Revert Gist Commits

Revert / Undo a Gist Commit

It was not exactly obvious. Here's how to revert a Gist commit!

Checkout the gist like a normal git repo:

# replace the Gist ID with your own
git clone git@github.com:cc13e0fcf2c348cc126f918e4a3917eb.git

Treat it like a normal repo. Edit, force push, etc.

Force Push

When you are ready, you will need to force push as the remote has newer commits:

git push -f origin master

Example: Revert the last commit to your Gist

Want to revert the last change?

git reset --hard HEAD~1 && git push -f origin master

Yay! You reverted!
