This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions, it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older, it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar. Understand more

We're always looking for ways to remove small frictions from pair programming, which is why we're excited by git-together, a tool written in Rust that simplifies git commit attribution during pairing. By aliasing git-together as git, the tool allows you to add extensions to git config that capture committer information, aliasing each committer by their initials. Changing pairs (or switching to soloing or mob programming) requires you to run git with, followed by the initials of the pair (for example: git with bb cc), allowing you to resume your regular git workflow afterward. Every time you commit, git-together will rotate through the pair as the official author that git stores, and it will automatically add any other authors to the bottom of the commit message. The configuration can be checked in with the repo, allowing git-together to work automatically after cloning a repo.
