How to do a git rebase

206 words • 2 min read

Steps to rebase your current working branch with master

  • git checkout master

  • git pull origin master

  • git checkout YOUR_BRANCH

  • git rebase master

  • Fix conflicts if there are any.

  • If there are conflicts at this stage, and you've fixed them, you can run git rebase --continue to complete the rebase, or if you want to abort the rebase you can run git rebase --abort

  • Finally force push to the origin of your branch. Here we are doing force push because essentially we are changing the history of our commits when we do the rebase

  • git push -f origin YOUR_BRANCH

  • All your commits should be rebased with the commits in master branch now

Here is a video about rebasing in a a slightly different technique, which can be used if you have a lot of conflicts.
