Git – Revert Changes

Sometimes we may want to revert the changes in the working tree. Let’s delete some files in the Rails project.

1. Delete the app/controllers folder

  • rm -r ./app/controllers


2. Let’s check what i have just done by git status


3. Revert the changes

  • git checkout -f


4. Check the working tree again by git status


Done =)
