Up and Running with Git Transcripts
Chapter: Our first git repository
Lecture: First repository introduction
0:03 It's time to start writing some code,
0:05 creating some repositories and doing source control things that we've wanted to do all along.
0:12 So in this chapter let's talk through the plan.
0:14 What are we going to do?
0:15 What are we going to cover?
0:16 We're going to create a hosted,
0:18 Git repository over on git hub.
0:22 This is going to mean that we're going to need to have an account.
0:24 We're gonna clone this originally mostly empty repository but not entirely empty repository over to our
0:31 local machine so that we can work on it.
0:34 We're going to connect this local repo with some of our UI tools and our editors
0:39 we're gonna write some python code.
0:42 I'm feeling maybe a flask simple Hello World app is coming along.
0:46 What do you think? We're going to also work with some externally added files,
0:50 right. We do something in our editor.
0:52 Our editor might automatically do some of these get steps for us.
0:56 We'll see how to work with them.
0:58 Even when that doesn't happen. We're going to teach git and our tools that use
1:04 git how to ignore certain files that are never supposed to be saved into the repository
1:09 we want to commit those changes.
1:13 The ones that should be sent over into our local cloned copies are distributed part of
1:19 git locally. And then finally,
1:22 when it persists of changes back to git hub to be shared with the broader community
1:26 and honestly ourselves. If we happen to come back at a different time on a
1:30 different computer. As I already said,
1:32 you're going to need a free git hub account,
1:36 you can do almost everything you do on git hub entirely for free.
1:39 Sometimes companies pay for github.
1:41 You may wonder how Git hub which offers all this free stuff,
1:44 actually exists as a business. There are ways in which github has services you
1:49 might pay for, but as an individual that's very unlikely that you're going to run
1:53 into it these days. So before you go on,
1:56 go over here to github.com/sign up and sign up.
2:01 If you have an account great.
2:02 If you don't make sure you create one before we get going.
