From web developers to app developers, Git and GitHub are useful to anyone who writes code and works with other developers. So what are they all about and why should you start using them?
A Git repository (or repo for short) contains all of the project les and the entire revision history. Learn the Git command to make a repository.
To use Git, you must first install it. Installing Git is different on Mac and PC, so follow the appropriate instructions below depending on your operating system.
Git allows you to work more easily with other developers. Because you want to know who worked on a file and how to contact them, you need to tell Git your name and email.
While there is a lot you can do via the command line interface, the main thing you need to know how to do for Git is to navigate to a folder.
Think of Git as keeping a list of changes to files. So how do we tell Git to record our changes? Each recorded change to a file (or set of files) is called a commit. Read to learn more.
There will be some files that you don't want Git to track. You can use a .gitignore file to list the files and/or folders that Git should ignore.
A ReadMe file is a standard place for instructions or documentation that you want to share with people about a repo. Here's how to add a ReadMe file to your Git repo.
