Two ways to temporary save work in git

If you're working on a branch and need to switch to a different branch mid-work:

Git stash

Use git stash to save all staged and unstaged changes to stash.

To retrive work, checkout your original feature branch and do git stash pop to restore latest batch of changes from stash.

WIP and reset

Commit everything as WIP.

git add -A && git commit -m 'WIP'

I aliased this command so it's executed by running git wip.

To remove WIP commit but keep changes, I run git undo which is alias for:

git reset HEAD~1 --mixed

I find wip/undo commands execute faster than git stash.
