Restore deleted files from commit

I’ve just done the following series of steps and I don’t know how to recover my files. git add file.txt git commit -m “Message” rm file.txt git commit -am “Message” Ideally I should have pushed my changes after step 2 and then delete but I forgot. Is there a way to recover the file? Many […]

Changing lots of git commit messages

Apparently I mistyped my email a long time ago, whenever I was setting up git, and so my email has been incorrect in many repositories (I typed a 0 instead of an o). I sign all of my commits, so in almost every commit in every repo for years it’s said signed off by: <xxx0@foo.bar> […]

Why does GitHub invite me to enter two commit messages instead of just one?

This may be a basic question but I thought it would be worth asking. On GitHub, when you add a file to a repository by clicking the plus sign next to the repository’s name, you get a text area where you can enter the contents of the file, followed by two commit messages: However, when […]

Git – removing a commit from branch and keep progress

I know how to reset to a previous commit using git, but what is the proper way to remove a previous commit while still remaining at the current commit? For example, I have commits w, x, y, z, but I want to remove x from the current working branch/tree/head/remote and still keep the rest of […]

What is the convention for committing ugly code to a git repository?

My current usage of git could be described as “commit early and often”. I certainly attempt to make each commit a single logical unit (as discussed in good commit criteria). However, I’m often iterating a design and wish to save each stage. If I come up with something ugly but functional, I want to commit […]

How to do a git commit with a subject line and message body?

I want to improve the way I do git commits and I’ve been reading around the web. I followed the site here http://chris.beams.io/posts/git-commit/ and this lead me to https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Customizing-Git-Git-Configuration where I can set my default editor, but I still don’t understand how I edit the subject line separately from the body of the commit. I’m […]
