I often have to test specific pull requests and tanks to this post on how to checkout git pull requests I was able to quickly bash together a script
I wrote this to ~/checkoutPR.sh
echo "Getting Pull request #$1" git fetch origin pull/$1/head:pr-$1 git checkout pr-$1
chmod 775 ~/checkoutPR.sh
Then jump into the repo folder
Grab the Pull request # from the URL, replacing %pullrqeuestnumber% with the pull request #
Simple but useful.
The output is something like this
jose@debian:~/etherpad-lite$ ~/./checkoutPR.sh 1672 Getting Pull request #1672 remote: Counting objects: 142, done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (43/43), done. remote: Total 124 (delta 101), reused 104 (delta 81) Receiving objects: 100% (124/124), 13.58 KiB, done.
