How to undo last commit/push to git repository
Was faced with an issue recently where I ‘accidentally’ pushed a ‘bad’ commit to github. Luckily with git its easy to undo such mistakes.
In your working directory type
git push -f origin HEAD^:master
And voilia, your last push was removed.
Note. To sync local changes to match the previous head we can use
git reset HEAD~
Now, lets say you pushed a truckload of crappy commits to the repository. Well, thats not gonna be an issue either, just add more carets for each push you wish to remove.
eg. to remove the last 3 commits
git push -f origin HEAD^^^:master
