GitHub Standard Fork & Pull Request Workflow

Whether you're trying to give back to the open source community or collaborating on your own projects, knowing how to properly fork and generate pull requests is essential. Unfortunately, it's quite easy to make mistakes or not know what you should do when you're initially learning the process. I know that I certainly had considerable initial trouble with it, and I found a lot of the information on GitHub and around the internet to be rather piecemeal and incomplete - part of the process described here, another there, common hangups in a different place, and so on.

In an attempt to coallate this information for myself and others, this short tutorial is what I've found to be fairly standard procedure for creating a fork, doing your work, issuing a pull request, and merging that pull request back into the original project.

Creating a Fork

Just head over to the GitHub page and click the "Fork" button. It's just that simple. Once you've done that, you can use your favorite git client to clone your repo or j

Installing node via windows subsystem for linux

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update - Installing Node.js on Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)

Windows just released the windows subsystem for linux feature to the public with its latest windows fall creator update, if you are not familiar with this feature it allows you to run linux binaries natively on windows - F.A.Q.

Enabling WSL

The feature is not enabled by default and you need to activate it, you can do it via powershell (with admin rights):

Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux

Or you can open: Control-Panel -> Programs -> Turn Windows feature on ro off, and click the "windows subsystem for linux (beta)" button.

Installing node via windows subsystem for linux


Below is a comparison from one of the resources I used. I don't think the comparison is done using the same hardware, but the big take away is that Windows without WSL is a no-go, and Windows WSL underperforms for Linux on bare metal and even Virtual Linux on a Windows Guest. I still have to do this comparison myself using my Udoo with dualboot.

System Performance
Mac Mini 2012 Core i5 10GB RAM 217.6 sec
Windows WSL 335 sec
Linux Mint Bare Metal 182.4 sec
VirtualBox 124 sec

Pushing to Multiple Git Repos

If a project has to have multiple git repos (e.g. Bitbucket and Github) then it's better that they remain in sync.

Usually this would involve pushing each branch to each repo in turn, but actually Git allows pushing to multiple repos in one go.

If in doubt about what git is doing when you run these commands, just

This enables portable SSH keys in cmder, enabling you to have full SSH access using cmder portably on a USB (for example). Please note that when you ssh-keygen, it will still default to %USERPROFILE%, so you will either have to change the path on generation, or manually move the keys to your %CMDER_ROOT%\config\.ssh directory.
