There are many GIT commands, but I’m going to brief only the most basic commands as below.
– branch : Mirror of the master with different feature and won’t affect the master plan. Lists existing branches, including remote branches if ‘-a’ is provided. Creates a new branch if a branch name is provided.
Example: git branch -a * master remotes/origin/master
– clone : Clone from a remote souce and adds the original location as a remote so you can fetch from it again and push to it if you have permissions.
Example: git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:user/test.git
– push : Pushes all the modified local objects to the remote repository and advances its branches.
Example: git push origin master
– pull : Get the lastest files from remote repository and merges it with your local one. This command is equal to the git fetch and the git merge sequence.
Example: git pull origin
– merge : Merges one or more branches inot your current branch and automatically creates a new commit if there are no conflicts.
Example: git merge newbranchversion
– fetch : Fetches all the objects from the remote repository taht are not present in the local one.
Example: git fetch origin
– checkout : Checks out a different branch – switches branches by updating the index, working tree, and HEAD to reflect the chosen branch.
