Adding a local repo to Github

3:26 AM , 0 Comments

You created a local repo in your m/c and then want to push it to github

The github repo for your project has already been created on github.

Either you have created it or has been added as one of the collaborators.

When you create a project

$ rails new app1 --skip-active-record --skip-bundle

and want this to be associated to the repo

cd to the project folder,

$ cd app1

and then execute
$git init
$ git remote add origin

then do

$git pull origin master
$git push

So, the local repo has been pushed to the remote github repo
