force manual merge gitWhen I run git mergetool So I suppose I can do it only if I have conflicts. It can decide to make a specific change that I don't like. I want to approve all changes before they are made. I need to verify ALL conflicts manually if fast-forward is not possible. It is meant to be used to supersedeNote that this is differentA proper answer to this question I found here: In this way it walks you through each part of what would have been the automatic merge process and instead asks for manual arbitration on which bits and pieces you want to accept from the mergefrom branch. Here's an example of what it looked like in my project: Here are the options: J - leave this hunk undecided, see next hunk. K - leave this hunk undecided, see previous hunkSo I chose e and was given a file to edit. I was pleased when I noticed there were even instructions at the bottom on how to edit the hunk properly. You can even split hunks into smaller ones with the s option as above. The difference is that you get to oversee every merge 'hunk' and edit them as you please. I hope this helps future readers. Someone might know how to make this approach work, for example if there is a merge strategy that treats every change as a conflict. Please comment if you find a way to do this. It would be more tedious but perhaps better suited to some people. Please be sure to answer the question. Provide details and share your research.

Patches, suggestions and comments are welcome.Since Git makes it easy to merge another branch multiple times, it means that you can have a very long lived branch but you can keep it up to date as you go, solving small conflicts often, rather than be surprised by one enormous conflict at the end of the series. Unlike some other version control systems, Git does not try to be overly clever about merge conflict resolution. Git’s philosophy is to be smart about determining when a merge resolution is unambiguous, but if there is a conflict, it does not try to be clever about automatically resolving it. Therefore, if you wait too long to merge two branches that diverge quickly, you can run into some issues. We’ll also cover some of the different, non-standard types of merges you can do, as well as see how to back out of merges that you’ve done. If you have work in progress, either commit it to a temporary branch or stash it. This makes it so that you can undo anything you try here. If you have unsaved changes in your working directory when you try a merge, some of these tips may help you preserve that work. We have a super simple Ruby file that prints hello world. Then we change the line “hello world” to “hello mundo”. CONFLICT (content): Merge conflict in hello.rb. Automatic merge failed; fix conflicts and then commit the result. First, let’s cover how to get out of this situation. If you perhaps weren’t expecting conflicts and don’t want to quite deal with the situation yet, you can simply back out of the merge with git merge --abort. The only cases where it may not be able to do this perfectly would be if you had unstashed, uncommitted changes in your working directory when you ran it, otherwise it should work fine. Remember that any uncommitted work will be lost, so make sure you don’t want any of your changes. We know this because the case is simple, but it’s also pretty easy to tell in real cases when looking at the conflict because every line is removed on one side and added again on the other. By default, Git sees all of these lines as being changed, so it can’t merge the files. If you see that you have a lot of whitespace issues in a merge, you can simply abort it and do it again, this time with -Xignore-all-space or -Xignore-space-change. The first option ignores whitespace completely when comparing lines, the second treats sequences of one or more whitespace characters as equivalent. Merge made by the 'recursive' strategy.As an example, let’s pretend that Git could not handle the whitespace change and we needed to do it by hand. So how would we do that? Then we want to get copies of my version of the file, their version (from the branch we’re merging in) and the common version (from where both sides branched off). Then we want to fix up either their side or our side and re-try the merge again for just this single file. Git stores all of these versions in the index under “stages” which each have numbers associated with them.In fact, this actually works better than the ignore-space-change option because this actually fixes the whitespace changes before merge instead of simply ignoring them. In the ignore-space-change merge, we actually ended up with a few lines with DOS line endings, making things mixed. Let’s go through them all. In this and the following example, we have to use -b to strip out the whitespace because we’re comparing it to what is in Git, not our cleaned up hello.theirs.rb file. Removing hello.ours.rb. Removing hello.theirs.rb For this example, we have two longer lived branches that each have a few commits in them but create a legitimate content