Command aliases are not the same as repository aliases.
GeoGig supports command aliases. These are alternate name for certain commands and command options.
To add an alias, a new configuration variable has to be added with the name
alias.<name_of_alias> and the value that GeoGig should replace the alias with when it is invoked.
For instance, you can define an alias for the command
commit --amend to be
am by running the following command:
geogig config alias.am commit --amend
To amend a commit, now you can use the following notation:
If you want the alias to be available for the current repository, just call the config command with no extra options, as in the example above. If you want it to be available system-wide, use the
--global switch to create a global configuration variable.
geogig config --global alias.am commit --amend
