Set default push branch name

Angelos Chalaris · Git, Configuration, Branch · Jun 30, 2021

Use the name of the current branch when pushing by default as the name of the remote branch.

  • Use git config push.default current to set the name of the remote branch to the one of the current local branch as the default.
  • You can use the --global flag to configure this option globally.
git config [--global] push.default current
git config --global push.default current

git checkout -b my-branch
git push -u
# Pushes to origin/my-branch
