Changes in working directory:
$ git status
Changes to tracked files:
$ git diff
See changes/difference of a specific file:
$ git diff <file>
Add all current changes to the next commit:
$ git add .
Add some changes in <file> to the next commit:
$ git add -p <file>
Add only the mentioned files to the next commit:
$ git add <filename1> <filename2>
Commit all local changes in tracked files:
$ git commit -a

$ git branch -r
Switch HEAD branch:
$ git checkout <branch>
Checkout single file from different branch
$ git checkout <branch> -- <filename>
Create and switch new branch:
$ git checkout -b <branch>
Switch to the previous branch, without saying the name explicitly:
$ git checkout -
Create a new branch from an exiting branch and switch to new branch:
$ git checkout -b <new_branch> <existing_branch>

Checkout and create a new branch from existing commit

$ git checkout <commit-hash> -b <new_branch_name>
Create a new branch based on your current HEAD:
$ git branch <new-branch>
Create a new tracking branch based on a remote branch:
$ git branch --track <new-branch> <remote-branch>
Delete a local branch:
$ git branch -d <branch>
Rename current branch to new branch name
$ git branch -m <new_branch_name>
Force delete a local branch:

You will lose unmerged changes!

$ git branch -D <branch>
Apply specific commit from another branch:
git cherry-pick <commit hash>
Mark HEAD with a tag:
$ git tag <tag-name>
Mark HEAD with a tag and open the editor to include a message:

Merge & Rebase

Merge branch into your current HEAD:
$ git merge <branch>

List merged branches

$ git branch --merged
Rebase your current HEAD onto <branch>:

Don't rebase published commit!

$ git rebase <branch>
Abort a rebase:
$ git rebase --abort
Continue a rebase after resolving conflicts:
$ git rebase --continue
Use your editor to manually solve conflicts and (after resolving) mark file as resolved:
$ git add <resolved-file>
$ git rm <resolved-file>
Squashing commits:
$ git rebase -i <commit-just-before-first>

Now replace this,

pick <commit_id>
pick <commit_id2>
pick <commit_id3>

to this,

pick <commit_id>
squash <commit_id2>
squash <commit_id3>



Discard all local changes in your working directory:
$ git reset --hard HEAD
Get all the files out of the staging area(i.e. undo the last git add):
$ git reset HEAD
Discard local changes in a specific file:
$ git checkout HEAD <file>
Revert a commit (by producing a new commit with contrary changes):
$ git revert <commit>
Reset your HEAD pointer to a previous commit and discard all changes since then:
$ git reset --hard <commit>
Reset your HEAD pointer to a remote branch current state.
$ git reset --hard <remote/branch> e.g., upstream/master, origin/my-feature
Reset your HEAD pointer to a previous commit and preserve all changes as unstaged changes:
$ git reset <commit>
Reset your HEAD pointer to a previous commit and preserve uncommitted local changes:
