It seems like git has been picking up more and more traction in the web community, and tools like Tower and gitx seem to be making git tons more accessible to designers. One of my favorite features of git is how easy it makes branching. Most of the time that I work on a new feature I create a branch for it in my git repo, and I typically push that branch up to the server if it’s going to be around for more than a few hours. The commands for doing all of that can be hard to remember, though. Enter grb, short for git_remote_branch.
