GIT push from one repo to another

Splitting off from a branch to another git repo seems like it would suck. In reality it’s simple. Two lines and you’re set.

Things you’ll need:

  • Source repo pulled down locally
  • Target repo created on your git server (GitHub, BitBucket, GitLab, etc)
  • Url for target git repo
  • Branches

$ cd /path/to/source
$ git remote add [email protected]:my_team/my_awesome_target_repo.git
$ git push targetrepo my_branch_to_create_off_of:master

That’ll create the master branch off of the branch “my_branch_to_create_off_of” from your local repo.
