Git: Amend

ice_cube_gangster_fishing_at_first_i_was_likeHave you ever had this happen to you?

  1. You finish writing some awesome code.  You’re a bad ass and you know it.
  2. You hit the command line, because you stopped creating GUI interfaces using visual basic a long time ago.
  3. Issue a little “git add” here and there, add some broth, a potato.  Baby, you’ve got a stew going… So you commit!
  4. You do the habitual post-commit “git status” for no good reason and there it is, the file you friggen forgot to add to the commit you already committed to.

Fortunately git has a really convenient way to amend to your last commit!  Just simply stage the file(s) you missed and run:

git commit --amend
