Exporting changes to a branch

This article provides steps for exporting your codespace changes to a branch.

GitHub Codespaces is available for organizations using GitHub Team or GitHub Enterprise Cloud. GitHub Codespaces is also available as a limited beta release for individual users on GitHub Free and GitHub Pro plans. For more information, see "GitHub's products."

Exporting changes to a branch

While using GitHub Codespaces, you may want to export your changes to a branch without launching your codespace.

This can be useful when you have hit a spending limit or have a general issue accessing your codespace.

To export your changes:

  1. Navigate to the "Your codespaces" page at github.com/codespaces. Or, for an individual repository, click the Code menu.

  2. Click the ellipsis (...) to the right of the codespace you want to export from.

  3. Select Export changes to branch.
