Step-by-step procedure to post your Django project on GitHub

  • Open your project folder.

  • Create a virtual environment

  • Virtual environment isolates our project. Anything we install within the virtual environment does not affect the rest

of the computer and vice-versa.

  • on cmd: vitualenv . (to install virtual environment)

  • Activate the virtual environment by running activate.bat files within the scripts folder.

git status git commands

  • git init

This creates a .git folder on our project folder that means git is initialized.

  • git status

This shows all the folders that are not added to git.

  • git add -all

This adds all the files to git.

  • git commit -m "commit message"

This commits all folders to git.

  • git log

This shows the log of all commits in our repository. This displays most recent commits first.

  • Now we need to push our existing repository. First, we will need to add push our remote origin which is our remote
    repository that we created on GitHub. Copy the HTTPs web URL and paste in cmd.

  • git remote add origin weburl

  • Now, we will need to push our local repository to our remote repository or GitHub account we use.

  • git push -u origin master

  • In case we get an error 'failed to push some reps to weburl, run below commands

  • git pull --rebase origin master

  • git push origin master

  • Now we can see your project on your GitHub repository.

                     *** THANK YOU ***

Hello Arun, This batch file(activate.bat) found in the Scripts folder created when we create a virtual environment for our Django project. This helps to keep dependencies required by different projects separate by creating isolated Python virtual environments for them.
