Visual Studio Code has native support of Git. Also you can use other Source Control Management (like VSTS, SVN) simply by installing additional extension.
What this does is invoking git commands from it’s interface. So to keep this working you have to install Git in your system (git-scm.com) and make it available on command line.
Next set a user by typing those commands:
$ git config --global user.name "Jan Nowak"
$ git config --global user.email firstname.lastname@example.org
GitHub uses the email address set in your Git configuration to associate commits pushed from the command line with your GitHub account!
Keep in mind that there are 3 levels of git config:
1. project: only available for the current project (.git/config in the project’s directory)
2. global: available for all projects for the current user
3. system: available for all the users/projects
Now you have access commands through command palette (Ctrl+Shift+P) and control panel.
There are two ways for doing this:
1. Clone existing Git repo from a remote source like GitHub or VSTS.
2. Initialize a repo locally and push it to a remote.
git add .
git commit -m "first commit"
git remote add origin https://github.com/pythonsway/something.git
git push -u origin master
Cloning automatically sets up your local master branch to track the remote master branch.
only downloads the data to your local repository, it doesn’t automatically merge it with any of your work or modify what you’re currently working on.
fetches data from the server you originally cloned from and automatically tries to merge it into the code you’re currently working on.
Changes are merged automatically. When they are referring to the same source the conflicts occur.
This file lists things that shouldn’t be tracked, basically you should consider to include such things as:
1. Programming language specific stuff (GitHub has good templates)
2. Secret informations
3. .vscode folder
git pull, or
git push to a remote repository using HTTPS URLs on the command line, you’ll be asked for your GitHub username and password. To get rid of it you can use:
1. a credential helper so Git will remember your GitHub username and password every time it talks to GitHub.
2. GitHub Desktop
3. ssh connection link
But after all still you can do this in terminal…
