git is too overcomplicated for its own good
imagine making accessible tools
@sky I remember being so confused trying to help with tiny css things a long time ago. How do I get hub
@sky i wish mercurial had been more popular it was at least easier to use tbh
git commit -m “e to the insane asylum”
@sky Mastodon is saved
@sky oh my god this has me cackling
@sky oh my god I live in fear of doing this lmao. GitHub makes pull requests hard to parse too
@sky fwiw, I'm sure you made eugen sigh exasperatedly, and that makes me smile
But also what, come on git
@sky this seems like a change everyone deserves tho
@sky Less a problem with git itself and more a problem with GitHub-specific UX, but still, incredibly relatable. GitHub makes it *ridiculously* difficult to tell what's going to happen when you open a PR across forks.
This is one of the few things that vanilla git is less-bad about, if only because git doesn't technically have native pull requests aside from sending an email to a person saying "hey please pull from my branch, it has these changes"
@sky Oh this is incredible
@sky As I say about Git: Git makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot. But it also makes it easy to re-attach an older version of your foot. Either way, it's still up to you to make sure you have the right (or left) foot.
@sky Also? Solving every change management issue using Git commands might give you a better audit trail. But sometimes the best and easiest way is to simply fix a borked code-base manually in a branch, test it, and then merge to the parent branch.
@sky amaroq’s awoo mode def improved this one
