Git aliases for lazy developers

Ire Aderinokun on her blog bitsofcode:

I prefer to interface with git via the command line, at least for the simple commands. However, I’m a bit lazy, and don’t like having to repeatedly type out the same long commands multiple times a day. Over the years, I have created some short aliases that allow me to more quickly use git via the command line.

Creating aliases for common commands is definitely the way to go. I do something similar in my dotfiles, except I categorize aliases by the language or technology.

Recreating the GitGub contribution graph with CSS Grid

The best way to learn, is to learn by doing!

Ire Aderinokun:

While learning CSS Grid Layout, I’ve found that the best way to internalize all the new concepts and terminology is by working on various layouts using them. Recently, I decided to try to recreate the GitHub Contribution graph using CSS Grid Layout, and found it was an interesting challenge.
