  • Configure git to fetch PRs (particularly nice with git log --decorate [try git config log.decorate auto]). Add this magic line under the existing fetch line for your GitHub remote in $repo/.git/config:
 fetch = +refs/pull/*/head:refs/pull/origin/*
  • Get a PR locally, or create a PR from the current branch. Courtesy of @tamird. TODO: refuse to create a PR if the current branch diverged from the tracker.
#!/usr/bin/env sh

set -eu

error_message() {
  if [ $ret -ne 0 ]; then
    echo "Something went wrong. Did you push your branch? Did you set a remote tracking branch?"
  exit $ret

trap error_message EXIT

if [ $# == 0 ]; then
  branch_name=$(git rev-parse --abbrev-ref HEAD)
  remote_name=$(git config branch."$branch_name".remote)

  github_forked_org_name=$(git config remote."$remote_name".url | sed -E -e 's,^(https://|git@)[:/]([^\./]+)/[^\./]+(\.git)?,\2,')
  github_origin_proj_url=$(git config remote.origin.url         | sed -E -e 's,^(https://|git@)[:/]([^\./]+/[^\./]+)(\.git)?,\2,')


  open "$url"
  hub fetch origin refs/pull/"$1"/head:pr/"$1" && hub checkout pr/"$1"
  • Determine the variables which are escaping to the heap for a given file. Courtesy of @nvanbenschoten.
#!/usr/bin/env bash

set -eu

if [ $# -eq 0 ]
        echo "usage: goescape <filename>"
        exit 1

DIR=$(dirname "$FILEPATH")
FILE=$(basename "$FILEPATH")

pushd "$DIR" > /dev/null
touch "$FILE"

go build -gcflags='-m' 2>&1 | \
        grep 'to heap' | \
        grep "./$FILE"

popd > /dev/null

Taking this one step further, we can annotate a source file with information on heap allocations:

goescape "${WHAT}" |
  awk -F: '{ print "-e " $2 "," $2 "\"s~$~ /* heap:" $4 " */~\"" }' |
  cat - <(echo "${WHAT}") | xargs sed -i

Which, in this example, would create diffs which look like this:

  • Hate how Github collapses all comments that are not on the most recent commit? Use this javascript code to quickly open all the old comments. You can add this to a bookmark on Chrome, just set the URL to the code below.
javascript: (function() {var list = document.getElementsByClassName("outdated-diff-comment-container"); for (var i = 0; i < list.length; i++) {list[i].classList.add("open");} ;}());`
