I mess up a lot, and often want to do a quick amend to the last commit.
;; C-c C-a to amend without any prompt (defun magit-just-amend () (interactive) (save-window-excursion (magit-with-refresh (shell-command "git --no-pager commit --amend --reuse-message=HEAD")))) (eval-after-load "magit" '(define-key magit-status-mode-map (kbd "C-c C-a") 'magit-just-amend))
This code will let me just press C-c C-a and it amends with no fuss at all.
Thanks to this post for the inspiration.
