Git: Syncing fork repo against upstream repo

In case you need to make sure your forked repo is up-to-date with the original repo (i.e. /git/original/HelloWorld vs /git/anton/HelloWorld), here’s what you need to do in your terminal:


$ git remote -v
$ git remote add upstream git@git.url.io:original/HelloWorld.git
$ git remote -v
$ git fetch upstream
$ git checkout master
$ git merge upstream/master
$ git merge upstream/master
