That buffer stays there until you save it by executing git commit.
If you've edited a file and want to only commit part of it and not an unfinished part, or commit documentation or whitespace changes seperate from substantive changes, you can use 'git add -i' to do so relatively easily. You can download these from and. Note: If you are new to Git, the website is a good place to start with a popular online , Getting Started and.

This list accepts commands, allowing the user to edit the list before initiating the rebase action. Obviously, we choose the y option so that this chunk is staged for commit. Also notice the text in blue at the bottom of the window, with a prompt waiting for us to tell git what to do.

Both will result in an interactive console that shows the hunks, or grouped lines being changed, that you can either select to be staged, or ignored.
And therein lies the trick. In other words this way of working has a high chance of 'breaking the build'. Maybe it is not code ie maybe it is a book or something?

I realize that in everyday work, one doesn't always practice feature-branching, but generally one does.
An interesting option it accepts is --interactive -i for short , which will open an editor with a list of the commits which are about to be changed. Exactly how you create a sensible diff seems to be a bit of an dark art at least to me right now , but you should always keep in mind how the original file looked like, and then plan your -s and +s accordingly. Running Initialize Repository will create the necessary Git repository metadata files and show your workspace files as untracked changes ready to be staged. For one, we might not be done with our feature yet, but the bug fix is critical and should be able to be merged back into master immediately. Each of the commands allows you to choose what files you want to work on. Why do the Pull, Push and Sync actions never finish?
