Once it was resolved, I performed a git commit and this opened Vim with the default merge commit message. Thing is, this default […]

How to undo a Git rollback

I wanted to rollback to the last commit after making a massive error, but I managed to rollback a little too fair. The commit I wanted to reassert doesn’t appear when I enter ‘git log’ in bash (I suppose because it’s no longer in the history). Is there any way I can recover the last […]

How do I avoid committing small changes in git?

I’m wondering, how could I avoid a commit in really small changes of code. For instance, sometimes I miss a space between parameters or that kind of tiny code formatting. The reason I ask this is because later I have to push my commits to a remote repository and I don’t want to include those […]
