GitHub Cheat-sheet

While moving my code to GitHub I’ve made short list of commands one needs know to get going with git and GitHub. To get started, I’ve found this short tutorial useful.

To add an existing file to version control.

git add "filename"

To commit a change with message “message”

git commit -m "message"

To create a branch

git checkout  -b "branch-name"

To switch between branches

git checkout "branch name"

To see current active branch and list of existing branches

git branch

To push changes back to the server

git push origin "branchname"

To update a branch

git pull origin "branchname"


That’s it for now. It is enough to begin to work with GitHub. The list of commands will grow with my experience.
