Develop Branch

Create Develop Branch

When using the git-flow extension library, executing git flow init on an existing repo will create the develop branch:

  1. Initialize gitflow

    Admin:~/environment/gitflow-workshop (master) $ git flow init
    Which branch should be used for bringing forth production releases?
    - master
    Branch name for production releases: [master]
    Branch name for "next release" development: [develop]
    How to name your supporting branch prefixes?
    Feature branches? [feature/]
    Release branches? [release/]
    Hotfix branches? [hotfix/]
    Support branches? [support/]
    Version tag prefix? []
  2. List the current branches. The current branch will be highlighted in green and marked with an asterisk.

    Admin:~/environment/gitflow-workshop (master) $ git branch
    * develop
  3. Push commits made on a local branch to a remote repository.

    Admin:~/environment/gitflow-workshop (develop) $ git push -u origin develop
