It’s very important to know the commands behind the UI in Visual Studio; in this post, I just explain the basics that you need to work with Git from the command line:
Set the global settings, but first display its value.
git config –global -l
N.b. If there is no set value, it will tell you "no such a file," but if there is data it will be displayed as the following:
- I can edit this file using VIM, the most famous of all *nix editors.
To quit, type
:q +enter; you can key "i" to enter text and save by pressing "ESC" and
:wqand enter, this will commit the message you typed. In your current state, to just come out without committing, you can do
Navigate to the working directory and type:
This will copy all files locally. The vodeblock below carries basic references for adding new files, committing, changing the branch, and publishing changes:
git init git clone https://github.com/youraccount/rep
# Add new files git add . # Get status git status # Commit git commit -m ”your commit message” # Change branch git checkout branchName # Push git push https://github.com/youraccount/rep
If you open the file without a proper shutdown, it will create a swap file which you can’t open again smoothly. You just need to delete that swap file or close the file as mentioned before.
