CLion 2017.2 Help

Rebasing GitHub Fork

Once you’ve forked someone’s repository you may want to stay up to date with the origin project. For this you can rebase your own fork into the origin right from the CLion IDE.

To initiate a rebase operation

  1. On the main menu, choose VCS | Git | Rebase my GitHub fork. The Rebase Branches dialog box opens.
  2. From the Git Root drop-down list, select the relevant local repository.
  3. From the Branch drop-down list, select the branch to rebase.
  4. Specify the new base and commits to apply.

The status update will be shown in the Event Log, or in the status balloon that will pop up.
