Stash changes away in Git to work on urgent matters first


- you've made some changes in your current branch but realized you're in the wrong branch
- you've gone off track in making changes that doesn't relate to the branch story
- you need to drop whatever you're doing right now and apply some urgent patch

Git stash to the rescue!

# Stash changes
git stash save "message for later reference"

# List stashes
git stash list

# Apply stash
git stash apply stash@{STASH_ID}

# Drop/delete a stash
git stash drop stash@{STASH_ID}

# Drop/delete last stash
git stash pop

# Clear all stashes
git stash clear

# Quick & dirty stashing
git stash
git stash pop
