Answer #1

I have tried a lot of ways to revert local changes in Git, and it seems that this works the best if you just want to revert to the latest commit state.

git add . && git checkout master -f

I found a much more convenient and simple way to achieve the results above:

git add . && git reset --hard HEAD
