Similarly, how do I update my branch with master?

1 Answer

  1. Checkout each branch: git checkout b1.
  2. Then merge: git merge origin/master.
  3. Then push: git push origin b1.
  4. With rebase use the following commands: git fetch. git rebase origin/master.

Subsequently, question is, how do I pull changes from remote master to local branch? In a nutshell:

  1. git merge branchname takes new commits from the branch branchname , and adds them to the current branch.
  2. git rebase branchname takes new commits from the branch branchname , and inserts them "under" your changes.
  3. git pull is basically the same as git fetch; git merge origin/master .

Keeping this in view, how do I merge changes from master to branch?

First we run git checkout master to change the active branch back to master. Then we run the command git merge new-branch to merge the new feature into the master branch. Note that git merge merges the specified branch into the currently active branch. So we need to be on the branch that we are merging into.

What is difference between Merge and rebase?

git — Rebase vs Merge. Rebasing and merging are both designed to integrate changes from one branch into another branch but in different ways. When you do rebase a feature branch onto master, you move the base of the feature branch to master branch's ending point. Merging adds a new commit to your history.
