List branches sorted by most recent commit date

If you're working on multiple projects or multiple features in the same project, you probably have different branches locally.
Sometimes, it's not easy for us to remember exactly the branch that we worked on most recently. The branch command lists all branches sorted by alphabetical order:
$ git branch
avoid-mixing-styles
fold-css
* quick-color-variables
skip-questions
sort-branches
The * symbol indicates the current branch. The list might be longer if you don't often remove the merged branches which are usually not relevant anymore.
Fortunately, Git provides the sort parameter allowing us to list branches which are sorted by the commit date:
$ git branch --sort=-committerdate
* sort-branches
fold-css
quick-color-variables
skip-questions
avoid-mixing-styles
You can reverse the sorting direction by omitting-:
$ git branch --sort=committerdate
avoid-mixing-styles
skip-questions
quick-color-variables
fold-css
* sort-branches
It's good to know that we can make this behaviour as the default when listing branches:
$ git config --global branch.sort -committerdate
