Volcano - Take a small issue in git and have it erupt into a massive issue.


Example 1

How to solve this problem

[.column]

If you pushed to github.

Sorry gonna have to delete that repo in GH. To really clean the history.

[.column]

If you didn't...

rm -rf .git
git init

Example 2


via @anthonypjshaw

git rebase -i

commit hash before the one you want to drop

Preventative Measures


DON'T LOAD EVERYTHING AT ONCE

git commit <filenames> -m 'update to specific piece of code'

Bonus Points to IDEs - Tower - GitHub - PyCharm - VSCode


Before Doing Anything ⚠️

git template or git script

npx gitignore python
echo .envrc >> .gitignore
echo node_modules >> .gitignore
echo *.json *.csv >> .gitignore


No git add .

git status before you git wrecked
