Git commit patches

Is there a way to export a sequence of commits into a patch from Git. Say I need to export the last 5 commits from a repository and import them into another repository. How would I go about doing that?

Help with this would be appreciated.

  • ci/cd independent microservices in monorepo with git bash
  • Cherry-pick this commit - but apply the patch to a differently-named file
  • git hooks - regenerate a file and add it to each commit?
  • ERROR: Permission to user1/repo.git denied to user2

    git format-patch is designed for that purpose:

    git format-patch --stdout HEAD~5 > ~/patches

    The output is a readable BSD-mailbox-style file that contains patches along with some metadata such as the commit messages. To import the patches into the other repository, use git am:

    git am < ~/patches

    You can select any range you want with format-patch

    git format-patch --stdout R1..HEAD > output.patch
