Git with GitHub by Mind Map: Git with GitHub

1. Initial Setup

1.1. https://help.github.com/articles/caching-your-github-password-in-git/

1.2. Store your creds

1.2.1. MAC

1.2.1.1. tell git to put your next set of credentials in the OSX keychain

1.2.1.1.1. git config --global credential.helper osxkeychain

1.2.2. PC

1.3. create a directory where you'll store your github repository. (You don't have to store them all in the same place, but it makes sense). EG ~/github or C:\github

2. Day-to-Day Work

2.1. Oops! Did you start doing work before creating a new branch?

2.1.1. No prob. create the branch. what matters is what branch you are in when you commit

2.2. create a branch and checkout

2.2.1. git checkout -b <branch>

2.2.1.1. this combines

2.2.1.1.1. git branch <branch>

2.2.1.1.2. git checkout branch

2.3. do work

2.3.1. add changes to git (changed files, new files, new dir)

2.3.1.1. git add <file or parent dir> [<file or dir> <file or dir>...]

2.3.1.1.1. EG

2.3.1.2. this tells git to track these files for changes

2.3.2. show git changes

2.3.2.1. git diff

2.3.2.2. git status

2.3.2.3. git branch

2.3.3. commit work to the branch

2.3.3.1. git commit -m "<change message>"

2.3.3.2. until you do this, you really haven't done any work in the branch

2.3.4. push committed work to github

2.3.4.1. first time pushing this branch?

2.3.4.1.1. git push -u origin <branch>

2.3.4.2. additional pushes

2.3.4.2.1. git push

2.4. First: GitHub GUI

2.4.1. pull request

2.4.2. get approval

2.4.3. merge pull request

2.4.4. delete branch

2.5. Merge to Master & Clean Up

2.5.1. Clean up

2.5.1.1. git status

2.5.1.1.1. should be up-to-date

2.5.1.2. git checkout master

2.5.1.3. git pull

2.5.1.3.1. if you need to pull changes others have made

2.5.1.3.2. git pull origin master

2.5.1.4. git branch -d <old_branch>

3. Get Started

3.1. clone a repo

3.1.1. need to do this before you work w a repo

3.1.2. git clone <url>

3.2. OR, create a new repo

3.2.1. Easiest: Create repo in github & clone

3.2.1.1. Create repo in github

3.2.1.2. clone repo (see above)

3.2.1.3. add files (see Day-to-Day work)

3.2.2. OR, create a new repo from files that exist already

3.2.2.1. gotta fill this in
