Maybe you should "transition" into business analyst or IT monkey sysadmin :marseyitsover:

yes b-word i'm mad

What other DVC have you used? Which one do you prefer ? Unironically asking because I think git is comfier than the alternatives

  • 4

The definition of an IT monkey sysadmin is someone who thinks they're smart because they know how to use stupid makework software like git or linux desktop.

BIPOC it's not that complicated

  • 26

It's more complicated than it needs to be.

for example, deleting commit history requires 6 command line instructions:

:soycry: no not the heckin git commit history

  • 23

Deleting history is a rare (and bad) workflow. Its probably good that it requires 6 commands to prevent dumbasses from trying it when they shouldnt

How does this have 700 stars? This has to be a joke

I agree that git is too complex but people unironically following these instructions makes me think we should stop giving away so many degrees

  • 14

Dude this is totally r-slurred. why would you use git if youre just going to delete all your history? Just dump it on a cloud or something lmao

There isnt a single command to do it because its anti-thetical to the purpose of git. But even then, the method is obvious to anyone who understand the git model instead of just memorizing commands like a woman.

  • 12

Why would you ever want to delete commit history? Just squash? It would be a r-slurred clusterfrick otherwise, considering how the git data structure works. And it makes sense for a version control system to not make it easy to frick with history anyways

You should rope if you want to do X

use a gui like a normal person

  • 9

a) I do, strags here are actually defending the cli version

b) the gui i use (sublime merge) doesn't solve this particular problem

  • 9

i dont get why you'd want to delete the entire history instead of just squashing with whatever commit you make next

getting real :marseytunaktunak: vibes

  • 18

Literally the only reason to ever delete commit history is because you accidentally left the word “BIPOC” in your commit message :capygitcommit:

  • 15

Git cli is easy lol

I never claimed it was "hard". I claimed it is a waste of time

being a well adjusted normal

GUI just makes git worse, at least to me it's inherently not a visual tool

  • 5

Nahhh

  • 3

why would you ever want to do that kek

  • 2

No there's nothing smart about git that's the point 🤣

  • 5

I agree

Or a girl

hcaw said sysadmin already

  • 14

Solves all your problems tbh

  • 6

It's more complicated than it needs to be. Therefore it's bad.
