I’m trying to understand some parts of the GIT graph in Eclipse. We’ll refer to commiters as G, A, R, J and K. In this case, we have two branches : master, and agfa (dev branch). Commit 5cc4355 : What does the green line means? It’s not a new branch, so I guess it means […]
I have some code I have not committed nor pushed to the branch I am working on on a local computer because the code is not working yet. However, I simply want to move that code from one computer to another without affecting the branch. How would I do so? For example, my code is […]
How to show all (git) commits than will be pushed within Netbeans ? Netbeans 7.3 simply pushes everything without showing a list of all commits first (like IntelliJ IDEA does).
Does git have any official syntax that can be inserted into commit messages to reference previous changesets? E.g.: Oops. Adding files accidentally missed out from #7557bd82e2d0c7335319392b4bcb178ce0b9620f Or does Git not bother defining these, and leaves that up to the tool that is used to display the messages (e.g. Github or Assembla)? In which case, does […]
Sorry, this maybe a stupid question, but I just couldn’t figure it out the problem. I have cloned a branch via git (bitbucket), changed some files, commited these and pushed them back to the remote origin. Now I want to push this commit to a different branch which is partly ahead and behind of the […]
I want to edit git history: change commit‘s authors (someone they’re marked incorrectly) etc. Is there any GUI for git, focused not on “pull & push” current commit, but on history editing? P.S. I use linux, so linux clients are preferrable, but i can start wine for it
Often when I’m finished writing a commit message in VIM, I type :Wq<ENTER> instead of :wq<ENTER> because I’m holding down the shift key to type the colon. This causes VIM to respond with E492: Not an editor command: Wq. This is all fine so far, I just retype :wq<ENTER> to save the commit message and […]
Is there any way to get a list of refs (including tags, branches, and remotes) that point to a particular commit in git?
When I go to commit changes to a branch using, git commit -a vim is opened and I go to insert my commit message. I get this warning in the terminal: W10: Warning: Changing a readonly file In order to continue with the commit, I have to force write using :x! in vim, but otherwise, […]
I am quite a newb regarding git and usually git commit, pull and push are the only commands I do. Recently noticed that my commits were set to a default name and email and wanted to change it. Stupidly I ran this which I found in a post somewhere: git filter-branch -f –env-filter “GIT_AUTHOR_NAME=’Newname’; GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL=’newemail’; […]
