Rebasing is a frequent task for anyone using git. We sometimes use rebasing to branch our code from the last changes or even just to drop commits from a branch.
Oftentimes when trying to push after a rebase, you’ll see something like the following:
hint: Updates were rejected because the tip of your current branch is behind hint: its remote counterpart. Integrate the remote changes (e.g. hint: 'git pull ...') before pushing again. hint: See the 'Note about fast-forwards' in 'git push --help' for details.
Commonly developers will use the
-f flags during a
push to force pushing code changes:
git push origin my-branch --force # or git push origin my-branch -f
I was recently surprised to find out that you could also prefix the branch name with
+ to force a push:
git push origin +my-branch
+ syntax is interesting but doesn’t seem intuitive so it’s not a practice I’d use, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t!
