git push without setting upstream


This article was also cross posted to feel free to drop in to give it a ♥ and leave comment.

Finally after years of hand typing out a full git push --upstream my\_really\_long\_and\_descriptive\_branch\_name I foudn there is a setting to automatcally push to the current branch. More realisitically I just did a git push let git yell at me, and copying the suggestion.

git config --global push.default current

This one setting will now git push to the current branch without yelling at you that your upstream does not match your current branch.
