You asked your teammate for help with a piece of code and they showed you the solution in their editor. Now you need to fetch those changes. Usually, this would mean a series of tedious Git commands for both of you (not to mention that the changes will forever grace your git history), but no longer - GitLive allows you to cherry-pick your teammate's changes straight from their local files without having to push and pull to Git.
In VS Code, open up the team tab by clicking on the GitLive icon on the activity bar.
This will show a list of your teammates, if they are online (or away) and the issue they are currently working on. Click the arrow on the left-hand side of the teammate that helped you to see the repositories they have cloned, locate the one they made the changes to and click the arrow beside that too.
Here, you can see the list of files changed by your teammate on their branch compared to the main branch. Files with dots next to the name contain changes made locally by your teammate that have not yet been pushed to the remote repository.
Since we are only interested in their local changes, click the filter icon at the top of the team tab to filter to only the unpushed changes.
Now we can see the single file that contains the solution we want to copy! Clicking on it will open a diff of the changes so we can make sure it contains only the changes we need. Now all we need to do is click the cherry icon next to the file in the team tab to cherry-pick the changes. And voilà - no need for any git push- or git pull -ing!
You can also perform the cherry pick at the level above if you want to pick all changes from multiple files at once by clicking the cherry icon on the repository.
