Git Tag Mini Cheat Sheet

Just as a kind of mini cheat sheet for using git tags:

Adding a tag:

  • git tag tag_name
  • git tag
    Should show your new tag.
  • git push origin --tags or git push origin :tag_name
    Because git push doesn't push tags.

Removing a tag:

  • git tag -d tag_name
  • git tag
    Should no longer show your tag.
  • git push origin :refs/tags/tag_name
    Because git push –tags doesn’t push deleted tags.
Hope that helps.
