# git - Basic #
Git's usage seems to confuse a lot of people for some reason. I can kind
of see why because of the lingo used by hardcore developers, but this is
really all you need to know:
You've found a project on GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, etc. and you want to
grab a copy of the project:
git clone
You want to check for updates for this project:
cd "/path/to/project"
git pull
You started your own repository on GitLab and now want to start working
on your own project:
git clone
You've made changes to you project on your computer and want to sync those
changes to GitLab:
cd "/path/to/project"
git add .
git commit -m 'Write something short to summarize what you changed'
git push
*You may then be prompted for a username and a password
*If you plan on making a lot of really small changes and don't know
what to write, just do what I do and use:
git commit -m '...'
Oh crap! You made a big mistake and need to roll your project back to a
previous version:
git log --oneline
git reset #######
*List the commits made from day 1
*Reset to commit "#######" in which would look more like '0840a1c,'
or something like that.
You can also use 'reset' relatively:
git reset -2
*Goes back two commits
