NAME

       git-create-branch - Create branches

SYNOPSIS

       git-create-branch [-r|--remote [remote_name]] <branchname>

DESCRIPTION

       Creates local branch named <branchname> and optionally sets up a remote tracking branch.

OPTIONS

       <-r|--remote [remote_name]>

       Setup  a  remote  tracking  branch  using remote_name. If remote_name is not supplied, use
       origin by default.

       <branchname>

       The name of the branch to create.

PREFERENCES

       You may save your default preference for the remote option above by using git config  with
       the  key  git-extras.create-branch.remote  whose  value  will  be  the default remote when
       [-r|--remote] is not specified.

           $ git config git-extras.create-branch.remote lucinda

       The command line option -r|--remote will override this preference.

EXAMPLES

       With no remote preference set:

           # creates local branch ´integration´
           $ git create-branch integration

           # creates local & remote branch ´integration´ (on default ´origin´)
           $ git create-branch -r integration

           # creates local & remote branch ´integration´ on ´upstream´
           $ git create-branch -r upstream integration

       With git-extras.create-branch.remote preference set to ´lucinda´:

           # creates local & remote branch ´integration´ (on preference ´lucinda´)
           $ git create-branch integration

           # overriding preference, using default `-r` of ´origin´
           # creates local & remote branch ´integration´ on default ´origin´
           $ git create-branch -r integration

           # overriding preference, using specified `-r` of ´upstream´
           # creates local & remote branch ´integration´ on ´upstream´
           $ git create-branch -r upstream integration

NOTES

       ○   As of 4.4.0, the default  behavior  has  changed.  git-create-branch  will  no  longer
           automatically  setup  a  remote  tracking  branch  unless  the  -r|-remote  option  is
           specified. See additional note on preference feature in 4.8.0-dev below.

       ○   As of 4.8.0-dev, the remote option can be set via git config preference  as  described
           in #PREFERENCES section.
