Git, Branch, Remote · Apr 13, 2021
Creates and switches to a new branch, optionally setting up a remote tracking branch.
git checkout -b <branch>to create a new branch with the specified name and switch to it.
- You can optionally add
-t <remote>/<branch>to set up a remote tracking branch for the newly created branch.
- Note: You can alternatively use
git branch <branch> [-t <remote>/<branch>]and then
git checkout <branch>separately.
git checkout -b <branch> [-t <remote>/<branch>]
git checkout -b patch-1 # Local branch, without a remote tracking branch git checkout -b patch-2 -t origin/patch-2 # Local branch and remote tracking branch with the same name
