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 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


git init

git add

git commit -m “first commit”

git remote add origin

git push -u origin master


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

See what I add to my add Github account in coming weeks by joining my frequent newsletter



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




NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
