Here I try to put up some of the usefull git commands. Refer to it whenever quick check is needed.
If we need to copy the repository to a new repository then it can be simply pushed while staying at the source repository. For example we have an old-repo and we want to copy its contents to new-repo.
- Create a new-repo (in github for example)
- cd to your local copy of the old-repo you want to extract from, which is set up to track the new-project branch that will become the new-repo’s master
$ git push https://github.com/accountname/new-repo.git +new-project:master
if you have to enter ssh keys then the step-3 should be done in a following way:
$ git push firstname.lastname@example.org:accountname/new-repo +new-project:master
If you don’t want to make a complications regarding to branches and projects then simply
$ git push https://github.com/accountname/new-repo.git master would work too.
Push Into Branch
First of all we have to find out what branch is the active one right now, to do that
git branch command can be used. The result will be something like:
- branch1 branch2 branch3 branch4
* sing stands for current branch.
- To create a branch
git branch <branchName>
- To delete a branch
git branch -d <branchName>
- To force delete a branch
git branch -D <branchName>
- To rename current branch to newBranchName
git branch -m <newBranchName>
- List all remote branches
git branch -a
- to push current branch to the branchName
git push origin branchName
