Managing Git branches

Managing Git branchesΒΆ

To track the release cycle efficiently, branch your project or use tags.

Difference between a branch and a tag:

  • A tag represents a version of a particular branch at a moment in time.
  • A branch represents a separate thread of development that may run concurrently with other development efforts on the same code base. Changes to a branch may eventually be merged back into another branch to unify them.
