If you prefer to use commands through git, here are the 6 most useful git commands you can use in the project.

If we have multiple branches and want to find out which branches haven't merged master yet, we can use:
git branch --no-merged master
Use vim as the default commit message editor
We only need to run this once, if you have any other favorite editor, make sure you have the the program name linked backed to
git config --global core.editor "vim"
Discard unstaged changes and go back to last commit
Warning: this is an irrevocable operation
git reset --hard HEAD^1
Checkout last used branch
"-" variable means last used branch name
git checkout -
