Git Quick reference (cheatsheet)

Last Updated: Feb. 17th 2022 at 6:59pm Tags: blog git cheatsheet

I use Git on a daily basis; however, I don’t use every command frequently so here is a quick list of git commands used infrequently. I guess this is meant to be a cheat sheet.

Immediately checkout a branch

This one is used on a daily basis.
I’m including it because when I learned git branches in a two step process (branch then checkout).
It’s a time wasting habit I had to break

git checkout -b branchName

Add All uncommited files

Go to the base director and add it like so:

git add .

Remove (stage) all deleted files

If you have a number of deleted files and you want them all committed, run this command:

git add -u

Remove branch

git branch -D branch_name

Remove branch from remote

This is really handy when your using Github or Gitlab.

git push origin --delete branch_name

List Remote Repositories

List remote repositories you have setup

git remote -v
