git rerere – Do not always resolve the same conflicts

January 23, 2019, 6:11 pm

Recently I came across a very interesting post from Christophe Porteneuve on Hacker Noon, in which `git rerere` was introduced. The "rerere" stands for Reuse Recorded Resolution and this means that the resolution of conflicts is recorded and can be used again if necessary.

How `git rerere` works in detail you can see on Hacker Noon. For me an so far unknown, but very helpful git command. I hope it helps you, so you don't have to solve the same conflicts all the time.

The original documentation for `git rerere` can be found here.
