Merge and Rebase:

Interactive rebasing  it offers complete control over the branch’s commit history git rebase -i master The golden rule of git rebase is to never use it on public branches. So, before you run git rebase, always ask yourself, “Is anyone else looking at this branch?” If the answer is yes, take your hands off the keyboard and start thinking about a non-destructive way to make your changes (e.g., the git revert command) gitkgit bisect

.gitignore Git sees every file in your working copy as one of three things.

  1. Tracked
  2. Untracked
  3. Ignored

Ignoring a previously committed file

$ echo debug.log >> .gitignore
$ git rm --cached debug.log
rm 'debug.log'
\$ git commit -m "Start ignoring debug.log"

Undoing commits & changes

Aborting merge conflict

git reset --hard HEAD

git reset

Reverting a rebase

git reflog
git reset —hard HEAD@{2}

Remove all your local git branches but keep master

git branch | grep -v "master" | xargs git branch -D

Push a rebased local branch by using --force-with-lease

git push —force-with-lease

Polish my git feature branch before merging or submitting for review

git rebase -i COMMITHASH

to the commit

git commit —fixup COMMITHASH
git rebase -i —autosquash COMMITHASH

Auto Squash

git merge --squash app-refactoring

To take out entire commit

`git reset HEAD~`

Undo a commit that has already been pushed to the remote repository

git revert c011d0f

Temporarily store some work in progress because I have to jump to another branch

git stash
git stash list
git stash pop
git stash apply

Delete all the branches other than master

git branch | grep -v "master" | xargs git branch -D

Keep the file as is in the master, exclude local changes from git

# To skip git
git update-index --skip-worktree <file>

# Revert
git update-index --no-skip-worktree <file>
# To find commits of the author
git log --author=Oguzhan

# Check commit with message
git show --color --pretty=format:%b c2b88ed806fb5728a376bddab0c0e6d13d1ee15a

List all the commit from a specific commit on without commit hash

git log --pretty=oneline  commit-hash..HEAD --format="$ad- %s [%an]"
