As we know in current industry one of the most important aspect of development cycle is the use of code version tool.
We have different options in the industry, the most common one are :
Both of these have enormous number of users in the industry, whereas GIT is coming out to be a more preferred choice for developers across the globe. This post is just a basic kickabout stuff that will be required to get you started with GIT over Linux/Unix, A set of commands commonly used for operating GIT over the terminal which has been my preferred choice rather than the tools that are available with a GUI.
So lets get started.
git init – This creates a new local repository on the machine.
git clone path – The command creates a clone to the repo on the local machine.
git add <file> – Add the untracked files to the repository
git add * – Add all the untracked files to the repo.
git add -i – Opens up a menu that allows the user to enter a choice over the command line tool.
git status – Provides the status of the working directory
git commit -m “Message” -Commit the untracked changes to the repository branch.
git commit -a -m “Message” – Commit and Add all the tracked/untracked files to the repo.
git push branch_name – push the changes to the remote branch
git pull – pull the content from the remote repo.
git checkout <branch_name> – checkout a particular branch.
git checkout -b <branch_name> – creates a new branch and switch the to the branch simultaneously.
git merge <branch_name> – merge the branch into your current branch.
The above listed are the most used commands for interacting with GIT.
Hope the content above helps.
