git - checkout previous branch

Just discovered this little trick to checkout the previous branch you were working on. It allows you to toggle quickly between your last 2 branches...

git checkout -

For example, lets say you are working on master and you create a new feature branch feature/foo...

git:(master) git checkout -b feature/foo
Switched to a new branch 'feature/foo'
git:(feature/foo)

To quickly switch back to master...

git:(feature/foo) git checkout -
Switched to branch 'master'
git:(master)

And again back to feature/foo...

git:(master) git checkout -
Switched to branch 'feature/foo'
git:(feature/foo)
