Generate Patches

git add some_file
git commit -m "Commit message that will show in patch."
git format-patch -1

Undo Last Commit

Suppose the following incremental patches from A to B:

to delete C, one would issue:

git reset --hard HEAD~1

the result is the following:

another git reset –hard HEAD~1 would yield:

Roll Back to Commit ID

git reset --hard e484904

or for SHA:

git reset --hard 3f786850e387550fdab836ed7e6dc881de23001b


Rebasing is good when local changes are not important enough to be merged into the main development branch. The procedure is as follows:

  • Clone the repository and switch to your new branch, let's say the new branch should be mybranch and assume that the parent branch is named master:
git clone -b mybranch
  • Next, you can make the changes to the code, and apply any patches you wish.
  • Issue:
git config --global --bool pull.rebase true

to globally turn on rebasing.

  • On the next pull, with git pull repo master, the changes should be merged in and your patches applied on top of the pull, effectively merging the changes.

Set Name and E-mail

git config --global "John Doe"
git config --global

Ignore Local Changes

If you get the following error when doing a git pull:

Please, commit your changes or stash them before you can merge.

and you do not want to stash the changes, simply issue:

git reset --hard
git pull

to overwrite any local changes.
