Creating a New GitHub Repository

There are several ways to create a new GitHub repository. Here is one way I like to do it:

  1. Create a new repository with the “New repository” button.

  2. Fill out the “Repository name”.

  3. Select “Add a README file”.

  4. Click “Create repository”.

  5. In your local terminal, clone the new repository with the following command:

    git clone<username>/<repo-name>
  6. Copy or move the files you want to the folder.

  7. Run the following code to add the new files to your GitHub repository:

    cd /path/to/<repo-name>
    git add *
    git commit -m "adding files"
    git push