conflict when merged. If we try to merge the mundo branch in, we get a conflict. CONFLICT (content): Merge conflict in hello.rb. Automatic merge failed; fix conflicts and then commit the result. If we open up the file, we’ll see something like this: Perhaps it’s not obvious how exactly you should fix this conflict. You need more context. This will re-checkout the file again and replace the merge conflict markers. This can be useful if you want to reset the markers and try to resolve them again. If you pass it diff3, Git will use a slightly different version of conflict markers, not only giving you the “ours” and “theirs” versions, but also the “base” version inline to give you more context. This can help you get context on what may have contributed to the conflicts. Reviewing a little bit of history to remember why two lines of development were touching the same area of code can be really helpful sometimes. If we add the --merge option to git log, it will only show the commits in either side of the merge that touch a file that’s currently conflicted. This can be really helpful in quickly giving you the context you need to help understand why something conflicts and how to more intelligently resolve it. This can be helpful to see what you still have to resolve. The first column shows you if that line is different (added or removed) between the “ours” branch and the file in your working directory and the second column does the same between the “theirs” branch and your working directory copy. This can be useful to review before committing the resolution. Git will output this format if you run git show on a merge commit, or if you add a --cc option to a git log -p (which by default only shows patches for non-merge commits). Merge: f1270f7 e3eb223. Author: Scott Chacon One of the great things about working with Git is that it’s okay to make mistakes, because it’s possible (and in many cases easy) to fix them. Let’s say you started work on a topic branch, accidentally merged it into master, and now your commit history looks like this: Here’s a quick refresher: reset --hard usually goes through three steps: In this case, we want to move master to where it was before the merge commit ( C6 ). Check out The Perils of Rebasing for more on what can happen; the short version is that if other people have the commits you’re rewriting, you should probably avoid reset. This approach also won’t work if any other commits have been created since the merge; moving the refs would effectively lose those changes. Git calls this operation a “revert”, and in this particular scenario, you’d invoke it like this: When you invoke a merge into HEAD ( git merge topic ), the new commit has two parents: the first one is HEAD ( C6 ), and the second is the tip of the branch being merged in ( C4 ).What’s worse, if you add work to topic and merge again, Git will only bring in the changes since the reverted merge: There are other ways to merge branches together however. Let’s cover a few of them quickly. We’ve already seen the ignore-all-space and ignore-space-change options which are passed with a -X but we can also tell Git to favor one side or the other when it sees a conflict. If you would prefer for Git to simply choose a specific side and ignore the other side instead of letting you manually resolve the conflict, you can pass the merge command either a -Xours or -Xtheirs. Any differences that are mergeable, it will merge. Any differences that conflict, it will simply choose the side you specify in whole, including binary files. CONFLICT (content): Merge conflict in hello.rb. Resolved 'hello.rb' using previous resolution. Automatic merge failed; fix conflicts and then commit the result. Merge made by the 'recursive' strategy.However, all the other non-conflicting changes on that branch are merged successfully in. This is different from the “ours” recursive merge option. It will record a new merge commit with both branches as parents, but it will not even look at the branch you’re merging in. It will simply record as the result of the merge the exact code in your current branch. For example, say you branched off a release branch and have done some work on it that you will want to merge back into your master branch at some point. In the meantime some bugfix on master needs to be backported into your release branch. You can merge the bugfix branch into the release branch and also merge -s ours the same branch into your master branch (even though the fix is already there) so when you later merge the release branch again, there are no conflicts from the bugfix. When you specify a subtree merge, Git is often smart enough to figure out that one is a subtree of the other and merge appropriately. We’ll add the Rack project as a remote reference in our own project and then check it out into its own branch: From COPYING README bin example testNot all the branches in your repository actually have to be branches of the same project. It’s not common, because it’s rarely helpful, but it’s fairly easy to have branches contain