How cool would it be to show all your current branches with their last update time?

> git wip

Here is an alias to do so.

Edit your ~/.gitconfig file, or create one if you don't have it, and add the following lines (if you already have a [alias] section, just add the alias):

wip= for-each-ref --sort='authordate:iso8601' --format=' %(color:green)%(authordate:relative)%09%(color:white)%(refname:short)' refs/heads

Tada! All you have to do now is typing 'git wip' in your terminal. It’s really useful for remembering on which branch you were just working on.
