The git documentation seems really good so far but it is a little verbose. Here's a fast bullet list to get you going immediate. It assumes that you have a GitHub account and you made a repo through the website.
- Open git bash
cd to the directory where you want to put your repo. (
mkdir if you need to)
git clone <your repo url on GitHub>
- add all your files/do work
git add .
git commit - commits all your changes
- This will open up a vim editor. Add whatever comment you want for this commit.
- Press Esc to get out of Insert Mode (press
a to get back into edit mode)
:w to save your comment
:q to exit the vim editor
git push- pushes that commit up to the repo
Another good to know
git checkout -- .
