TIL: the Git -p flag!

Today I learned about the -p flag in git and now I want to use it everywhere!

According to the man page:

$ man git-add

...
-p, --patch
Use the interactive patch selection interface to chose which changes to commit. See git-add(1) for details
...
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You can use the -p flag with checkout, add, commit

Git Patch!!!!!

How cool

There is also git add -i, very useful most of the times!

I don't think I can provide much value through an article, considering all the other resources that are out there. Also, what is a #bloggolf blog post ?
