Discover the power of Git Stash! "Git Stash temporarily saves your changes without committing.

Published Jul 11, 2024
๐ ๐ข๐ญ ๐ฌ๐ญ๐š๐ฌ๐ก is a Git command that allows developers to save changes in their working directory without committing them. This is particularly useful when you are in the middle of working on a feature or a bug fix, and you need to switch to another branch, pull changes from a remote repository, or perform other operations that require a clean working directory.
๐ ๐ข๐ญ ๐ฌ๐ญ๐š๐ฌ๐ก is a powerful command in a developerโ€™s arsenal, especially in dynamic development environments where tasks can change rapidly. It facilitates a smooth workflow by allowing developers to manage and switch between different tasks without the need for unnecessary commits. When used judiciously, git stash contributes to a more organized and efficient version control process in DevOps workflows.
Suppose a developer is working on a feature in a branch and he needs to pull changes from some other developerโ€™s branch or if he has to work urgently on some other feature, but the feature he is currently working on is incomplete. In this case, you cannot commit the partial code of the currently working feature. To add this new feature, you have to remove your current changes and store them somewhere else. For this type of situation, Git offers a very useful command known as ๐ ๐ข๐ญ ๐ฌ๐ญ๐š๐ฌ๐ก. ๐ ๐ข๐ญ ๐ฌ๐ญ๐š๐ฌ๐ก command saves the previously written code and then returns to the last commit for a fresh start. Now you can add the new feature without disturbing the old one as it is saved locally. After committing to the new feature you can go on with working on the old feature which was incomplete and uncommitted.

    Developers can stash changes that are not ready to be committed but need to be set aside temporarily. This is common when interrupted by urgent tasks or when transitioning between different tasks

    Before switching branches, developers can stash changes to avoid conflicts. This is helpful when working on multiple features simultaneously or when switching to a branch with ongoing development.

    Before pulling changes from a remote repository, itโ€™s a good practice to stash local changes to prevent conflicts. After pulling changes, developers can apply the stash to reapply their work.

    During a merge or rebase operation, conflicts may arise. Stashing changes allows developers to resolve conflicts more easily and cleanly.

    Stashing can be used to create clean, logically separated commits. Developers can stash changes, commit the current state, and then apply the stash to continue working.

  • Always stash changes in a clean working directory to avoid conflicts during the stash application.
  • Provide meaningful stash messages for clarity when reviewing stashes later.
  • Regularly check and manage your stashes to avoid unnecessary clutter.
