Today Bez Hermoso's git tip passed my Twitter timeline, and it's worth bookmarking it here on my blog.

Whenever you find yourself cd'ing around in a large project just to reach the root of a git repository, the following alias might come in handy.

alias gr='cd $(git rev-parse --show-toplevel)'

It automatically navigates you to the git repo root! 💪
