This may be a duplicate of How to keep a git branch in sync with master (I assume I can just replace Master with the other branch), but it's vital that this works and doesn't merge the wrong way around so I need to make sure.
There was a branch called
v1, and I created a branch off of that called
v1_adminui. I've made around 10 commits to my branch
v1_adminui, but a major improvement to another part of the project has been made in
v1, so I want to Sync that change with my current branch.
I believe the following would do it:
git checkout v1 git pull git checkout v1_adminui git merge v1
Please can you confirm if this is correct? If not, any help would be appreciated on how to accomplish this.
Since you are the only one working on this branch, you should use
rebase instead of
# Get the base branch git checkout v1 # Pull in any changes to make sure you have the latest version git pull # Check out your branch git checkout v1_adminui # Rebase your changes on top of the v1 changes git rebase v1 # Optionally push your rebased branch git push origin v1_adminui
You might have to use the
--force option when pushing in the last step. Since you're rewriting the branch's history with the rebase, the remote branch will have a different history. Only do this if no-one else is using this branch!
