Hacking away at Trying to Merge to develop via Tmux in one command

  • Nice to have 2 copies of local RD, 1 is where I code, and 1 is where I merge to develop.
  • Double quote when assigning variable.
  • Variable assignment in bash = must not have spaces in the middle WUTFACE.
  • Tmux reference Reference. Much better than actual man as now it’s searchable.
  • Tmux new-window command.
  • merge --no-edit to not show the commit message when doing a git-merge.
  • tmux send-keys really has access to other parts of the shell script.
  • git push --dry-run to do everything except pushing it.
#!/usr/bin/env sh

if [ $1 ]; then
  branch_to_merge="$(git symbolic-ref --short HEAD)"


tmux new-window -n $window -d
tmux send-keys -t $window 'echo hello' C-m
tmux send-keys -t $window 'cd ~/Documents/rails_projects/e2e-rewards-dashboard-clone' C-m

tmux send-keys -t $window "git fetch" C-m
tmux send-keys -t $window "git checkout $branch_to_merge" C-m
tmux send-keys -t $window 'git checkout develop' C-m
tmux send-keys -t $window "git merge $branch_to_merge --no-edit" C-m
tmux send-keys -t $window "git push" C-m
tmux send-keys -t $window "say Merged ${branch_to_merge}" C-m
tmux send-keys -t $window "exit" C-m
