Research Topics

Using Github as a work log

Here are some directions on getting up and running with git and github.

Initial Setup

  1. Download and install Git (in linux it's as easy as sudo apt-get install git git-core. Not sure about other platforms)
  2. Get a user account at github.com
  3. Click on the New Repository button
  4. Fill out the info (note that you'll be using the project name to set up git on your machine)
  5. Click next (or continue or whatever)
  6. You'll be given directions similar to these. FOLLOW THESE! Especially if you're working on an ACL. When finished, click 'continue' and rejoice.
 git init
 git config user.name '<YOUR NAME>'
 git config user.email <YOUR EMAIL>
 touch README
 git add README
 git commit -m 'first commit'
 git remote add origin git@github.com:<GITHUB USERNAME>/<PROJECT NAME>.git
 git push origin master


 git add <filename>
 git diff
 git commit
 git add -P
 git commit -m '<LOG MESSAGE>'
 git push origin master
 git reset --hard


I am by no means a git master (I just use it because I like github) I have been using it for personal projects for some time. Feel free to ask questions of me about git if you run into trouble. you can email nate@cs.earlham.edu. There is also good documentation here: [1]
