Save Stashed Changes and Pop Them Into a Different Branch
You can quite simply do
git stash save on the branch where you have the changes, and then do
git stash pop on the branch you want the changes to be in. For example:
git stash save git checkout destination-branch git stash pop
Apply Stashed Changes to a New Branch
If you wish to apply stashed changes to a new branch, you can simply create a branch from a stash like so:
git stash git stash branch new-branch
As you can see, you first need to stash changes before you can apply them to a new branch when using
git stash branch.
Apply Stashed Changes to an Existing Branch
If the branch you wish to apply stashed changes to already exists, you could use a temporary branch to help add the stashed changes to it like so:
git stash git stash branch temp-branch git add . git commit git checkout destination-branch git merge temp-branch git branch -D temp-branch
To summarize, here's what we do:
- Stash changes;
- Create a new temporary branch and apply stashed changes to it;
- Add/stage all modified files;
- Save a new commit object in the local git repository;
- Navigate/checkout to the "destination branch" where we need the changes;
- Merge changes from the temporary branch into the destination branch;
- Force-delete the temporary branch from local git repository.
