Exercise on Remote Repository

  • Create a Remote Repository for Local Repository (Ecommerce app)
    git remote add <name-of-remote> <url>
    git remote add origin
    • Push the changes to Remote Repository
    git push <name-of-the-remote> <branch-name>
    git push origin master
    • Lets push other branches
    git push origin sprint-1
    git push origin sprint-2
  • Clone a Local Repository from existing remote repository
    git clone <url>
    git clone

How the Remote is Handled

  • Whenever a Remote Repo is added, new branches gets created in Local Repository. <Remote-name>/<branch-name> will be the name for the remote branch.

  • Sending the changes from local to Remote is Push

  • Getting the latest changes from Remote to local is Pull (Fetch + Merge)

Changing Hisory of commits

  • Use Interactive Rebasing.


  • To pick individual/sequence of commit(s) from one branch to other use cherry-pick
