Basic Git Commands
Tech Tips | June 01, 2018
This is a basic list of frequently used (by me) Git commands.
- Tracked - any file already in the repository or staged in the index.
- Ignored - any file that is declared invisible or ignored in the repository though present in the working directory.
- Untracked - any file that is neither tracked nor ignored.
