23 August 2017

These are the typical Git commands a developer would use in a bread-and-butter daily scenario through the development lifecycle.

Create "feature" branch

We are creating a new branch called "myBranch123" this branch will contain all our commits for this feature:

git checkout -b myBranch123

add changes

make changes to the code and add them:

git add --all


git commit -m "my commit message"

push new branch to origin

git push origin myBranch123

create a PR request or merge manually

create a PR request for your branch to be merged into the "develop" branch


git checkout develop
git merge myBranch123
git push

delete feature branch from origin

git push origin --delete myBranch123

delete feature branch from local

git branch -d myBranch123
