I’m in my local computer’s master branch of a cloned master-branch of a repo from a remote server.
I updated a file, and I want to revert back to the original version from the remote master branch.
How can I do this?
Assuming you did not commit the file, or add it to the index, then:
git checkout -- filename
Assuming you added it to the index, but did not commit it, then:
git reset HEAD filename git checkout -- filename
Assuming you did commit it, then:
git checkout origin/master filename
Assuming you want to blow away all commits from your branch (VERY DESTRUCTIVE):
git reset --hard origin/master
