Update a github fork
Github forked repositories can be updated from Github or terminal.
To update from Github, you can create a “Pull Request” from the original repository to yours.
For updating using the terminal, add the original repo as a remote upstream to sync from.
# check that there is no remote upstream repo and add one git remote -v git remote add upstream https://github.com/Original/OriginalRepo.git # verify that upstream has been added and fetch branches and commits into upstream/master git remote -v git fetch upstream # checkout fork's master branch and do a merge of upstream/master into it git checkout master git merge upstream/master # push the changes to have your master branch git push
