Reverting a Single File with the Git Cli


When using an IDE like IntelliJ reverting a single file or even a single line of a file is easy using the IDE. But if you wanted to do this outside of an IDE how would you do that?

I have not worked out how to do this for a single line. But for a single file it is quite easy:

  • Get the last commit hash of a file: git log path/to/file
  • Checkout that commit to rever the file: git checkout <lastCommitHash> path/to/file

And that is it :)
