Create a git Repo#
In this lab you’ll create a new GitHub repo and clone a copy of it into your development environment. The project milestones will all require a URL to this repository. There are many good reasons to have a GitHub account. GitHub uses
git to manage your code and keep it safe with features to collaborate with other people. GitHub also builds your Docker containers automatically for you.
Before You Begin#
Git commits are signed with your name and email. You must enter them in to git before you can make a commit. If you have not already done so, run these commands:
$ git config --global user.email "email@example.com" $ git config --global user.name "yourname"
In your new repository get the SSH clone URL by clicking the Code button as shown:
Clone the repository in your development environment:
The URL must begin with git@github
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:...
Update the README.md file.
Add the change to the staged changes:
$ git add README.md
Commit the change
$ git commit
Push the commit
$ git push
The process will be demonstrated in class.
