Use Git to Work on Multiple Resources at Once | IDEA IntelliJ (2023)

Sometimes it is necessary to switch between different tasks with unfinished things and then return to them. IntelliJIDEA provides a few ways to comfortably work on many different resources without losing your work:

  • You canto hideofilepending changes.

    Storing changes is very similar to archiving. The only difference is in how the patches are generated and applied. Stashes are generated by Git and can be applied from within IntelliJIDEA or outside of it. IntelliJIDEA generates patches with archived changes and they are also applied through the IDE. Also, cloaking involves all uncommitted changes, while putting changes on a shelf allows you to select some of the local changes instead of archiving all of them.

  • You cankeep changes related to different tasks or features in different changelists.

  • you can createbranches to work on different unrelated features.

archive changes

Shelvingit is temporarily storing pending changes that you have not yet committed. This is useful, for example, if you need to switch to another task and want to put the changes aside to work on later.

With IntelliJIDEA, you can archive separate files andchange lists.

Once archived, a change can be applied as many times as needed.

archive changes

  1. Noengagetools windowAlt+0, right-click the files or change list you want to place on a shelf, and selectarchive changesnot context menu.

    Use Git to Work on Multiple Resources at Once | IDEA IntelliJ (1)
  2. Noarchive changesdialog box, review the list of modified files.

  3. Noconfirmation messagefield, write the name of the shelf to create and click the buttonarchive changesbutton.

You can also silently archive changes without displaying thearchive changesdialogue. To do this, select a file or a list of changes that you want to archive and click the buttonarchive quietlyiconUse Git to Work on Multiple Resources at Once | IDEA IntelliJ (2)on the toolbar or pressCtrl+Shift+H🇧🇷 The changelog name containing the changes you want to archive will be used as the library name.

To avoid ending up with multiple shelves with the same name (such asModel, for example), you can drag a file or list of changes from theCommit to <branch>guide for theBeingguide ofengagetool window, wait a second until it is activated and edit the new shelf name dynamically when you release the mouse button.

cancel changes

Unshelving is moving deferred changes from a shelf to a list of pending changes. Unarchived changes can be filtered from the view or removed from the shelf.

  1. NoBeingtab, select the list of changes or files you want to unzip.

  2. PressCtrl+Shift+UOh deartake offfrom the context menu of the selection.

  3. Nocancel changesdialog box, specify the change list to which you want to restore unarchived changes to theNamecountryside. You can select an existing changelog from the list or enter the name of a new changelog to be created with the unarchived changes. You can enter the description of the new changelog in thecommentfield (optional).

    If you want to activate the new list of changes, selectActivate🇧🇷 Otherwise, the current active changelog remains active.

  4. If you want IntelliJIDEA to keep thecontextof a task associated with the new changelist on its deactivation and restore the context when the changelist becomes active, select thefollow the contextoption (seetasks and contextsfor details).

  5. If you want to remove the changes you are about to cancel, select theRemove successfully applied files from shelfoption. Unarchived files will be removed from this shelf and added to another changes list and marked as applied. They will not be completely removed until they are explicitly removed by clickingUse Git to Work on Multiple Resources at Once | IDEA IntelliJ (3)on the toolbar or by selectingclean up is no longer archivednot context menu.

  6. CliqueOK🇧🇷 If there are conflicts between the corrected version and the current version, resolve them as described inresolve conflicts.

You can also unpack changes silently, without displaying thecancel changesdialogue. To do this, select a file or changelist you want to unzip and click the buttondetach in silenceiconUse Git to Work on Multiple Resources at Once | IDEA IntelliJ (4)on the toolbar or pressCtrl+Alt+U🇧🇷 Unarchived files will be moved to the active pending changes list.

You can also drag a file or list of changes from theBeingguide for theCommit to <branch>tab to silently disable it. If you drag it by holding down the buttonControlkey, it will be copied to theCommit to the branchguide instead of being removed from the rack.

Discard archived changes

  1. NoBeingview, select the change list that contains the changes you no longer want to keep.

  2. Right click and chooseErasefrom the context menu or pressErase.

Restore Unarchived Changes

IntelliJIDEA allows you to reapply unarchived changes if necessary. All unarchived changes can be reused until explicitly removed by clicking the buttonUse Git to Work on Multiple Resources at Once | IDEA IntelliJ (5)on the toolbar or by selectingclean up is no longer archivednot context menu.

