git stash – How to Save Your Changes Temporarily

The “git stash” command can help you to (temporarily but safely) store your uncommitted local changes – and leave you with a clean working copy.

If you have to switch context – e.g. because you need to work on an urgent bug – you need to get these changes out of the way. You shouldn’t just commit them, of course, because it’s unfinished work.

This is where “git stash” comes in handy:

$ git stash
Saved working directory and index state WIP on master:
2ade883 Implement signup form
HEAD is now at 2ade883 Implement signup form

Your working copy is now clean – all uncommitted local changes have been saved on this kind of “clipboard” .

You’re ready to start your new tasks i.e. for example by pulling changes from remote or simply switching branches.

Continuing Where You Left

The “pop” flag will reapply the last saved state and, at the same time, delete its representation on the Stash.

$ git stash pop

I hope this will help !!!

Git commit deadlock – uncommitted change would be overwritten by merge

Problem:

When I was trying to Sync the changes after Commit using VS 2013 Git I got error message

“An error occurred. Detailed message: 1 uncommitted change would be
overwritten by merge”

and Pull action is cancelled.

So I tried to find out the solution for the error and found that:

This error comes when there are Untracked files that were not part of the local Commit, but are part of the remote Pull; the merge resolution cannot deal with this scenario.

Solution :

  1. View the Team Explorer > Changes dialogue.
  2. Verify that any Untracked files that actually reside in the server branch are to be included in your Commits; to do this, right-click and select Add. Alternatively, if you intend them to be overwritten, you can select Delete.
  3. Perform a Commit, and then a Pull, and perform any merge conflict resolution that is required.
  4. Perform a Push to update your Remote repository.

Hope this will help !!!
