How to create a Github repository with these simpler instructions despite whatever else you read online #github

These are the steps for Windows users just to create a simple repository. I wish this could be done with a GUI client or at least show how its done. Watch this video

Download mysgit. I tried the Github for Windows and it just failed at all levels. Once mysgit is installed, right click to on your project folder, choose Git bash here.

Also, create your repository on the guthub.com through the admin panel. You should get a a series of instructions once you enter the name and description. Follow these in your Git Bash

touch README.md

git init

git add README.md

git commit -m “first commit”

git remote add origin https://github.com/user/project-repository

git push -u origin master

 

Note you can also ‘git add .’ for everything.  This seems to work

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

I could not get the above working on either Linux or Windows. It is 2012 you know. Anyway watch this video as it should help:

Also, when right clicking on your folder, you can synch as but ensure to enter in correct remote Github URL. This may be an easier to do it using Tortoise Git
