Understanding Tracking Branches in Git. Here's a topic that took me a while to understand in git, and now (I think!) I do, I thought I'd write it all down while I can remember! Some branches in git (such as your origin/master branch) will usually track the remote branch that they are related to. But what if you want to create a relationship between local and remote branches?

Or stop them from tracking? What is a tracking branch? This is a branch which knows which remote branch it is related to, and making this link allows us to take advantage of some neat git tricks. You can git push or git pull without specifying remote or branch and it will use its tracking sister branch by defaultThe git status command will include information about how far behind your tracking branch you are - useful to remind you that you haven't pushed your changes yet!

$ git status # On branch branch1 # Your branch is ahead of 'origin/branch1' by 1 commit. # (use "git push" to publish your local commits) # nothing to commit, working directory clean Then: Edharn / EdGit. List remote branches. Committed 13 Feb 2009 Sometimes you may need to figure out what branches exist on a remote repository so you can pull them down and check them out, merge them into your local branches, etc. If you’re using GitHub or gitweb to host your repository it’s usually easy to determine the branch names, but if you need to get them in general or for scripts it’s not exactly clear. UPDATE: The comments have enlightened me quite a bit…there seems to always be more than one way to skin a cat using Git. The easiest way is just to use the git branch commands’ various options. -a shows all local and remote branches, while -r shows only remote branches. $ git branch * master $ git branch -a * master origin/1-2-stable origin/2-0-stable origin/2-1-stable origin/2-2-stable origin/3-0-unstable origin/HEAD origin/master $ git branch -r origin/1-2-stable origin/2-0-stable origin/2-1-stable origin/2-2-stable origin/3-0-unstable origin/HEAD origin/master.

Let’s go through a simple example of branching and merging with a workflow that you might use in the real world. You’ll follow these steps: Do work on a web site.Create a branch for a new story you’re working on.Do some work in that branch. At this stage, you’ll receive a call that another issue is critical and you need a hotfix. You’ll do the following: Switch to your production branch.Create a branch to add the hotfix.After it’s tested, merge the hotfix branch, and push to production.Switch back to your original story and continue working. Basic Branching First, let’s say you’re working on your project and have a couple of commits already.

You’ve decided that you’re going to work on issue #53 in whatever issue-tracking system your company uses. . $ git checkout -b iss53 Switched to a new branch "iss53" This is shorthand for: $ git branch iss53 $ git checkout iss53 You work on your web site and do some commits. . $ vim index.html $ git commit -a -m 'added a new footer [issue 53]' Basic Merging Note.

Run the following commands so that git knows your name and email. If you have git already setup, you can skip down to the line ending section. Execute: git config --global "Your Name" git config --global "" Setup Line Ending Preferences Also, for Unix/Mac users: git config --global core.autocrlf input git config --global core.safecrlf true And for Windows users: git config --global core.autocrlf true git config --global core.safecrlf true Setup Ruby For this tutorial you need a working Ruby interpreter.

How do I exit the results of 'git diff' in git bash on windows. How to fix GIT error: object file is empty. Git Tutorial. 1.1. What is a version control system? A version control system allows you to track the history of a collection of files and includes the functionality to revert the collection of files to another version. Each version captures a snapshot of the files at a certain point in time. The collection of files is usually source code for a programming language but a typical version control system can put any type of file under version control. The collection of files and their complete history are stored in a repository. The process of creating different versions (snapshots) in the repository is depicted in the following graphic.

These snapshots can be used to change your collection of files. 1.2. A distributed version control system does not necessarily have a central server which stores the data. The user can copy an existing repository. Typically there is a central server for keeping a repository but each cloned repository is a full copy of this repository. 1.4. 1.6. 1.8. 1.9.
