How can I open the current GitHub branch on Web using Windows command line?
I had this command working on my Mac/Linux (Terminal) with OhMyZsh, but once I moved to Windows, I wasn’t sure how to update it using Cmdr/ConEmu shell.
Basically, I want an alias that is like “goweb” that will open my default browser to the current branch on GitHub. I’m fine assuming a particular repo. Maybe a later enhancement would pull that as well using, e.g., default remote or the like..
This answer hard-codes the repo URL and just appends the current branch. Add this to your user-aliases.cmd (if using cmdr) or wherever you can set aliases.
goweb=@echo off && for /f %i in ('git rev-parse --abbrev-ref HEAD') do start https://<pathToRepo>/tree/%i
Replace with the URL to your repo.
Once this is in there, you can just type
goweb from your CLI and it should open it for ya. Saves a few clicks when you need to do something on your current branch on GH.
