Git Learning!

In this git tutorial, we will learn how to use git to create a git repository in our directory we want to work with git in. We will go over the git status and git init commands in git.

Creating a New Git Repository

Once we have git in our desired git repository, we must now use git to officially commit our changes to the git repository. git commit is one of the most common git commands.

Committing and More

When working with git, it is important that your git repository is safe. Git Branch is one feature that helps you experiment without losing any code from your git repository. Git branch is an important command and will help to keep your git repository safe.


Learn how to take git branches and use git merge to combine them into the git master branch. Then, learn how to correctly delete desired git branches.

Deleting and Merging Branches

If you mess up on a commit in git, use git revert to restore the repository to the previous git commit. Git revert is the safest way to restore previous git commits.


In order to keep your git repository safe, you must use a gitignore file. This hides files from the git repository. GIt cache is also important to keeping your repository safe. This is an essential git command if you are going to be using github to host your git repository.

Git Cache and gitignore
