Using git to solve problems locally before checking in

by Topper on April 22nd, 2008

Wow… I just had a great git experience.

I had gone down a track of development that was critical for something I’m doing. I ran into a bug that I couldn’t solve without reverting tons of files. Oh oh in subversion land… especially after checking in all those changes.

However, with git it’s easy. I checked out a new branch. Reverted all the files I needed. I could compare log results between two branches without even so much as shutting down the server. Found out exactly what was happening. Did a git checkout back to master and booya… all is right in my master branch. As soon as it’s all working great: I just send it back up to the server and my team has got it.

W00t git.
