What Is Git? | Git Tips and Triks | Git FAQ
🤭What is Git?
Git is a version control system that allows us to work together with other developers.
🧐What does it mean to be a version control system?
It means that Git is primarily used to track changes you make to files, keep a record of these changes, and also makes it easy to revert to a specific version if needed.
🤓How does it allow me to work with other developers?
Git makes collaboration easier, by allowing developers to clone/fork your code, with the correct permissions, allows changes by multiple people to all be merged into one source, and you can all work on one codebase together.
🤔How to access Git?
You can access Git via a Command-line Interface (terminal), or a desktop app that has a graphical user interface (like GitHub).
🤯What are Git Repositories?
A Git repository or repo (for short) is where you store all your project files and your history (revisions).
🤫Why host a Remote Repository?
Storing your local project with an online host like GitHub gives you a one-stop location where your project with all your revisions is uploaded. Storing your project with an online host is what will allow others to collaborate with your code.
👉🏼Tomorrow we'll be discussing the Git commands you need to be able to achieve this goal but on a high overview to be able to host a Remote Repository we need to:
1. Setup our repository locally.
2. Link our local repository to our remote repository.
3. Save and commit our changes to our files.
4. Once it is linked and our files are committed, we will upload (push) our files into our remote repository which will include our revisions.
