git-pretty-accept is a script that rebases a pull request before merging to master. Pull requests are always merged recursively. The result is a linear history with merge bubbles indicating pull requests. In short, pretty.

For more information, check out

git-pretty-accept also automatically deletes the local and remote branch of the pull request once it's merged to master. I may add an option later on to disable this by default.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'git_pretty_accept'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install git_pretty_accept


$ git pretty-accept BRANCH


  1. Fork it
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create new Pull Request
