Slydders GIT cheatsheet

Here it is. The cheatsheet I always find handy when dealing with GIT.

setup the remote repository

chuck@Vacant [master] ~/Projects/splinked$ ssh chuck@Vacant [master] ~/Projects/splinked$ mkdir my_project.git chuck@Vacant [master] ~/Projects/splinked$ cd my_project.git chuck@Vacant [master] ~/Projects/splinked$ git init –bare chuck@Vacant [master] ~/Projects/splinked$ git-update-server-info chuck@Vacant [master] ~/Projects/splinked$ exit

On local machine

chuck@Vacant [master] ~/Projects/splinked$ cd my_project chuck@Vacant [master] ~/Projects/splinked$ git init chuck@Vacant [master] ~/Projects/splinked$ git add * chuck@Vacant [master] ~/Projects/splinked$ git commit -m “My initial commit message” chuck@Vacant [master] ~/Projects/splinked$ git remote add origin chuck@Vacant [master] ~/Projects/splinked$ git push -u origin master

Checkout from Subversion

 1. cd /path/to/git/localrepo
 2. svn mkdir --parents protocol:///path/to/repo/PROJECT/trunk -m "Importing git repo"
 3. git svn init protocol:///path/to/repo/PROJECT -s
 4. git svn fetch
 5. git rebase trunk
 5.1.  git status
 5.2.  git add (conflicted-files)
 5.3.  git rebase --continue
 5.4.  (repeat 5.1.)
 6. git svn dcommit

Hard Reset

When applying/popping a stash and everything just decides to dump on you then you may have no other option:

git reset --hard

.bashrc entries

Have your terminal prompt display what branch you are currently on in red.

function parse_git_branch_and_add_brackets {
  git branch --no-color 2> /dev/null | sed -e '/^[^*]/d' -e 's/* \(.*\)/\ \[\1\]/'
PS1="\[\e]0;\w\a\]\n\[\e[32m\]\u@\h\[\033[0;31m\]\$(parse_git_branch_and_add_brackets) \[\e[33m\]\w\[\e[0m\]\$ "

Generates a prompt such as:

chuck@Vacant [master] ~/Projects/splinked$ cd .. chuck@Vacant ~/Projects/splinked$
