Git - Adding a Tracking Branch
GitLab - Adding a Tracking Branch
- Learn how to add a local branch that tracks a remote branch.
The branches starting with remotes/origin are branches from the original repo. Notice that you don’t have a branch called greet anymore, but it knows that the original repo had a greet branch.
- Add a local branch that tracks a remote branch.
git branch --track greet origin/greet git branch -a git hist --max-count=2
We can now see the greet branch in the branch list and in the log.
