accidentally rolled back to a previous commit in git
I am new to Git and not sure what I did wrong. I have bunch of branches along side master for example - filling-layout, data-upload, sign-in-out etc. I had moved on to a new branch, when I had to change something in my layout. So I thought it would be better to go back to filling-layout branch and make the changes there. So I typed in
git checkout filling-layout and that erased a bunch of things that I had in the layout and its back to a previous version and all my changes disappeared. I thought I had committed filling-layout after all my changes and uploaded it to github and heroku.
- Any idea how I can get it back?
- Also can anyone explain why this could happen?
- What are the best practices when you have to make a small change that could potentially go into the previously committed branch?
- Is it better to make a new branch or you can checkout the existing branch to make the change.
