Cherry-pick is life-saving git tool for moving just single commit from branch to another branch. To illustrate, you have to fix an issue quickly and you accidentally sent commit to develop branch and you realised that there are another commit from another developers, so you can’t open merge request from develop to master and can’t merge it immediately.
If you are sure there is no obstacle to move just fix commit to master, you can use cherry-pick to move the commit properly.
How to do “cherry-pick”?
Find commit hash
Go your commit history in git UI and get commit hash.
Switch to desired branch
Be sure you are on the branch that you want to move commit to it
git switch master
Let’s use cherry-pick
git cherry-pick <commit-hash>
Push commit to branch
git push origin master
Congrats! 🎉 Your commit is also in master branch and great for you to deliver fix.
