I’ve Googled way too many times how to list your git branches by date and since the command is too complicated to actually remember or type out I decided to make this a ruby gem that you can execute from the command line.
I tend to create a lot of branches, but I can never remember the exact names and typing
git branch doesn’t show dates next to the branch names.
This is the stackoverflow page I kept referring to all the time.
I made this tool over 6 years ago and I still use it on a regular basis. Check it out. It will improve the quality of your life.
