I’ve been using
git for years now but there are commands I use every day while others, not so much.
Create a new repository on GitHub at https://repo.new/. Then locally, run:
echo "# anything" >> README.md
git add README.md
git commit -m "first commit"
git branch -M main
git remote add origin https://github.com/<your-gh-username>/<repository-name>
git push -u origin main
Removing something from git
Because I forgot my
.gitignore and the node_modules directory got committed again. Create the
.gitignore file this time and run:
git rm -r --cached node_modules
git commit -am "Removed node_modules directory"
Committing a modified file in a submodule
cd inside the submodule directory then add and commit to git from there. You can then go to your project directory and add and commit to git as normal.
