Bits and bytes of code

Bytes is my collection of short-form posts, tips, and things I learn as I build software.

Keeping your Git branches clean in your local repo is very helpful to make it easy to switch between branches you are currently working on. The last thing you want is a bunch of old branches that have already been merged showing in your list of branches when running git checkout.

From time to time, it's helpful to send a coworker the GitHub commit URL for the latest commit in a repository. While you can navigate to GitHub, find the commit links, and manually copy it, using a custom CLI command makes this super easy!

In a previous byte, I discussed how the Arc browser allows a great deal of configuration for keyboard shortcuts. Another thing that I love about Arc is something you get right out of the box: the tab switcher.

If you haven't tried the Arc browser I highly recommend giving it a try. It's a fantastic rethinking of how a web browser should work, with tons of goodies packed inside.
