I love snowboarding, but I don’t like how the cost or perception of cost limits who has the opportunity to do it. I’m a volunteer board member at Snowdays Foundation because I love to be able to share snowboarding with those who might not otherwise get the chance to do it.

Caveats: If you have file names with odd characters (spaces, etc…), you need to reference this StackOverflow answer. Also, no guarantees on dos2unix, but it seems to be widely used.

Basic steps:

  1. Generate a list of all of the files that changed in the commits that you have made using git diff --name-only
  2. Run the command line utility dos2unix on that list of files (if you’re on Mac OS X you can install it with Homebrew or another tool of your choice)
  3. Add and commit the changed files

Example code:

// This example fixes the last two commits, HEAD~2, in bash
// Run this from your project root
$ git diff --name-only HEAD~2 > ../filesToFix.txt
$ dos2unix $(< ../filesToFix.txt)
$ git commit -am 'Fixed line endings'
