Git Question

Add Xcode project to github repo?

I have JUST created a new github repo on the website. Keep in mind that I am a noob but can do basic things in terminal. Anyway, so I just created the repo on my account on github.com and didn't do a single thing to it yet.

So all I want to do is take my Xcode project folder and upload it to my new github repo. How do I do this via terminal?


The best way really is to follow the instructions GitHub gives you:

First, go the correct directory

cd <directory of your Xcode project>

It sound like you've already got a local Git project from Xcode. If that's true, skip this code block.

git init .
git add .
git commit -s
<type in a commit message>

Last, push into your repository. The following is copied directly from my own github account, after I created a new "test" repo. Change the "dhalperi/test" part.

Push an existing repository from the command line

git remote add origin git@github.com:dhalperi/test.git
git push -u origin master
