Useful Git Snippets

May 7, 2023 note-to-self

Bring back a deleted file, after it's been committed and pushed: git checkout <deletion commit hash>~1 -- <filename>

Pull without going thru all the SSL self-signed BS but also not permanently overriding it. I used this a few times on a client network with a self-signed cert in the chain but no time to update the chain: git -c http.sslVerify=false pull

Another way: GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY=true git push --tags (--tags is optional, I needed it for that)

Get the most recent log entry: git log -1

Remove local branches no longer on the remote: git fetch --prune or git remote prune origin (check; this doesn't seem to always work)

Compare:<sha or branch or tag>...<sha or branch or tag> ```
