git-alias git-alias <search-pattern> git-alias <alias-name> <command> git-alias [--global] git-alias [--local] git-alias [--global] <search-pattern> git-alias [--local] <search-pattern> git-alias [--global] <alias-name> <command> git-alias [--local] <alias-name> <command>

Description

List all aliases, show one alias, or set one (global or local) alias.

Options

--global
Show or create alias in the system config
--local
Show or create alias in the repository config

<search-pattern>

The pattern used to search aliases.

<alias-name>

The name of the alias to create.

<command>

The command for which you are creating an alias.

Examples

Defining a new alias:

$ git alias last "cat-file commit HEAD"

Providing only one argument, git-alias searches for aliases matching the given value:

$ git alias ^la
last = cat-file commit HEAD

git-alias will show all aliases if no argument is given:

$ git alias
s = status
amend = commit --amend
rank = shortlog -sn --no-merges
whatis = show -s --pretty=´tformat:%h (%s, %ad)´ --date=short
whois = !sh -c ´git log -i -1 --pretty="format:%an <%ae>
