In this blog post, I will show you how to create a new Git branch and start using it.

View Branches

Before I start I will run the following command which will show me all the branches that I have

git branch

Create a New Branch

To create a new branch I will run the following command.

Note: My new branch is called 3.Dev

git branch 3.Dev

After I created the branch it will look the same as the master branch (all files, etc)

Start using The New Branch

To start using the new branch I will use the following command.

git checkout 3.Dev

Delete Branch

To delete the new branch I will first checkout the master branch:

Git checkout master

And delete the new branch using

git branch -d 3.Dev

Success! You're on the list.
