In this tutorial I will show you how to stage changes for later commits.
We have already made changes in the hello.txt file and now we need to tell git to stage the changes. Check the status after adding the changes
git add hello.txt git status
You will see the following output:
The change to the hello.txt file has been staged. This means that git now knows about the change, but the change hasn’t been permanently recorded in the repository yet. You can commit the changes to store it permanently.
If you decide you don’t want to commit that change after all, the status command reminds you that the
git reset command can be used to unstage that change.
