How do I undo a bad rebase in Git?
If you’re still in the middle of a rebase it’s easy to start over:
git rebase –abort
But let’s say you started with this:
Did a git rebase and are now looking at:
Except you screwed up during a merge conflict and now un-sure how you can get your ‘do-over’.
I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. (If you know key)
Leveraging the git reflog, you can go back in time and check out your branch as though the rebase never happened.
In the following link, I put together a set of steps to create a git repo that puts you into this position (of a bad rebase) and then describes how to get out of it.
I’d love to hear any feedback on this repo. Or try submitting a pull request or post a GitHub issue.
