Git Push Without Setting Upstream


Finally after years of hand typing out a full git push --upstream my_really_long_and_descriptive_branch_name I found 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

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. This helps me ship chnages faster as I am constantly chnaging projects and branches.
