In my earlier post, we learnt basics of Github and understood how to push and pull a repo using Git command line tools. Hate command line? Following steps will help you to get started with Github using simple GUI tools. Lets get started with creating a repo and pushing a simple text file.
Download SourceTree or SmartGit. I prefer SourceTree cause of its cool looking interface.
Go to Github.com and create a new Github account. If you already have an account, sign in with your credentials.
Click on create new repository.
Now open your GUI client(SourceTree or SmartGit). Configure it with your credentials while installing.
Now, click on add a new repo, give path of your Github repo, system folder and click on Clone.
Once cloned, double-click on repo.
Once done go to folder where you cloned repo and add files/folder. Right click and add files/folder to index, once added to index right-click and click on commit.
Click on push and congratulations on pushing your changes to server successfully.
