Bash script to automate git release flow.

Two weeks before I got a chance to do a code release for the staging environment at my workplace. So there were simple yet easy to forget the steps involved in doing a code release for our staging environment. The truth was I honestly forgot to run the git push --tags origin command in the process.

So given all the circumstances, I thought it would be great if I wrote a simple script to automate this process. I mean at least it would have stopped me making silly mistakes and I really hate keeping more than 10 commands on my head and doing it in order. Aaaaand I'm lazy...

As the meme above says not all, but at least do it where you can! So here is a simple bash script I wrote. Guess what! I did several releases with this thing and it was awesome!

This does some extra work as I needed those. Feel free to modify it and use it for your own purposes. Enjoy!
