Version control using git

git is a powerful way to version control your design and one of the key reason we started atopile. If you don't know about git, we strongly recommend learning it. There is a high chance you will end up loving it.

Get stuff from the server / sync

git fetch origin git pull

Make a new branch

git checkout -b <branch-name>

git checkout -b <branch-name> <from-branch>

eg. git checkout -b mawildoer/new-feature origin/main

Save some work


git add <whatever-you-wanna-save>

git add . -- save everything I've changed (including perhaps things we forgot to .gitignore)


git commit

git commit -m "<message-here>"

Push it back for everyone else

git push works if you didn't spec a "from" branch in git checkout -b ...

git push -u origin HEAD always works
