Apply a commit chunk by chunk
When I add a file to staging, I can
$ git add my_file -p
And select the chunks I want to stage.

I’m not aware of a direct way to do this but here’s an indirect way.
git cherry-pick -n <commit>
Cherry pick the commit but tell git not to commit it (
-n). The changes should now be in your working copy so you can do
git checkout -p
This will iterate over each chunk and ask if you want to discard it, say yes to any chunks you don’t want and no to chunks you want to keep.
