checkout last branch

Sometimes you are checking out mutltiple different git branches and want to navigate back to previous branch.

You can use git checkout - to do it

example :

$ git checkout ay/convert-errors-lib
Updating files: 100% (2480/2480), done.
Switched to branch 'ay/convert-errors-lib'
$ git checkout -
Updating files: 100% (2480/2480), done.
Switched to branch 'master'
Your branch is up to date with 'origin/master'.

If you want to checkout 2 branches a go. you can do

$ git checkout @{-2}

Basically git checkout - is equql to git checkout @{-1}

If you want to list all of the checked out branch (history) you can use this script

$ for i in {1..10}; do echo -n "[$i] "; git rev-parse --symbolic-full-name @{-$i}; done

I added this as a git command on my zsh. have a look at this commit
