Find out which remote branch a local branch is tracking
To list down all branches that are currently being tracked, we can use the following command.
git branch -av
> git branch -av * feature/client 21e5135 Fixed response for trip status and truck status master e633095 Merge branch 'master' of https://bitbucket.org/poopcodeteamteam/toolv2-chatbot into release remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master remotes/origin/develop 1fcfc36 Merged in feature/developer (pull request #60) remotes/origin/feature/devops 1d3de6c Merge branch 'develop' of https://bitbucket.org/poopcodeteamteam/toolv2-chatbot into feature/devops remotes/origin/feature/client 21e5135 Fixed response for trip status and truck status remotes/origin/hotfixes 0846101 conflicts resolved remotes/origin/master e633095 Merge branch 'master' of https://bitbucket.org/poopcodeteamteam/toolv2-chatbot into release remotes/origin/release 6b7eeb1 Merged in develop (pull request #54)
To show only the current branch with the tracked files, we can use..
> git status -b --porcelain ## feature/client...origin/feature/client M bin/www M package.json M src/config/logger.js M src/routes/wbhook.js ?? back_logs/
Another simple way is to use cat .git/config
> cat .git/config [core] repositoryformatversion = 0 filemode = true bare = false logallrefupdates = true [remote "origin"] url = https://firstname.lastname@example.org/poopcodeteam/toolv2-chatbot.git fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/* [branch "master"] remote = origin merge = refs/heads/master [branch "feature/client"] remote = origin merge = refs/heads/feature/client
