Adding my .gitignore file so I can look it up in the future.
And then configure Git to use it globally by:
git config --global core.excludesfile ~/.gitignore
I created a branch that had the wrong ticket number and already pushed it to the repo, so I needed rename it and keep everything intact. Here’s how:
git branch -m old_branch new_branch # Rename branch locally
git push origin :old_branch # Delete the old branch
git push –set-upstream origin new_branch # Push the new branch, set local branch to track the new remote
