Solutions to Common Issues

How do you view your Git branch list?

Before you perform actions on your branches in your Git repository, it’s important to know which branch you’re targeting. If you aren’t using a Git GUI, like GitKraken, to visualize your work, it’s likely you won’t be able to remember the names of each local branch, especially in a large Git repository.

To view a list of your local Git branches, you can run

git branch

at any point during your workflow.

Git Branch in the CLI

To view a list of your remote Git branches, you can run

git branch -r 

when working with remote branches in your Git repository.