(Video) IntelliJ Workspace Tips - Multiple Repositories in One Workspace

  1. Make sure thatShow is no longer archived Use Git to Work on Multiple Resources at Once | IDEA IntelliJ (6)the toolbar option is enabled.

  2. Select the files or library you want to restore.

  3. In the context menu of the selection, chooseTo restore.

Apply external patches

You can import patches created inside or outside of IntelliJIDEA and apply them as archived changes.

  1. NoBeingsee, chooseimport patchesnot context menu.

  2. In the dialog that opens, select the patch file to apply. The selected patch appears on theBeingguide like a shelf.

  3. Select the newly added shelf with the patch and choosecancel changesfrom the context menu of the selection.

Automatically archive the base revision

It can be useful to configure IntelliJIDEA to always archive base revisions of files that are under Git version control.

  1. PressCtrl+Alt+Sto open the IDE settings and selectVersion control | Shelf.

  2. Select theArchiving basic file revisions in distributed version control systemsoption.

    If this option is enabled, the base patch files will be saved to a shelf that will be used for a period of time.3 way fusionapplying a shelf generates conflicts. If disabled, IntelliJIDEA will look for the base revision in the project history, which can take a while; in addition, the revision on which the conflicting shelf was based might be missing (for example, if the history changed as a result of the reorganization operation).

Change the default shelf location

By default, the shelves directory is in your project directory. However, you may want to change the default location of the shelf. This can be useful, for example, if you want to avoid accidentally deleting shelves when cleaning up your working copy, or if you want to store them in a separate repository, allowing shelves to be shared among members of your team.

  1. PressCtrl+Alt+Sto open the IDE settings and selectVersion control | Shelf.

  2. CliqueChange the location of the shelvesand specify the new location in the dialog that opens.

  3. If necessary, selectMove shelves to a new locationto move the existing shelves to the new directory.

Watch this video tutorial on how to take advantage of shelves so you can switch to a different task without losing your unfinished work:

save Changes

Sometimes it may be necessary to revert your working copy to match the HEAD commit, but you don't want to lose the work you've already done. This can happen if you know there are older changes possibly relevant to what you're doing, or if you need to make some urgent fixes.

Stash involves recording the difference between the HEAD commit and the current state of the working directory (storage). Index changes can also be stored.

Unstashing involves applying a stored stash to a branch.

You can apply a stash to an existing branch or create a new branch based on it.

A stash can be applied as many times as you need to any branch you need, justswitch to required branch🇧🇷 Keep that in mind:

  • Hiding after a series of commits results in conflicts that need to be resolved.

  • You cannot hide a "dirty" working copy, that is, a working copy with uncommitted changes.

Save changes to a stash

  1. In the main menu, selectgit | Unconfirmed changes | stock changes.

  2. NoInventorydialog box that opens, select the appropriate Git root and verify that the correct branch has been checked out.

    (Video) Git in IntelliJ | Tips & Tricks | Tech Primers

  3. NoMessagedescribe the changes you are about to store.

  4. To hide local changes and bring prepared index changes to your work tree for review and testing, select the buttonkeep indexoption.

  5. Cliquecreate inventory.

apply a cache

  1. In the main menu, selectgit | Unconfirmed changes | unlock changes.

  2. Select the Git root where you want to save and make sure the correct branch is checked out.

  3. Select the stash you want to apply from the list.

    If you want to check which files are affected in the selected stash, clickVision.

  4. To remove the selected stash once applied, select theor popoption.

  5. To also apply hidden index modifications, select thereboot rateoption.

  6. If you want to create a new branch based on the selected stash, instead of applying it to the branch that is currently checked out, type the name of that branch in thelike new branchcampo.

To remove a stash, select it from the list and clickShoot down🇧🇷 To remove all hiding places, click onclear.

Group changes into different change lists

When you are working on several related features, you may find it convenient to group your changes into differentchange lists🇧🇷 This approach has its pros and cons compared to usingcharacteristic branchesto work on multiple tasks.

advantage:

  • You can easily switch between different logical sets of changes and commit them separately.

  • Unlike using branches for the same purpose, you have all the changes at hand without having to switch between branches, which can take a while if your project is very large.

  • It's a good idea to test how different features work together.

  • You can remotely run a changelist on a build server.

Contras:

  • While using changelists might seem like a lighter option compared to branches, it's not safe as your changes aren't backed up until you commit and commit them. If something happens to your local working copy, all your changes will be lost as they are not part of the Git project history.

  • It is not possible to perform tests of atomic characteristics.

