git note

Branch from a previous commit using Git

The magic can be done by git reset.

Create a new branch and switch to it (so all of your latest commits are stored here)

git checkout -b your_new_branch

Switch back to your previous working branch (assume it’s master)

git checkout master

Remove the latest x commits, keep master clean

git reset –hard HEAD~x # in your case, x = 3

From this moment on, all the latest x commits are only in the new branch, not in your previous working branch (master) any more.

Ignoring an already checked-in directory

git rm -r --cached <your directory>

The -r option causes the removal of all files under your directory. The –cached option causes the files to only be removed from git’s index, not your working copy. By default git rm would delete

push a new local branch to a remote Git repository and track it

git checkout -b <branch>  | git branch <branch>
git push -u origin <branch>

Adding Only Untracked Files

git add -i. Type a (for “add untracked”), then * (for “all”), then q (to quit)

Discard all Changes not staged for commit

git checkout – .

Create a new empty branch and import from svn

git checkout --orphan <branchname>
git rm --cached -r .
svn checkout
git add .
git commit -m "backup from svn tag"
git push --set-upstream origin <branchname>

save username and password in git

git config credential.helper store
git pull


I delete a Git branch both locally and remotely

Executive Summary $ git push -d origin $ git branch -d Delete Local Branch To delete the local branch use:

$ git branch -d branch_name or use: $ git branch -D branch_name As of Git v1.7.0, you can delete a remote branch using $ git push origin –delete

git without proxy

method 1

$ env|grep proxy
$ unset http_proxy
$ git pull

method 2(proxy for certain git urls/domains)

@web:~/workspace/git/pub$ cat .git/config
        repositoryformatversion = 0
        filemode = true
        bare = false
        logallrefupdates = true
    proxy = ""
    proxy = ""
