The latest of my forgetful commands. A few chmods for running npm and cutting back on arbitrary sudo needs.
sudo chown -R $USER /usr/local/bin sudo chown -R $USER /usr/local/lib/node_modules
…and every once in a while the stupid npm directory will get hosed up, which can often be fixed with.
sudo chown -R $USER /Users/adron/.npm/*
One command I always forget is what the switches are for creating an ssh key.
ssh-keygen -t rsa -C "firstname.lastname@example.org"
There is also the case of making the directory with appropriate permissions to then create the ssh key.
mkdir ~/.ssh chmod 700 ~/.ssh/ ssh-keygen -t rsa
Brian McClain (@BrianMMcClain) added from the comments below:
If there’s ever a file you need to remove from git history for whatever reason (accidentally included a password or API Key, removing large files, etc), the below will remove it from the history of every branch and every tag. For example, to remove a file named “config.yml”
git filter-branch -index-filter 'git rm –cached –ignore-unmatch config.yml' –prune-empty –tag-name-filter cat – –all
For more info on this command, check out the link to the github doc.
Delete Local Branch
git branch -d the_local_branch
Delete Remote Branch
git push origin --delete
git push origin :
To synchronize your branches once a delete has occurred you sometimes may need to issue the following fetch command.
git fetch -p
Getting a Remote Branch
git checkout -b new_local_branch origin/existing_remote_branch
…and last but not least, the forgotten remote branch delete command.
git push origin --delete serverfix
