Git is the most popular version control system as we all know all and used to track and share code between team members but here is our swiss army knife of git commands useful whenever you want them available handy

git init Initializes a git repository – creates the initial ‘.git’ directory in a new or in an existing project.

git clone Makes a Git repository copy from a remote source. Also adds the original location as a remote so you can fetch from it again and push to it if you have permissions.

git add Adds files changes in your working directory to your index.

git rm Removes files from your index and your working directory so they will not be tracked.

git commit Takes all of the changes written in the index, creates a new commit object pointing to it and sets the branch to point to that new commit.

git merge Merges one or more branches into your current branch and automatically creates a new commit if there are no conflicts.
