Reasons I use the git cherry-pick command  ↦

Here is an example to help you understand the importance of cherry-picking. Suppose you have made several commits in a branch, but you realize it’s the wrong branch! What do you do now? Either you repeat all your changes in the correct branch and make a fresh commit, or you merge the branch into the correct branch. Wait, the former is too tedious, and you may not want to do the latter. So, is there a way? Yes, Git’s got you covered.

I’m a pretty big fan of cherry-pick, too. I don’t use it often, but every time I do… 👨‍🍳💋
