A cherry-pick applies the changes from a given commit (from another branch) onto the current branch. A rebase resets the branch to the state of another branch (upstream) and then re-applies your local changes by cherry-picking each of your local commits onto the upstream commit history.


git_rebase_list(upstream = NULL, repo = ".")

git_rebase_commit(upstream = NULL, repo = ".")

git_cherry_pick(commit, repo = ".")

git_ahead_behind(upstream = NULL, ref = "HEAD", repo = ".")



branch to which you want to rewind and re-apply your local commits. The default uses the remote upstream branch with the current state on the git server, simulating git_pull.


The path to the git repository. If the directory is not a repository, parent directories are considered (see git_find). To disable this search, provide the filepath protected with I(). When using this parameter, always explicitly call by name (i.e. repo = ) because future versions of gert may have additional parameters.


id of the commit to cherry pick


string with a branch/tag/commit


git_rebase_list shows your local commits that are missing from the upstream history, and if they conflict with upstream changes. It does so by performing a rebase dry-run, without committing anything. If there are no conflicts, you can use git_rebase_commit to rewind and rebase your branch onto upstream. Gert only support a clean rebase; it never leaves the repository in unfinished "rebasing" state. If conflicts arise, git_rebase_commit will raise an error without making changes.
