What is Check It Out?
Check It Out lets you interactively see and choose what branch you want to check out without the hassle of trying to type out a long or confusing branch name. Checking out branches just got even simpler!
Check It Out currently has known issues with Windows. Some users have reported it working while others have reported that it does not. It is built and tested mostly in an Arch Linux environment with some user testing on MacOS and other Linux distributions. We're currently looking for help figuring out why Check It Out is unstable on Windows. See CIO-128
We're on NPM!
npm install -g check-it-out

Run this command to list local and remote branches!
Call git log on current highlighted branch with space
|j/k, ▼/▲||Navigate the list|
|h/l, ◄/►||Previous/Next remote|
|Ctrl+r||Refresh list with a fetch and prune|
|enter||Select highlighted item|
|q, Ctrl+c, esc||Quit|
Git log argument validation is planned, but not finished. Currently, if the git log fails, space should not crash the app, but the process should not spawn at all.
