Git: Stash Everything

Running the git stash command will take all the changes to tracked files in the working directory and stash them away. You can tack on the --include-untracked flag to make sure that untracked files are also included in the stash.

You can take this a step further with the --all flag. This will stash everything included files that you’ve told git to ignore.

You probably don’t want to do this. I ran this command and realized after the command hung for about 10 seconds that I had just stashed the node_modules directory.

See man git-stash for more details.
