4 Quick Tips for Cleaner Git History

Thanks to Ryan Abel from Atomic Object for these Four Steps to Maintaining a Clean Git History – the rebase tip is especially useful, and while I’m *always* a little hesitant to press ‘delete’ on most things, there are times when it’s a-ok!

Git is a very important tool. Not only does it keep a history of a project, but Git also makes it easy for a team to collaborate in a codebase. Although it’s such an important tool, it’s often under-utilized and on occasion, even neglected.
