How to push git tag to remote (With Example)

Once you can create a git tag on your local, it's time to push it to remove so that it can be deployed for the project release.

This blog post will guide you on how to push git tag to the remote.

Git push tag to remote

Pushing a tag in git to a remote is similar to pushing a branch to a git remote. The only difference is that you need to mention the tag name after the "git push" command as by default this command only pushed the branch.

$ git push origin v1.0
