Git - Remote and local Branch management


remote and local branch management


Sync origin/master

To synchronize your work, you run:

git fetch origin

It will fetch everything the remote server has that you don’t have yet.

git fetch updates your remote-tracking branches.

This command will:

  • look up which server origin is
  • fetches any data from it that you don’t yet have,
  • and updates your local database,
  • moving your origin/master pointer branch to its new, more up-to-date position


To merge this work into your current working branch, you can run

git merge origin/branchName
