Git Tips (Rough Draft)
$ ls -al ~/.ssh # Lists the files in your .ssh directory, if they exist $ ssh-keygen -t rsa -C "email@example.com" # Creates a new ssh key, using the provided email as a label Generating public/private rsa key pair. # Enter file in which to save the key (/c/Users/you/.ssh/id_rsa): [Press enter] Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): [Type a passphrase] # Enter same passphrase again: [Type passphrase again] Your identification has been saved in /c/Users/you/.ssh/id_rsa. # Your public key has been saved in /c/Users/you/.ssh/id_rsa.pub. # The key fingerprint is: # 01:0f:f4:3b:ca:85:d6:17:a1:7d:f0:68:9d:f0:a2:db firstname.lastname@example.org # start the ssh-agent in the background $ ssh-agent -s # Agent pid 59566 $ ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa
On Windows to run ssh-agent
$ eval $(ssh-agent) > /dev/null $ ssh-add ~/ssh/id_rsa Enter passphrase for /c/Users/Torrijos/.ssh/id_rsa: Identity added: /c/Users/Torrijos/.ssh/id_rsa (/c/Users/Torrijos/.ssh/id_rsa)
This will allow you to perform remote operations with Bitbucket, or any other remote service, without having to enter your private key passphrase everytime.
$ git config --list user.name=Scott Chacon email@example.com color.status=auto color.branch=auto color.interactive=auto color.diff=auto ... # Shows a list of config settings
Set name and email
$ git config --global user.name "John Doe" $ git config --global user.email firstname.lastname@example.org
Configure Line Ending
$ git remote origin upstream
View remote urls
$ git config --get remote.origin.url email@example.com:localrepo/development-wiki.git/wiki $ git config --get remote.upstream.url firstname.lastname@example.org:remoterepo/development-wiki.git/wiki
Add remote url
$ git remote add origin email@example.com:remoterepo/development-wiki.git/wiki # Set a new remote $ git remote -v # Verify new remote origin firstname.lastname@example.org:localrepo/development-wiki.git/wiki (fetch) origin email@example.com:localrepo/development-wiki.git/wiki (push) upstream firstname.lastname@example.org:remoterepo/development-wiki.git/wiki (fetch) upstream email@example.com:remoterepo/development-wiki.git/wiki (push)
Change remote url
$ git remote rename origin destination # Change remote name from 'origin' to 'destination' $ git remote set-url origin firstname.lastname@example.org:USERNAME/REPOSITORY2.git # Change the url for an existing remote

Updating Local branch
From local branch
$ git pull --rebase upstream develop # Rewrites current branch to match remote and replay your local changes on top $ git pull --rebase -s recursive -X theirs upstream develop # Does the same except any conflicts favors your local branch's changes # Thus you may lose changes from the remote using this.
Sometimes you may need to abort a rebase:
$ git rebase --abort
or a merge
$ git merge --abort
When merging another branch onto your current branch, it may be good to merge all changes into one commit
$ git merge --squash otherbranch
$ git commit -m 'Consolidated commits from other branch'
In case of merge conflicts you can also use:
$ git merge -s recursive -X ours otherbranch or $ git merge --squash -s recursive -X ours otherbranch # This favors your current branch's changes rather than the other branch.
For actually resolving merge and rebase conflicts, open the repository with a git GUI application, i.e. Git Extensions, Atlassian SourceTree, etc.
Launch the merge tool, KDiff or Perforce P4 Merge to resolve conflicts.
Update Remote Branch List On Local
To get a copy of branch list on remote
$ git fetch or
$ git fetch upstream
If you are sure that remote server repo contains more branches and they are not shown when you type
$ git branch -a
$ git branch -r
Then you have to update your remote list, by:
$ git remote update upstream --prune
Assuming your remote is named as upstream (This is true most of times).
for brname in `git branch -r | grep upstream | grep -v master | grep -v HEAD | sed -e 's/upstream\///'`; do echo $brname upstream/$brname; git branch --track $brname upstream/$brname; done
Once you have created a local branch corresponding to each upstream branch. Update your fork (origin)
$ git push --all origin
(origin being your fork): that supposes that: you have all the local branches tracking all the upstream branches (see previous step). Otherwise, you would push only one local branch by default, since a clone would create only one local branch (the default one) you haven’t pushed commits of your own on those branches.
$ git push --prune origin
