Of course, it is also possible to undo the commit, but keep the changes to the files in the index or the staging area so that you are ready to recreate the commit with, for example, some minor modifications.
We'll still use the example of the
hello world repository. Make a fresh clone of the repository, or reset the
master branch if you have already cloned one.
Create a fresh clone as follows:
$ git clone https://github.com/dvaske/hello_world_cookbook.git $ cd hello_world_cookbook
We can reset the existing clone as follows:
$ cd hello_world_cookbook $ git checkout master $ git reset --hard origin master HEAD is now at 3061dc6 Adds Java version of 'hello world'
