Upload source code to github

  1. Create the remote repository, and get the URL such as [email protected]:/youruser/somename.git or https://github.com/youruser/somename.git

    If your local GIT repo is already set up, skips steps 2 and 3

  2. Locally, at the root directory of your source, git init

    2a. If you initialize the repo with a .gitignore and a README.md you should do a git pull {url from step 1} to ensure you don't commit files to source that you want to ignore 😉

  3. Locally, add and commit what you want in your initial repo (for everything, git add . then git commit -m 'initial commit comment')

  4. to attach your remote repo with the name 'origin' (like cloning would do) git remote add origin [URL From Step 1]

  5. Execute git pull origin master to pull the remote branch so that they are in sync.

  6. to push up your master branch (change master to something else for a different branch): git push origin master
