How to use tagging in Git

In this tutorial, you have learned how to use Git with Windows, Mac, or Command Line and worked with branching. Now we’ll discuss tagging.

If you missed our introduction to tagging, you can revisit it here.

First, let’s set a few things up. Create a new directory named tutorial and initialize a Git repository with the git init command.

$ mkdir tutorial
$ cd tutorial
$ git init
Initialized empty Git repository in /Users/username/Desktop/tutorial/.git/

Next, create a new file named myfile.txt in the tutorial directory with the below content, and commit it.

Anyone can learn Git with this tutorial and Backlog
$ git add myfile.txt
$ git commit -m "first commit"
[main (root-commit) a73ae49] first commit
1 files changed, 1 insertions(+), 0 deletions(-)
  create mode 100644 myfile.txt

At this point, the history looks like this:
