I am new to git and github and I am having trouble using Git. My path for Git looks something like this
git add index.html
index.html did not match any files
On branch master
Your branch is up-to-date with origin
nothing to commit, working tree clean.
For adding files using
git add , you need to have the files inside the local git repository (the local git repository will have a .git folder in it).
You cannot add some files which are outside of this folder to the repo. The files in a local repo are associated to the .git folder.
If the folder is an existing one and is not tracked by git, then do a
git init inside the root folder whose content you want to track. This initialises a new git repo.
