I made a new remote repository on bitbucket, then cloned it locally.
Made 1 commit and pushed the master branch to remote origin and made sure it's tracking origin/master branch.
Made 5 more commits that I did not push to the remote origin.
Tried interactive rebase. The ui appeared as it should.
I then removed the remote.
Tried interactive rebase again. Got the empty window error.
The command history shows:
git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree -c sequence.editor='/Applications/SourceTree.app/Contents/Resources/stree_gri' -c core.editor='/Applications/SourceTree.app/Contents/Resources/stree_gri' rebase -i --autosquash
There is no tracking information for the current branch.
Please specify which branch you want to rebase against.
See git-rebase(1) for details
git rebase <branch>
If you wish to set tracking information for this branch you can do so with:
git branch --set-upstream-to=<remote>/<branch> master
It seems interactive rebase will only work for repositories that have a remote.
Is that how it should be?
This workflow works for me (no remotes needed):
to figure out which commit (SHA or count) you want to consider your base
git branch RebaseFixup HEAD~3
create a temp RebaseFixup (or whatever name) branch from your rebase point. e.g. you want to rebase from 4 commits ago, doing pick/squash/fixup/etc on the last 3 commits. Use the SHA instead if you wish.
git rebase -i RebaseFixup
do your rebase
git branch -d RebaseFixup
cleanup the temporary branch
If anyone finds a better workflow, please also update the StackOverflow question here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/30625213/how-do-i-use-gits-interactive-rebase-with-a-local-only-repository-no-remote/30625214#30625214
