Git: Remove committed file after push

+1 vote

Is there a possibility to revert a committed file in Git? I've pushed a commit to GitHub and then I realized that there's a file which I didn't want to be pushed

  1. check out the previous (unchanged) state of your file; notice the double dash

    git checkout HEAD^ -- /path/to/file
    
  2. commit it:

    git commit -am "revert changes on this file, not finished with it yet"
    
  3. push it, no force needed:

    git push
    
  4. get back to your unfinished work, again do (3 times arrow up):

    git checkout HEAD^ -- /path/to/file
