I've been using people's code from GitHub for a couple of years and without it, I'd be totally stuck in my various projects. I want to give back.
I had a mixture of confusion and laziness around how GitHub works, which got in my way. I eventually figured it out, but it took some bumping around.
This Instructable will explain the basics of creating a Git repository, how it works and how to upload it onto GitHub.
I'll be using the commands from the Terminal application on the Mac, but the principles can be extended to other platforms as well.
What is Git vs. GitHub?
Git is a source code version control system, which a series of "commits" or snapshots of your code. You make the commits manually.
GitHub is a website (github.com) where you can publish your Git repositories for public download and possible collaboration.
