Using git stash
In this example, we explore the
git stash command and learn how we can use it to quickly put away uncommitted changes and retrieve these again. This can be useful when being interrupted with an urgent task and you are not yet ready to commit the work you currently have in your working directory. With the
git stash command, you save the state of your current working directory with/without a staging area and restore a clean state of the working tree.
In this example, we'll use the
cookbook-tips-tricks repository. We'll use the
master branch, but before we are ready to try the
stash command, we need to create some changes in the working directory and the staging area:
$ git clone https://github.com/dvaske/cookbook-tips-tricks.git ...
