I recently discovered hub and man this is really really cool. I’m starting to fork out projects and making PRs, but it seems that when I attempt to use
hub pull-request I get this error:
~/repo/learning_git/fakedir1% hub pull-request Error creating pull request: Unprocessable Entity (HTTP 422) Missing field: "head_sha" Missing field: "base_sha" No commits between jjasghar:master and jjasghar:blah
WTF man? What the hell does this mean? It seems I wasn’t the only one that had this problem. It seems that the work flow (at least in my case) was the problem. Here’s a quick fix to be able to open up a PR off a forked branch:
~/repo/learning_git/fakedir1% git add some_file ~/repo/learning_git/fakedir1% git commit -m "blah" ~/repo/learning_git/fakedir1% git push -u origin blah Counting objects: 7, done. Delta compression using up to 4 threads. Compressing objects: 100% (3/3), done. Writing objects: 100% (4/4), 351 bytes | 0 bytes/s, done. Total 4 (delta 2), reused 0 (delta 0) To firstname.lastname@example.org:jjasghar/learning_git.git 5224edf..88ad1af blah -> blah Branch blah set up to track remote branch blah from origin. ~/repo/learning_git/fakedir1% hub pull-request https://github.com/jjasghar/learning_git/pull/1
Pretty slick eh?
Bonus round you can attach your PR to an issue!
~/repo/learning_git/fakedir1% hub pull-request -i 3
