Lost in a sea of local branches? `--sort` might help!

If you are like me, never really cleaning up your local Git branches, you might feel a little lost when coming back to a project.

But I have a handy tip for us:

git branch --sort=-committerdate  # DESC

Sorting branches by the last commit date are super duper handy; you can even flip it around and get a list of the branches we maybe should stop hoarding.

git branch --sort=committerdate  # ASC

All the best,
