A guide for git status change


??untracked 新文件尚未 git add
Astaged 已经 git add 但尚未提交
AMstaged 未提交又做限新的修改,新修改尚未staged


状态A -> 状态B需要的操作
nul -> M修改文件
M -> nulgit checkout HEAD file(s) OR git checkout -- file(s)
M -> Agit add file(s)
A -> Mgit reset file(s)
A -> nulgit checkout HEAD file(s)
nul -> A修改然后 git add
?? -> Agit add file(s)
A -> ??git rm --cached file(s)
A -> AMgit add 之后再修改文件
AM -> Agit checkout -- file(s)

`git rm --cached ` is a worse choice than `git update-index --assume-unchanged `

There are 3 options, you probably want #3

  1. This will keep the local file for you, but will delete it for anyone else when they pull.

    git rm --cached <file-name> or git rm -r --cached <folder-name>

  2. This is for optimization, like a folder with a large number of files, e.g. SDKs that probably won't ever change. It tells git to stop checking that huge folder every time for changes, locally, since it won't have any. The assume-unchanged index will be reset and file(s) overwritten if there are upstream changes to the file/folder (when you pull).

    git update-index --assume-unchanged <path-name>

  3. This is to tell git you want your own independent version of the file or folder. For instance, you don't want to overwrite (or delete) production/staging config files.

    git update-index --skip-worktree <path-name>

It's important to know that git update-index will not propagate with git, and each user will have to run it independently.
