Moving Projects from Github Enterprise to Github
This is a quick and dirty guide to moving projects that are stored on your local machine in a github enterprise repo to a ‘regular’ github repo. It’s a little hacky, but it works.
Step 1: Create a new repo on github
You’ll want this repo to be on your github project site. Assuming you’re a GA student making a portfolio you might want to call your repo “my portfolio” or something similar.
Make sure to initialize the repo with a readme so you can clone it to your local machine immediately.
Step 2: Clone the repo to your local machine
Use the command line interface and the git clone command to clone it to your documents folder.
Step 3: Create the folder structure you want on your local machine
You should layout the repo however you want. Maybe a folder for each project. You can do this using the finder GUI or terminal, whichever you feel more comfortable with.
Step 4: Move your cleaned jupyter notebooks into the repo folders
You can click and drag the .ipynb files or pdf you want to the new cloned repo folder.
You may want to add a readme.md file that will display on the github page. You can include a description of each of the projects.
Step 5: Add, commit, and push the changes to your repo
Make sure you’re in your new repo folder
git add .
git commit -m “Message here”
Now double check your github site to make sure your new folders and notebook were pushed.
