Git Extending with Custom Commands

Extending git with custom commands.

Aliases, would be one way to extend git. You can do things like:

git ci -m message file1

To define the alias, you can do it from the terminal:

git config --global commit

Which would create the following entry in your .gitconfig file

        ci = commit

Show git alias

As an example, we can create an alias to list all aliases. Simple, from terminal we could do:

git config --global alias.alias "config --get-regexp 'alias.*'"

Then, we have access to the following command from terminal:

git alias

Another way would be to add a new command all together.

git binary init
git binary update
