Git Hub Shell Commands#
Reverting branch to a previous commit to delete all (ie. wiping everything after a commit)#
git reset --hard <SHA> git push origin master -f
Reverting a single erroneous commit and keeping all others before and after#
Basically undoes everything in that commit and commits as a new commit.
Example, you have commits A,B,C,D. You only want to get rid of C but can’t revert the entire branch to D and lose commits AB.
git revert <SHA> git push origin master
Delete untracked files#
git clean -f -d
git checkout --
Search for commit message#
git log --grep=<pattern>
Reset head to a specific branch#
Helpful when you performing a merge and want to reset branch to repo
git fetch origin git reset --hard origin/staging
Reset master branch to the full contents on another branch#
Use the ours merging strategy
git checkout master git pull origin master git checkout staging git pull origin staging git merge -s ours master git checkout master git merge staging
Tag an old commit#
git tag -a <version tag> <commit hash> -m "<message>" git tag -a v1.2 9fceb02 -m "Message here"
