Git is one of the most popular version control systems in the world. Since its release more than 11 years ago it became a must have for web development specialists and web development agencies alike. Here is a list of very handy Git commands which you can use for app development or web development:

 

Setting details

git config --global user.name "John Doe" git config --global user.email john@example.com Use --global to set the configuration for all projects. If git config is used without --global and run inside a project directory, the settings are set for the specific project.

 

Ignoring file modes

cd project/ git config core.filemode false This option is useful if the file permissions are not important to us, for example when we are on Windows.

 

See current settings

git config –list

 

Clone a remote repository

git clone https://github.com/username/somerepo.git This creates a new directory with the name of the repository.

 

Get help for a specific command

git help clone

Pull in the Latest from a Shared Repository

# Add a remote branch git remote add # Get changes from that branch git fetch
