git commit -m vs. git commit -am
Seems easy but I just don't get it. I am in the root of my application.
Here is my workflow.
git add .
git commit -m "added a new feature some files changed"
git push heroku master
This usually works. All my changes are pushed.
But sometimes I have a file that I change but when I push to Heroku the changes are not there for THAT ONE FILE... but for most of the files the changes are there...
But if I do
git add .
git commit -am "added a new feature some files changed"
git push heroku master
Everything (all changes) are pushed to Heroku
