This is one of the best pieces of technical writing I've seen - an implementation of (some of) Git in JavaScript, with a very well written inline description of what's going on.

Closing Some Tabs

I'm closing out some 2014 tabs, so have a few useful links.

Want to make a game, but don't know how to get started? Sortingh.at is a great step-by-step resource.

Using Google Apps-for-business and group mail is bouncing? Follow these instructions to switch to "proper" groups.

Think you can recognize your developers from their commit messages? git-game turns it into a neat game where you try to figure out whose entire message was just "fuck" the most often.

Want a machine that make tortillas at the press of a button? I DO. flatev is the answer.

Every time I get the message "To prevent you from losing history, non-fast-forward updates were rejected" I have forgetten how to fix it (in the normal case). Yet another guide to simple rebasing in git. This shit is way too complicated.

I've been meaning to link to this for a while: Deploying at GitHub explains the develop/stage/deploy cycle at github, which can rougly be described as "Like Flickr, but with personal dev environments and using Git". It's light on technical details, but says a lot of the right things.

git-up seems to be the Git tool I had been missing - fetch, stash, rebase, unstash for all branches.
