I pulled a project from GitHub a few days ago. I’ve since discovered that there are several forks on GitHub, and I neglected to note which one I took originally. How can I determine which of those forks I pulled?
If you want only the remote URL, or if your are not connected to a network that can reach the remote repo:
git config --get remote.origin.url
If you require full output and you are on a network that can reach the remote repo where the origin resides :
git remote show origin
git clone (from GitHub, or any source repository for that matter) the default name for the source of the clone is “origin”. Using
git remote show will display the information about this remote name. The first few lines should show:
C:UsersjaredparVsVim> git remote show origin * remote origin Fetch URL: [email protected]:jaredpar/VsVim.git Push URL: [email protected]:jaredpar/VsVim.git HEAD branch: master Remote branches:
If you want to use the value in the script, you would use the first command listed in this answer.
