Git error on commit after merge - fatal: cannot do a partial commit during a merge
I ran a
git pull that ended in conflict. I resolved the conflict files and everything is fine now (I use mergetool also).
When I commit the resolved file with
git commit file.php -m "message" I get the error:
fatal: cannot do a partial commit during a merge.
I had the same issue before and using
-a in commit worked perfectly. I think it's not the prefect way because I don't want to commit all changes. I want to commit files separately with separate comments. How can I do that? Why git doesn't allow users to commit files separately after a merge? I could not find a satisfactory answer to this problem.
