Create with Timestamp
Today I learned how to interpolate a timestamp at the command line. Here are two examples:
For a file:
$ touch test_$(date +%s).md $ ls test_1435435401.md
For a git branch:
$ git checkout -b pull_request_$(date +%s) Switched to a new branch 'pull_request_1435435344'
The timestamp represents seconds since the UNIX epoch.Tweet
