List of Useful Git Commands

Here are some everyday Git commands:

git status

Check the status of your Git

git checkout

Check the checkouts.

git remote -v

See what remotes are defined. If you did a Git clone these remotes will already be specified.

[email protected] bitcoin-spread]$ git remote -v

origin (fetch)

origin (push)

git remote add origin 

You only use the above and if you don’t remotes already

git branch -r

[[email protected] bitcoin-spread]$ git branch -r

  origin/HEAD -> origin/master


Git Fetch and Git Pull are particularly useful if you’re working on localhost and then you want to sync with a remote server. First commit and push on localhost, and then fetch and pull on remote server.

[[email protected] bitcoin-spread]$ git fetch
