Question: How can I add the contents of an existing folder to git version control?
The tutorial here covers the case of making a directory and then adding source contents to it. I have some source code in a folder that is path dependent and don't want to move it.
So, how can I just go into my folder and make it a repository?
Final working solution using @Arrigo response and @Samitha Chathuranga comment, I'll put all together to build a full response for this question:
Open Git Bash console and type command 1 from second picture(go to your project folder on your PC)
git add --all
Type command 2 from second picture
git commit -m "my first commit"
git push -u origin master
Note: if you get error unable to detect email or name, just type following commands after 5th step:
git config --global user.email "yourEmail" #your email at Bitbucket git config --global user.name "yourName" #your name at Bitbucket
