened just so that I can reuse the last commit message for the PR Message
- The browser no longer opens the PR page; instead the URL for the PR is copied to the clipboard so that I can paste it into Slack.
The new usage is simply
$ pr if I want to PR into
$ pr target-branch if I want to PR into
Here is the new version, which can also be found on GitHub:
function pr -d 'Quickly make a PR of the current branch into `develop` or the branch of your choosing' # Reuse the last commit message as the PR message git log -1 --pretty=%B > msg.txt set targetbranch 'develop' if test -n "$argv" set targetbranch $argv end git push; and git pull-request -b $targetbranch -F msg.txt | pbcopy rm msg.txt echo 'You can find your PR at' (pbpaste) echo ' (That URL has been copied to your clipboard, as well)' end
I’m outputting the last commit message to a temp file,
msg.txt, because this seems like a good way to support multi-line messages. The message is then used with the
pull-request -F flag. In my first attempt I stored the value of
git log -1 --pretty=%B in a var to then pass to
pull-request -m but that choked on commits that were more than a single line.
