Git, and how to use it

Git situations for newbies

  • git checkout master
  • git pull
  • git checkout -b myFakeBranch
  • make your code changes
  • git add automation/fake-file.js (you've made changes to it)
  • commit -m 'my fake commit message'
  • git pull origin master (it will pull the latest from master)
  • if there are changes, you will be prompted with a merge message. Hold SHIFT and double press letter Z (this will merge changes from master)
  • git push
  • you will be prompted with the command to create upstream to origin. Just copy paste and run it

Done deal, now you can go to your GitHub repository and create a pull request