completely different histories. We can do that in Git with git read-tree. You’ll learn more about read-tree and its friends in Git Internals, but for now know that it reads the root tree of one branch into your current staging area and working directory.So, if the Rack project updates, we can pull in upstream changes by switching to that branch and pulling: To pull in the changes and prepopulate the commit message, use the --squash option, as well as the recursive merge strategy’s -Xsubtree option. The recursive strategy is the default here, but we include it for clarity. Automatic merge went well; stopped before committing as requested We can keep branches with other related projects in our repository and subtree merge them into our project occasionally. It is nice in some ways, for example all the code is committed to a single place. However, it has other drawbacks in that it’s a bit more complex and easier to make mistakes in reintegrating changes or accidentally pushing a branch into an unrelated repository. The git merge command lets you take the independent lines of development created by git branch and integrate them into a single branch. The current branch will be updated to reflect the merge, but the target branch will be completely unaffected. Again, this means that git merge is often used in conjunction with git checkout for selecting the current branch and git branch -d for deleting the obsolete target branch. In the most frequent use cases, git merge is used to combine two branches. The following examples in this document will focus on this branch merging pattern. In these scenarios, git merge takes two commit pointers, usually the branch tips, and will find a common base commit between them.We now want to merge this feature branch into master. Git will determine the merge algorithm automatically (discussed below). When creating a merge commit Git will attempt to auto magically merge the separate histories for you. If Git encounters a piece of data that is changed in both histories it will be unable to automatically combine them. This scenario is a version control conflict and Git will need user intervention to continue. If needed, execute git checkout to switch to the receiving branch. In our case we will execute git checkout master. Execute git fetch to pull the latest remote commits. Once the fetch is completed ensure the master branch has the latest updates by executing git pull. Instead of “actually” merging the branches, all Git has to do to integrate the histories is move (i.e., “fast forward”) the current branch tip up to the target branch tip. This effectively combines the histories, since all of the commits reachable from the target branch are now available through the current one. For example, a fast forward merge of some-feature into master would look something like the following: When there is not a linear path to the target branch, Git has no choice but to combine them via a 3-way merge. 3-way merges use a dedicated commit to tie together the two histories. The nomenclature comes from the fact that Git uses three commits to generate the merge commit: the two branch tips and their common ancestor. In the latter case, the resulting merge commit serves as a symbolic joining of the two branches. The code below creates a new branch, adds two commits to it, then integrates it into the main line with a fast-forward merge. This is useful for documenting all merges that occur in your repository. This is a common scenario for large features or when several developers are working on a project simultaneously. If your feature branch was actually as small as the one in the above example, you would probably be better off rebasing it onto master and doing a fast-forward merge. This prevents superfluous merge commits from cluttering up the project history. When such a situation occurs, it stops right before the merge commit so that you can resolve the conflicts manually. When you encounter a merge conflict, running the git status command shows you which files need to be resolved. For example, if both branches modified the same section of hello.py, you would see something like the following: Its helpful to search a project for these indicators during a merge to find where conflicts need to be resolved. When you're ready to finish the merge, all you have to do is run git add on the conflicted file(s) to tell Git they're resolved. Then, you run a normal git commit to generate the merge commit. It’s the exact same process as committing an ordinary snapshot, which means it’s easy for normal developers to manage their own merges. It’s not possible to have conflicting changes in a fast-forward merge. Merging is an essential process when working with Git. We discussed the internal mechanics behind a merge and the differences between a fast forward merge and a three way, true merge. Some key take-aways are: There are two main ways Git will merge: Fast Forward and Three way Git can automatically merge commits unless there are changes that conflict in both commit sequences.

