In a project using Git™ source control, click Branches on the Project tab. The Branches dialog box appears, where you can view, switch, create, and merge branches.
You can inspect information about each commit node. Select a node in the Branch Browser diagram to view the author, date, commit message, and changed files.
The Branches pane in this figure shows an example branch history.
Select a source for the new branch. Click a node in
the Branch Browser diagram, or enter a unique identifier in the Source
text box. You can enter a tag, branch name, or a unique prefix of
the SHA1 hash (for example,
73c637 to identify
a specific commit). Leave the default to create a branch from the
head of the current branch.
Enter a name in the Branch name text box and click Create.
To work on the files on your new branch, switch your project to the branch.
In the Branches drop-down list, select the branch you want to switch to and click Switch.
Close the Branches dialog box to return to the project and work on the files on your branch.
For next steps, see Pull, Push, and Fetch Files with Git.
In a project, click Branches.
In the Branches dialog box, select the branch you want to switch to in the Branches list and click Switch.
Close the Branches dialog box to return to the project and work on the files on the selected branch.
In the Branches dialog box, to examine differences from the parent, right-click a
file in the tree under
Differences from parent and select
Show Difference. The project opens a comparison
If you want to examine added or deleted files, or to test how the code ran in previous versions, you can save a copy of the selected or parent files. Right-click a file and select Save As or Save Parent As.
Before you can merge branches, you must install command-line Git on your system path and register model files as binary to prevent Git from inserting conflict markers. See Install Command-Line Git Client.
After you use Fetch, you must merge. See Pull, Fetch, and Merge.
To merge any branches:
In a project, click Branches.
In the Branches dialog box, from the Branches drop-down list, select a branch you want to merge into the current branch, and click Merge.
Close the Branches dialog box to return to the project and work on the files on the current branch.
If the branch merge causes a conflict that Git cannot resolve
automatically, an error dialog box reports that automatic merge failed.
The Branch status in the Git pane displays
Resolve the conflicts before proceeding.
Do not move or delete files outside of MATLAB® because this can cause errors on merge.
To keep your version of the file, right-click the
file and select Mark Conflict Resolved. The
Branch status in Git pane displays
The Modified Files list is empty, because you have not changed any
file contents. The local repository index version and your branch
version are identical.
Click Commit to commit your change that marks the conflict resolved.
If you merge a branch and there is a conflict in a model file, Git marks the file as conflicted and does not modify the contents. Right-click the file and select View Conflicts. The project opens a comparison report showing the differences between the file on your branch and the branch you want to merge into. Decide how to resolve the conflict. See Resolve Conflicts.
To remove all local changes, in the Branches dialog box, click Revert to Head.
In the Branches dialog box, from the Branches drop-down list, select a branch you want to delete. You cannot delete the current branch.
On the far right, click the down arrow and select Delete Branch.
You cannot undo deleting a branch.
