How to count lines of code in a repo

git ls-files | xargs wc -l


To compress multiple commits into a single commit.

See reference blog post

  • This can be useful to push cleaner branches to pull request.
  • Also it might make easier to git rebase since it will be just one step instead of multiple steps.

git rebase -i HEAD~3

A file will open up in your editor for you to choose which commits to squash and which to leave like that (pick). Change the pick keyword to squash if you want to squash a particular commit. Then save to finish the rebase (squash).

Only squash commits that haven't been push to origin. Otherwise you would be rewriting history and that can cause painful sync issues.