Submit a pull request. You must resolve this merge conflict with a new commit before you can merge these branches. In this example, the file styleguide.md has a merge conflict. When you open the file in your text editor, you'll see the changes from the HEAD or base branch after the line.In this example, both changes are incorporated into the final merge: You must resolve this merge conflict with a new commit before you can merge these branches.

Usually, the changes are on different lines, or even in different files, which makes the merge simple for computers to understand. However, sometimes there are competing changes that Git can't resolve without your help. Often, merge conflicts happen when people make different changes to the same line of the same file, or when one person edits a file and another person deletes the same file. If you have a merge conflict between the compare branch and base branch in your pull request, you can view a list of the files with conflicting changes above the Merge pull request button. The Merge pull request button is deactivated until you've resolved all conflicts between the compare branch and base branch. There are a couple of different ways to resolve a merge conflict: You can use the command line or a tool like GitHub Desktop to push the change.If you try merging branches on the command line that have a merge conflict, you'll get an error message.Sign up for updates!We'd love to hear how we can do better.See something that's wrong or unclear.

If the head branch is the default branch of your repository, you'll be given the option of creating a new branch to serve as the head branch for your pull request. If the head branch is protected you won't be able to merge your conflict resolution into it, so you'll be prompted to create a new head branch.You must resolve the merge conflict using an alternative Git client, or by using Git on the command line.This merges the entire base branch into your head branch.You won't get the option to update the protected branch.

It is important to understand how branching and merging works in Git before you start using it, as it can become quite complex. For hints where to find more information about Git and merging see the section called “Reading Guide”. The next point to note is that merging always takes place within a working tree. If you have made other changes in your working tree, commit those first. If the merge does not go as you expect, you may want to abort the merge using the Abort Merge command which might discard all changes (depending on the mode, in case of hard ). You can choose one commit that you want to merge from. HEAD Current commit checked out. Branch The latest commit of chosen branch. Tag The commit of chosen tag. Commit Any commit, you click.Squash Just merge change from the other branch. Can't recorder Merge information. The new commit will not record merge branch as one parent commit. Log view will not show merge line between two branch. No Fast Forward Generate a merge commit even if the merge resolved as a fast-forward. See for an example of fast-forward vs.No Commit Do not automatically create a commit after merge. Messages Populate the log message with one-line descriptions from the actual commits that are being merged. Can specify the number of commits to be included in the merge message. Conflicts Although major merge work is done by git automatically, a conflict may happen during merge (i.e., a file is modified in both branches, the current one and the one you want to merge), please see the section called “Resolving Conflicts” on how to resolve conflicts. You can see more information at the section called “git-merge(1)”. Look at the diffs Advanced Merging, The result ordinarily goes into.As man says: With --no-commit perform the merge but pretend the merge git merge-file incorporates all changes that lead from the to into.

The simple answer is y and any other hunks will be shown for you to press y to. So this will merge all of your changes, but we are only using this Resolve the conflicts. Git will mark the conflicts in the working tree. Edit the files into shape and git add them to the index. Use git commit or git merge --continue to seal the deal. The latter command checks whether there is a (interrupted) merge in progress before calling git commit. Git merge two files git-merge-file Documentation, combines both changes.

Mundane git tricks: Combining two files into one while preserving, We now have two files, one with fruits and one with vegetables. The simple answer is y and any other hunks will be shown for you to press y to.So this will merge all of your changes, but we are only using this branch to grab the one file. Fix up any Conflicts etc.Git force merge Git merge with force overwrite, Not really related to this answer, but I'd ditch git pull, which just runs git fetch followed by git merge. You are doing three merges, which is I think the better form is git checkout; git merge -s ours followed by a pull request from newBranch into oldBranch. This replaces everything in oldBranch with the current contents of newBranch. It does this by recording a merge of oldBranch into the newBranch without actually changing anything in newBranch.The following question of “How do you force a merge with Git?” is a very dangerous action. First question is what is the reason to force. Does the pull action fails. It usually means that you need to merge first your local copy, but you can diff it. Do you think the the current code to be merged is the right one but the old code should not exists.My only concern is, if there are any merge issues, I want to tell git to overwrite changes in a master branch without giving me a merge prompt.
