To merge two directories into the same branch using Git, you can follow these steps:

  1. Start by checking out the branch where you want to merge the directories. For example, if you want to merge the directories into the master branch, you would run: git checkout master
  2. Use the git merge command to merge the directories into the current branch. You can specify the directory paths you want to merge using the -s option. For example, if you want to merge directory1 and directory2 into the current branch, you would run: git merge --allow-unrelated-histories -s theirs
  3. Resolve any conflicts that may arise during the merge process. Git will try to automatically merge the directories, but if there are conflicts, you will need to resolve them manually by editing the conflicted files.
  4. Once you have resolved any conflicts and completed the merge, commit the changes with the git commit command: git commit -m "Merge directories directory1 and directory2"
  5. Finally, push the changes to the remote repository if necessary: git push origin master


After completing these steps, the two directories should be merged into the same branch in your Git repository.
