Book Description

Since its inception, Git has attracted skilled developers due to its robust, powerful, and reliable features. Its incredibly fast branching ability transformed a piece of code from a niche tool for former Linux Kernel developers into a mainstream distributed versioning system. Like most powerful tools, Git can be hard to approach since it has a lot of commands, subcommands, and options that easily confuse newcomers. The main purpose of Git Essentials is to help you overcome this fear and become adept at all basic tasks in Git. This book starts with an introduction to version control systems, and after this you'll delve deeply into the essentials of Git. This serves as a primer for the topics to follow such as branching and merging, creating and managing a GitHub personal repository, and fork and pull requests. You will then learn the art of cherry-picking, taking only commits you like, followed by Git blame. Finally, you'll learn how to migrate from SVN using Git tools or TortoiseGit and migrate from other VCSs, concluding with a collection of resources, links, and appendices.

What You Will Learn

  • Create, branch, and merge a local repository
  • Transport your work to a remote repository working in a centralized manner
  • Organize your source code using feature branches
  • Organize the development flow
  • Get a meaningful changelog using clear commit messages
  • Collaborate with teammates without any impediments
  • Experiment with your code without affecting functional code files
  • Explore some tools used to migrate to Git from other versioning systems without losing your development history
  • Extend your knowledge of Git with some useful resources
