why use git

git very useful to manage versions of your projects that we can say git is version controlling tool. If you have built something and commit your code to git repository hosting service ( ex: GitHub, Bitbucket, codebase etc.) and push the code. if you change in your existing project and your project is not working so you can get you previous version code from GitHub. So we will discuss the git command in this post. We are using GitHub to show how git commands work with the example.

Install git tool on your Machine

Go to the download page of git-scm or open this link in your browser ( https://git-scm.com/downloads ). git is compatible with all operating system choose which OS you are using and install as usual all software install.

  4. Create repository

 

after creating repository this page will show with README.md file with commit message “initial commit”. The main things to know the clone URL. click on clone or download button then there will be a box appears in this box a https URL in the input box and just click on copy button.

Now open git bash command line interface and going to D:\github directory and pass this command.

git commit -m "type here your commit message"

after this command pass a push command to push on GitHub server.

git push origin master

Now your files onGitHubb servers and there is a screenshot. you can see there are count 2 commits, 1 branch, 0 releases and 1 contributor.

this is basic talk about git and GitHub. So, if you have any problem to getting started with this then comment below. And if you seems wrong in this post so please let me know. Thanks.
