- Create a Github account
- Create a new Github repository
- Install Git on local
For MacOS, the easiest way is to install via homebrew
brew install git
cd to the website directory and run
git init #initialize a empty Git on local. git checkout -b master #switch to a new branch master git status #display all files
git add . #add the files git commit -m "initial commit"
Here I got the message for Github username
*** Please tell me who you are.
git config –global user.email “email@example.com”
git config –global user.name “Your Name”
to set your account’s default identity.
Follow the instruction and put the email address and my name.
git config --global user.email "firstname.lastname@example.org" git config --global user.name "githubusername"
Copy the git link from Github repository, and run
git remote add origin https://github.com/hasturhu/asteroid.git git push origin master #push all files to master branch
It asked me about the username and password on Github. Enter the credentials as instructed.
Username for ‘https://github.com’:
Password for ‘https://email@example.com’:
As per tutorial, the website should be published now (website link and status is under
Settings on repository).
Mine got a 404 issue. Not sure why, but I managed to fix it thanks to Nycen.
git commit --allow-empty -m "Trigger rebuild"
Tadaa! Now the site is finally on live! I might grab some ice-cream for celebration
:icecream: ★,°:.☆(￣▽￣)/:.°★ 。
Anyways, whenever there’s a change on local, run the following code to push update to Github.
git add . git commit -m "some commit messages" git push origin master
