  1. What's new in this club
  2. Hello Club Members of Open Source Contributions today I gonna provide you guys with one of the initial thing / most important tool for any open source contributor out there that is some Git Cheat Sheet that every open source contributor should be familiar with. So let's deep dive into it. First of all what is Git for any general audience - Git is a distributed version control system that helps developers collaborate on projects of any scale. Git helps many developers accross the nations to collaborate/contribute on a particular project irrespective of their time differences helps in speeding up the feature addition,bug management and many more things on to that project. What is a Distributed Version Control System? A distributed version control system is a system that helps you keep track of changes you've made to files in your project.Git makes collaboration easy. Everyone on the team can keep a full backup of the repositories they're working on on their local machine. Then, thanks to an external server like BitBucket, GitHub or GitLab, they can safely store the repository in a single place. Git has many different commands you can use. And I've found that these fifty are the ones I use the most often (and are therefore the most helpful to remember). Downlaod Git for your desired system for here - [Hidden Content] and for setup refer this official documenation from Github link is - [Hidden Content] And if there is any difficulty in seting up Git then do reply down in this topic and I will post a seperate topic for Git installation. GIT CHEATSHEET/COMMANDS - How to check your Git configuration: The command below returns a list of information about your git configuration including user name and email: git config -l How to setup your Git username: With the command below you can configure your user name: git config --global user.name "Flicker" ("your desired name") How to setup your Git user email: This command lets you setup the user email address you'll use in your commits. git config --global user.email "[email protected]" ("your desired email/gmail") How to cache your login credentials in Git: You can store login credentials in the cache so you don't have to type them in each time. Just use this command: git config --global credential.helper cache How to initialize a Git repo: Everything starts from here. The first step is to initialize a new Git repo locally in your project root. You can do so with the command below: git init How to add a file to the staging area in Git: The command below will add a file to the staging area. Just replace filename_here with the name of the file you want to add to the staging area. git add filename_here How to add all files in the staging area in Git: If you want to add all files in your project to the staging area, you can use a wildcard . and every file will be added for you. git add . How to add only certain files to the staging area in Git: With the asterisk in the command below, you can add all files starting with 'fil' in the staging area. git add fil* How to check a repository's status in Git: This command will show the status of the current repository including staged, unstaged, and untracked files. git status How to commit changes in the editor in Git: This command will open a text editor in the terminal where you can write a full commit message.A commit message is made up of a short summary of changes, an empty line, and a full description of the changes after it. git commit How to commit changes with a message in Git: You can add a commit message without opening the editor. This command lets you only specify a short summary for your commit message. git commit -m "your commit message here" How to commit changes (and skip the staging area) in Git: You can add and commit tracked files with a single command by using the -a and -m options. git commit -a -m "your commit message here" How to see your commit history in Git: This command shows the commit history for the current repository: git log How to see your commit history including changes in Git: This command shows the commit's history including all files and their changes. git log -p How to see a specific commit in Git: This command shows a specific commit.

But you should avoid amending commits that have already been made public. How to rollback the last commit in Git: Git revert will create a new commit that is the opposite of everything in the given commit.We can revert the latest commit by using the head alias like this: git revert HEAD How to rollback an old commit in Git: You can revert an old commit using its commit id. This opens the editor so you can add a commit message. git revert comit_id_here How to create a new branch in Git: By default, you have one branch, the main branch.

You can find out the remote repository log by using this command: git log origin/main How to merge a remote repo with your local repo in Git: If the remote repository has changes you want to merge with your local, then this command will do that for you: git merge origin/main How to get the contents of remote branches in Git without automatically merging: This lets you update the remote without merging any content into the local branches. You can call git merge or git checkout to do the merge. git remote update How to push a new branch to a remote repo in Git: If you want to push a branch to a remote repository you can use the command below. Just remember to add -u to create the branch upstream: git push -u origin branch_name How to remove a remote branch in Git: If you no longer need a remote branch you can remove it using the command below: git push --delete origin branch_name_here How to use Git rebase: You can transfer completed work from one branch to another using git rebase. git rebase branch_name_here Git Rebase can get really messy if you don't do it properly. Before using this command I suggest that you re-read the official documentation here . How to run rebase interactively in Git: You can run git rebase interactively using the -i flag. It will open the editor and present a set of commands you can use. git rebase -i master # p, pick = use commit # r, reword = use commit, but edit the commit message # e, edit = use commit, but stop for amending # s, squash = use commit, but meld into previous commit # f, fixup = like "squash", but discard this commit's log message # x, exec = run command (the rest of the line) using shell # d, drop = remove commit How to force a push request in Git: This command will force a push request. This is usually fine for pull request branches because nobody else should have cloned them.But this isn't something that you want to do with public repos. git push -f So here are top git commands used by open source developers most of the functionality are covered here go through it or save this topic post link so that u can refer it at any time. Hope you learnt something new from this cheat sheet. Stay Learning Stay Contributing. Happy Open Source Development!! 🤙💯
  3. Open Source Softwares are boon to mankind and it also paves the way for an buzzing enthusiast developer to contribute on it and also helps to gain an industry level experience right from the comfort of their homes. Isn't that super cool? So, in this post, I'll be sharing with you some of the Open Source Programs which you can apply as a student to gain some experience, work with some of the smartest and friendliest minds in the world from the comfort of your home and of course earn a generous stipend as well. Disclaimer: The application period for some programs from the list may had been closed but do consider reading it in order to make yourself well prepared with their application process in advance as some of them need prior contributions into the projects Thanks!! Google Summer Of Code (GSOC) - Google Summer Of Code is a mentorship program started by Google back in 2006 in order to bring more people especially the students into the open source communities by acting as a bridge between the two.
