How To Set Up A Git Repository?
A Git Repository is a cloud storage for your software
This is continuation of Git Basics series.
Local Git Repository:
Setting up a local repository is pretty simple. By local repository I mean making your project a git repo on your work-station.
Open git-bash. Navigate to root of your project folder. In my case it is — android-test.
Sowmya\android-test$ git init
Syncing With a Remote Repository:
Congrats! Now your project is a git repository. If you want to upload it to a remote repository(have a copy in the cloud) you could use a cloud hosting service like github, Gitlab or bitbucket. In my case, I am using a github repo.
So all you need to do is sign up and create a repository in Github.
Copy the https or ssh link to the repository.
$ git remote add origin email@example.com:username/your-repo-name.git
If you have cloned a repository using git clone the repository already has the link to the remote repo, so you can skip the previous step of — git init.
To index all your changes,
Commit your changes with an appropriate commit message.
$ git commit -m "Initial Commit"
Issue command push when your ready to push your changes to the remote repository.
$ git push -u origin master
You might need to provide your github credentials and once authenticated your repos will be pushed to your online repository.
Tada! Now you have successfully pushed to a remote repository.
