The Command: git reset

The git reset command allows you to undo a pull by resetting your local repository to a previous commit. This will remove any changes you've made since the commit you're resetting to, so be sure to back up any important work!

To undo a pull, follow these steps:

  1. Find the commit hash of the commit you want to reset to. You can do this by running git log and finding the hash of the commit you want to reset to.
  2. Run the command git reset --hard <commit-hash>, replacing <commit-hash> with the actual hash of the commit you want to reset to. This will reset your local repository to the state it was in at that commit, removing any changes you've made since then.

And that's it! Your local repository should now be reverted back to its previous state.

Conclusion

Undoing a Git pull is simple with the git reset command. Just be sure to back up any important work before resetting your repository!
