Hey all, I was reading an article about using a vcs vs. ftp. It all makes sense to start having a VCS, but im just sort of confused about the concept and getting started with it. Could someone give a sort of example of a workflow that includes developing and deploying using a VCS and github?
Indeed it can be quite confusing at first. This is a nice site that explains it: http://nakedstartup.com/2010/04/simple-daily-git-workflow
I can also recommend the Pro Git book for a thorough understanding of Git. You can read this book for free online.
Thanks! That helped me getting started…sorta.
I’m really trying to figure this out, but i dont really understand the process of sycing things with Github.
I load up Git and enter
git init [projectname]
then i change the directory
This makes a folder that i’m supposed to edit to put on github right?
I want to sync my existing project to github. So i drag my project folder onto the new one that i created with the init command.
Then in the bash, i enter
git add [foldername]
and then i check it with
I then enter
and the window turns into a vim editor and i have no idea what i’m doing!
Could i get some help please?
