Can I switch to a remote git branch through Matlab GUI?
21 views (last 30 days)
Is it possible to switch to a git branch which is remote and not, yet, local?
Under Source Control -> Branches, in the Branches pulldown, I can see all the available branches both local and remote (all prefaced with 'refs/remote/origin...'. If I select a local branch, I can switch to it. If I select a remote branch, I can not switch to it. If I check the remote branch out via the command line (git checkout myremotebranchname) and creates a local version then I switch to it.
Is it possible to do this all through the matlab GUI?

To check-out a specific remote branch in MATLAB
1. Go to "Source Control" -> "Branches"
2. Under "Branch and Tag Creation", manually enter:
3. Select the "foo" branch in the Branch Browser and click "Switch".
At present, there is no easier workflow where you can just select the branch from the list.