  • Collaboration on the same resource is not possible. Also, you can't contribute from different machines unless you're sending patches with changes via email, which might not be very convenient.

All change lists are displayed on thelocal changesvision ofCommit to <branch>tab. All changed files are automatically placed in the active change list, which is theChangeschangelist unless you created a different one and activated it.

The change lists are displayed on thelocal changesVision. Initially, there is a single default changelist. is calledChanges, all new changes are automatically placed in this changelist. there is also aunversioned fileschangelist that groups newly created files that have not yet been added to your VCS.

  • Right-click on a changelist and selectDelete list of changesnot context menu.

Using feature branches

A branch in Git represents a separate line of development, so if you're working on a separate feature that you want to complete and test before you're ready to share the results of your work and merge themprofessor, doing it in a feature branch is the best solution. That way, you can ensure that unstable code doesn't compromise your project's main codebase, and you can easily switch to other tasks if needed.

advantage:

  • Unlike using changelists to group changes, using feature branches is safe. Once you commit changes to Git, they become part of the Git project history, so you can always restore your commit viagit reflogeven if you corrupt your working tree. After committing the changes, a backup is made.

  • You can develop unrelated parallel functions and test them atomically.

  • When you're done developing on your branch, you canreorder or squash commits, so your history is linear and clean.

  • It's easy to collaborate on your feature or develop it on different machines.

Contras:

  • It can take some time to switch branches on really big projects.

  • It is not very convenient to test related resources together.

  • you have to learn oneworkflow for using feature branchesand integrating your changes into the main code base.

There are two main approaches to using feature branches and integrating your changes into the main codebase:

  • amerge option

  • arebase option

Use merge to merge changes from a feature branch

The main benefit of the merge option is full traceability, as commits merged into the main codebase retain their original hash and author, and all commits that are part of a feature can be merged.

This workflow is good for projects where committing changes to the main codebase involvespull requestsor a top down approval procedure as existing branches are not changed in any way.

The main downside of this approach is that weird merge commits are created every time you need to pull changes, heavily polluting the project history and making it hard to read.

  1. create a branchfor its separate line of development.

  2. engageits changes as it develops.

  3. Pushyour branch to a remote repository. This should be done as a backup and so you can collaborate or work on different machines.

  4. Switch to a different branch when you need to do work unrelated to your role.

    (Video) IntelliJ IDEA. Cloning a Project from GitHub

  5. Have your feature reviewed and tested and make any necessary fixes.

  6. When you're ready to integrate the results of your work into the main branch (p.professor), Do the following:

    • linkits feature branch in the main codebase.

    • Delete feature branch.

    • Push.

Use rebase to merge changes from a feature branch

The main benefit of this option is that you get a clean project history that is easy for others to read and understand. Your record does not contain unnecessary merge confirmations produced bymeetingsoperation, and you get a linear history that is easy to navigate and search.

However, when you decide to adopt this workflow, you should keep in mind thatzorroit rewrites the project history as it creates new commits for each commit in the original feature branch, so they will have different hashes, obstructing traceability.

  1. create a branchfor its separate line of development.

  2. engageits changes often as it develops.

  3. Pushyour branch to a remote repository. This should be done as a backup and so you can collaborate or work on different machines.

  4. a foxits characteristic branch toprofessorfrom times to times. It only makes sense to do this if your feature branch is long. This is useful for:

    • make sure your feature branch andprofessordon't go too far

    • avoid resolving multiple conflicts when you finally integrate your changes into the main codebase. When you rebase regularly, you can iteratively resolve conflicts and not end up fighting over a huge difference.

    • speed up branch control, as switching between branches slows down once they diverge far enough.

    The rebase involves the following steps:

    • Searchremote control changes, orbitchchanges inprofessorrama.

    • a foxyour branch forprofessor.

    • force boostThe results ofzorrooperation for its feature branch.

  5. switch toprofessorwhen you need to perform work that is not related to your resource. When you return to your feature branch, runPayment and rebase to current.

  6. Have your feature reviewed and tested and make any necessary fixes.

  7. Runinteractive rebasewhen your appeal is complete. This allows yourearrange and smashis committed to making your feature branch history nice and clean.

  8. When you're ready to integrate the results of your work into the main branch (p.professor), Do the following:

    • checkaprofessorrama.

    • linkyour branch withprofessor. Sinceprofessorhasn't diverged, Git will simply move the pointer to the last commit of the feature branch instead of creating a new merge commit (this is known as a fast-forward merge).

    • Delete feature branch.

    • Push.
