  11. 11. .gitignore ● Can be configured to ignore certain files and directories ● Git ignores empty directories by default
  12. 12. My first repo ● cd ~/git/myproject/ #Open your project directory in terminal ● git init #Initiating a git repository ● git remote add origin #Adding remote repository URL ● git add . #Adding files to be committed ● git commit -m "Initial commit" #Committing the added files and changes ● git push origin master #Pushing the commits to remote repository

  19. 19. Merge conflicts ● A merge conflicts occurs, if two people have modified the same content.
  20. 20. git mergetool ●
  21. 21. Status and History ● git diff #Shows differences in uncommitted files / last commit ● git log #Shows history of commits in the current branch ● git log --oneline --abbrev-commit #Shows one line commit history with short commit id ● git log --graph --pretty --oneline --abbrev-commit #Shows the history as graph ● git diff-tree --name-only -r <commit_id> #Shows files changed in the commit ● git show <commit_id> #Shows changes in the commit
  22. 22. History of file ● git log [filename] #Shows commits for the file ● git log -p [filename] #Shows commits for the file with changes ● git log --follow -p [filename] #Shows commits for the file including renames ● git blame [filename] #Shows author and commit per line of the file ● git blame -L 1,3 [filename] #Shows author and commit from line 2 to line 3 ● git commit --amend -m "More changes - now correct" #To amend changes to previous commit before pushing
  23. 23. Remote repositories ● git remote #Show the existing remote repos ● git remote show origin #Show the details of remote repo origin ● git clone #To clone remote repository
  24. 24. git stash ● Allows to save the current uncommitted changes and checkout the last committed revision. ● Allows you to pull in the latest changes without conflicts. ● Afterwards you can restore the stashed changes, which will apply the changes to the current version of the source code.
  25. 25. git stash (Contd...) ● git stash save "stash message" #To save uncommited changes as stash ● git stash list #To view list of saved stashes #stash@{0}: On master: Title changed ● git stash apply stash@{0} #To apply the particular stash ● git stash drop stash@{0} #To drop particular stash ● git stash clear #To drop all saved stashes ● git stash pop #To apply most recent stash and delete it from list of stashes
  26. 26. git stash (Contd...)
  27. 27. Reverting changes ● git clean - To remove newly added files ○ git clean -n #To see what would happen ○ git clean -f #To remove the files ● git checkout - To revert changed and deleted files ○ git checkout . #To revert all changed files ○ git checkout [filename] #To restore or revert the file ○ git checkout <commit_id> #To checkout a particular commit
  28. 28. Reverting changes (Contd...) ● git reset [filename] #To remove a file added by git add before pushing ● git checkout HEAD -- [dir_name] #To recover an accidentally deleted directory in repo ● git revert <commit_id> #To revert a particular commit ● git reset --hard HEAD~1 #To delete last 1 commit ● git reset --hard <sha1-commit-id> #To delete upto a particular commit ● git push -f #Push with force to push commit deletions
  29. 29. Reverting changes (Contd...) ● git reflog #Shows a history of the complete changes of your current branch based on the HEAD revision ● git reset --hard <commit_id> #To revert to a commit shown in git reflog
  30. 30. Branches ● Branches are copies of the files from a certain commit and they can be changed independently from each other. ● The default branch is called master. ● Untracked files remain unchanged and are available in the new branch. This allows you to create a branch for unstaged and uncommitted changes at any point in time.
  31. 31. Branches (Contd...) ● git branch #List available branches ● git branch -a #List available branches including remote branches ● git branch -r #List remote branches only ● git branch <branch_name> #To create new branch ● git checkout <branch_name> #To switch to a branch ● git checkout -b <branch_name> #To create a branch and switch to it
  32. 32. Branches (Contd...) ● git checkout -b <branch_name> master~1 #Create a new branch based on master without last commit ● git branch -d <branch_name> #To delete a branch ● git push origin <branch_name> #To push branch to remote ● git push origin --delete <branch_name> #To delete a remote branch ● git checkout -b <branch_name> origin/<branch_name> #To create a tracking branch ● git merge <branch_name> #To merge specified branch with current branch
  33. 33. Retrieving files ● git show [reference]:[filename] #To see contents of a file # [reference] can be a branch, tag, HEAD or commit ID ● git show [reference]:[filename] > [filename_copy] #To copy a file ● git log -- [filename] #To see commit history of a file, even if deleted

  35. 35. Submodules - Repos inside repos ● Allows you to include another Git repository into a Git repository ● git submodule add [URL to Git repo] #To add submodule to your repo ● After cloning a repo with submodules ○ git submodule init #Creates local configuration file for submodules ○ git submodule update #To clone submodules
  36. 36. ● Rebase ● Patches ● Git server Missed Out:
