git clone https://github.com/[username]/[repository]
Cloning will automatically set the original repo as the remote with the name 'origin'.
When multiple users push to a repo, permission problems can arise. Creating
the repo via
git init --shared repoName
might solve that.
If the repo already exists, this will make sure new files will have the right group:
chmod -R g+s refs/ objects/
Allow pushing to a non-bare repo:
git config receive.denyCurrentBranch ignore
From git 2.3 on this is supported:
git config receive.denyCurrentBranch updateInstead
git add -A; git commit -m "I did some changes";git push https://github.com/[username]/[repository]
Pushing will not update the working directory. To do so, you have to run
this command in the working directory of the remote repo:
git reset --hard. An alternative would be git checkout -f master (If master is the current branch).
git pull https://github.com/[username]/[repository]
Add a remote
git remote add someRemote /path/to/some/repo/
Fetch from a remote
git fetch someRemote
What changed in the remote?
git log master..someRemote/master
I use this to see the oldest new commits first and see what changed:
git log -p --reverse master..c-af/master
When one of fetched commits is alright and you want to merge it
into your repo:
git rebase <hash_of_the_commit>
(git commit would also work but cause merge commits)
