How best to show changes from a number of commits using GIT

+1 vote

Perhaps my git workflow is wrong.

I have committed numerous times in order to complete a task, but when the code is to be reviewed, Id like to show a non-contiguous view of my changes, which do not include the commits other developers have made. Is this possible?

Or should I be creating a branch and showing the differences from the master and my branch when it comes to a code review?

You have interleaved your changes with others on master? If so, yes,you should have done on a branch.
You can cherrypick them all to a branch, and rebase master... but probably noone will thank you for that :-)

If you just want to show the commits. Not "do something" with them, and you have set up "git config" with the " [1]" set, then you might see what:

git log --author=lewis

gives you. Replace "lewis" with the appropriate string from the [2]. Hopefully you set that up.

I have two branch in one repository that I need to maintain for 2 different deliveries.
Say branch1 and branch2 in test.git repo.

- branch1
- branch2

branch1 is developers branch all source looks version'ed manner and branch2 is superset for branch1, example foo_v1 and foo_v2 are the directories in branch1 where developer will update the latest one here foo_v2 and branch2 foo is same as the latest one of branch1 for an instance.

Suppose developer send 10 patches on branch1 where are changes in terms of _/ then I need to apply on my local repo branch1, till now is fine then I need to apply same 10 patches on to my branch2 where source tree which is quite question here how can I do.

I'm having difficulty understanding how I should use git when I have multiple independent changes in a project. I have a local git repository for various windows & linux machines and I work on different parts of the project on different machines. The situation I have is that I am part way through some changes on one part of the project. On the same machine, I have made some quick changes to another part of the project and I would like to commit those changes and push them to the origin, _without_ having to commit the other changes that I am still working on. Surprisingly, I don't seem to be able to do this with git.

  • I can commit the completed changes without committing the uncompleted changes ok.
  • If I try to push the changes, git complains that I have unstaged changes and I should do a local merge.
  • I can't even seem do a local merge without pulling other changes from the origin.

So now I've ended up with part-finished changes on the master. Not what I wanted! What should I be doing here?

One practice of using git to have one feature per branch.

Let's say a developer has worked on many small features in many branches. Then he sends one pull request to the central (not controlled by him) for each feature he has developed. While he is waiting for all the features be merged into the central repository, he needs to use all these feature locally.

To do so, he may need to merge the changes in these branches to his local master branch. But this can be tedious when he has many branches.

Is there a way to somehow setup a branch so whenever something is committed to the branch, the changes will also be simultaneously committed to the local master branch? By this way, the develop can avoid having to merge changes from many branches.
