Command line git usage
Using GitHub
1.Sign up for Github - make yourself an account with a cool name!
2. Start - from your GitHub account, create a new repositiories by clicking Tab then click "New" green button. Or you can "fork" (dirty sounding, isn't it?) from someone elses page. This is like making your own copy. Under this Repository, you can create multiple files by clicking plus button next to your repository(folder) name.
3. Give a name that will becomes your repository(repo), equalvent to "directory folder in explorer".
4. After creating account and repository, you need to download actual git in your local machine or you can start with the link.
I used windows - I'm on Windows 7. I accepted the default except I selected the preference to run everything through the Windows cmd prompt.
4.In my /user/<username> folder I made another folder called "github." - this is where your Github work will be done. If you want to work from somwhere else this is a good time to decide where.
5.CD to /user/<username>/github/
6.Type this stuff
> git config --global "Your Name Here"
>git config --global "
(use the sign up information you used for your github account)
>git init (if you change where you want your github folder to be on your local machine,
make the change and then type this again from the new location to reset where Git sees your work.
7. Go back to your github account and from the repository you created copy the path under "HTTPS clone URL"
8. Type this stuff
> git clone <the HTTPS clone URL>
> <>
> <user.pwd>
9. Look! You have a cloned Github repository on your local machine. Success! (Unless it didn't work.
Then I feel your pain.)
SPECIAL: Adding git creditial in windows machine:
Here's where you start to work!
