git-sed - replace patterns in git-controlled files
git-sed [ -c ] [ -f flags ] search replacement [ flags ]
Run git grep and then send results to sed for replacement with the given flags, if they are provided via -f or as the third argument. Also runs git commit if -c is provided.
-c commit the resulting changes with a standard commit message detailing the exact command ran. will fail if there are unstaged changes. <flags> -f <flags> will use the given regex flags in the sed command (for example "g" replaces multiple times on the same line). <search> the pattern passed to grep and to the first part of the sed expression. <replacement> the replacement passed to sed, the second part of the sed expression.
$ git sed ´my_function´ ´do_stuff´ # ... only does the changes, without committing $ git commit -m"use proper function name" $ git sed -c ´do_stuff´ ´stuff´ # .. does the changes and a commit $ git sed -f g do_stuff stuff # .. g is actually pretty important, otherwise you will miss some # stuff!
