The git checkout command lets you navigate between the branches created by git branch. Checking out a branch updates the files in the working directory to match the version stored in that branch, and it tells Git to record all new commits on that branch.
#Check out the specified branch, which should have already been created with git branch git checkout #create and checkout new branch git checkout -b
The git checkout command serves three distinct functions:
- checking out files
- checking out commits
- checking out branches
#Check out a previous version of a file. git checkout #Update all files in the working directory to match the specified commit. You can use either a commit hash or a tag as the argument. git checkout
