This post is part of my Today I learned series in which I share all my learnings regarding web development.

Another very quick one โ€“ I just watched one of our weekly team calls and my new colleague Tilde shared that git has an auto correct feature. Very useful. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Two terminal windows: one showing git complaining about an unknown command `stats` and another one automatically fixing the command

For now I'm running with the following config which gives me four seconds of time to cancel if the correction is not what I want.

 [help]
     autocorrect = 40

If you want to learn more have a look at the git docs.
