I have a repo called
You have to add an other
remote. Usually, you have an
origin remotes, which points to the github (maybe bitbucket) repository you cloned it from. Here's a few example of what it is:
firstname.lastname@example.org:some-user/some-repo(this is ssh, it allows you to push/pull without having to type your ids every single time)
C:/some/folder/on/your/computerYes! You can push to an other directory on your own computer.
So, when you
$ git push origin master
origin is replaced with it's value: the url
So, it's basically just a shortcut. You could type the url yourself each time, it'd do the same!
Note: you can list all your
remotes by doing
git remote -v.
How can I then get different-repo to push remotely to different-repo because currently it is pushing to react.
I'm guessing you want to create a second repository, right? Well, you can create an other
remote (or replace the current
origin) with the url to this repo!
git remote add <remote-name> <url>
So, for example:
$ git remote add different-repo https://github.com/your-username/your-repo
And then, just
$ git push different-repo master
git remote set-url <remote-name> <url>
git remote set-url origin https://github.com/your-username/your-repo
