  • Last updated Apr 25, 2024

To update the local branch with the latest Code changes from the remote branch, you can use the git pull command. The git pull command is used in Git to fetch and integrate changes from a remote repository into your current local branch. It is a combination of two git commands, git fetch command followed by git merge command.


git pull origin <remote-branch-name>

In the above syntax, git pull is the base command used for fetching changes from a remote repository. Typically, origin refers to the remote repository from which your Git repository was initially cloned. <remote-branch-name> represents the specific name of the remote branch from which you want to retrieve changes. It corresponds to the branch within the remote repository that you want to synchronize with your local branch.


git pull origin my_remote_branch_name
