To rename files in Git, you have to use
git mv command. This command takes two arguments:
Let's say you want to rename
transaction.csv then run the following command:
$git mv sales.csv transaction.csv
You will find that the above operation has moved the file to a staging area.
$git status On branch master Changes to be committed: (use "git reset HEAD
..." to unstage) renamed: medals.html -> trophies.html
To confirm the renaming, you have to commit the changes.
$git commit -m "Rename sales to transaction."
