re: How do you commit in GitHub ? VIEW POST


I start working on a project, when I need to add the first commit I

  • git init
  • Head over to Gitlab (where I host most my personal work),
  • Create a repo copy the remote setting and drop in in terminal
  • gitit "some commit message"
  • If I want to experiment I create branches

That's it.

I've set gitit to do this:

gitit() {
    git add .
    git commit -a -m "$1"
    git push --all

Quick and easy

(I do the same with Github)


As you said Quick and easy, I like it, I mostly like this feature of creating a branch, I've seen the idea three times in this thread.

Anyway, did you moved to gitlab after M$ bought GiThub ? ;) ;) We should post a subject like this to discuss it here should bring a lot of discussions


I create branches because I feel it is a clearer pinpoint to states I might want to visit later on.

No, I started using gitlab because of the unlimited private repos. So every time I'm creating a new project I "throw" it in gitlab worry free whether or not it's worth of public use. I used to use bitbucket but gitlab's interface is nicer

And since starting dabbling in web dev I had to change computers two times. The first was a horrible experience, me thinking I backed up everything when I didn't. The second time, having had everything (dev related) in GitLab, the transition was so smooth.

Now I have started using GitHub as a public portfolio (though it's still empty apart from code I've created for tutorials I wrote)

I had this logic in the beggining to use other sites then GitHub for private repos then I decided to just use GitHub and when I have to treat a spciale topic or a specifical technology I just create another account (not in the sens of fake) and work on it to let people have a complete idea of what am doing, for instance I'll be creating a repo just for react in the furure
