GitLab - Navigating Branches

  • Goals
    Learn how to navigate between the branches of a repository

We now have two branches in our project:

git hist --all
  • Switch to the Master Branch
    Just use the git checkout command to switch between branches.
git checkout master
cat src/hello.c

We are now on the master branch. We can tell because the hello.c file doesn’t use the Greeter function.

  • Switch Back to the Greet Branch.
git checkout greet
cat src/hello.c

The contents of the src/hello.c confirms we are back on the greet branch.
