Applying a Git stash non-destructively

Posted in Development and Git

git stash pop grabs a stash and dumps the changes on your current branch. It also deletes the stash. It can sometimes be useful to keep the stash if it’s something that you want to reapply on another branch.

git stash apply

Like git stash pop, you can apply a particular stash, rather than the most recently stashed stash. So if you want to apply the changes made in the next-to-last stash, as well as keep the stash in your stash list:

git stash apply stash@{1}
