I often create new branches locally (e.g., newLocalBranch), and then push them to the upstream remote origin, thus creating a new remote branch, using
git push -u origin newLocalBranch. Is there a
magit function equivalent to this operation?
magit-push-current-to-pushremote actually works perfect for me. If the branch already exists upstream,
magit-push-current-to-pushremote will just push the committed changes upstream. If the branch does not yet have an upstream location set,
magit-push-current-to-pushremote will prompt to select a remote location from the minibuffer (e.g., origin) to the branch to, defaulting to the same local name (i.e., newLocalBranch). Using
magit-push, instead, would fail because no upstream location has been set for the newLocalBranch yet.
Per the documentation for
Push the current branch to ‘branch.<name>.pushRemote’. If that variable is unset, then push to ‘remote.pushDefault’.
When ‘magit-push-current-set-remote-if-missing’ is non-nil and the push-remote is not configured, then read the push-remote from the user, set it, and then push to it.
IIRC if you register the remote via
magitit also offers to set the option and then the standard push does it too. Mar 3, 2021 at 15:21
Please explain how that answers the question. Say what it does, for example.– DrewMar 3, 2021 at 15:49
