Git Amend

Some amend snippets that are worth remembering. See the documentation for all the commit joy.

Amend last local commit message #

git commit --amend -m  'amended commit message'

You can also do the following which will open an editor allowing you to modify the message.

git commit --amend

Amend with --no-edit #

This allows you to amend the last commit with any changes you have made without changing the commit message.

git commit --amend --no-edit

Use the selected commit message without launching an editor. For example, git commit --amend --no-edit amends a commit without changing its commit message.
