Git rebase allows you to execute a command on any commit in a rebase:
git rebase -i -exec "git reset-authors"
The result will look something like this:
pick xxxyyy Do stuff to things exec git reset-authors pick yyyzzz Do things to stuff exec git reset-authors
It is very useful for resetting authors on multiple commits in case you forgot to set the current pair.
P.S. If you are curious about what
git reset-authors does check out our
.gitconfig in Hashrocket’s dotfiles:
[alias] reset-authors = commit --amend --reset-author -CHEAD
