Some Useful Git Commands

Since I started blogging in English, I think I can translate some useful posts even they were written a few years ago. It’s a translation of the same post in Russian

I’m tired to blog the same so I created this blog post to have everything in one place.

Set username/email for git:

$ git config --global "" $ git config --global "e0ne" You can omit to set it global and it will be set only for the current repository.

Set upstream branch

$ git branch --set-upstream master upstream/master

Chage the last commit

$ git commit --amend -a

Change the author of several commits

$ git filter-branch –commit-filter ‘
        if [ “$GIT_COMMITTER_NAME” = “” ];
                git commit-tree “$@”;
                git commit-tree “$@”;
        fi’ HEAD
$ git push

Mark merge conflics as resolved

$ git add file

Rollback local commits

reset –soft HEAD^

Move tag to another commit

I hope you will NOT do it but if you need, you can do it in a following way: $ git tag -d ver_0.1 $ git push origin :refs/tags/ver_0.1

The best git manual

My .gitconfig

It’s a bit outdated, I have to update it:

My global .gitignore

Create brach from tag

$ git checkout -b branchname tag

Pull remote changes and revert all local changes

$ git fetch --all $ git reset --hard origin/master

Clean working directory: remove all untracked files ad directories

$ git clean -f -d
