GIT SIMPLE CHEAT SHEET
Fast guide to upload and update your repo to the GIT repo of Fab Academy
SETUP GIT (to do only the first time)
Add your Git username and set your email
git config –-global user.name “YOUR_USERNAME”
Configure you email address for uploading
git config -–global user.email “jSmith@mail.com”
Check if you have an SSH KEY already
cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub (If you see a long string starting with ssh-rsa, you can skip the ssh-keygen step)
Generate your SSH key
ssh-keygen -t rsa -C "$your_email"
Now let´s see your keygen
Copy your key
Windows: clip < ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub Mac:pbcopy < ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub Linux xclip -sel clip < ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
Finally add the copied key to GIT on the web version
COPY YOUR ACADEMY PERSONAL REPO.

Clone your student repository
git clone email@example.com:fabacademy2017/yourlabname/yourstudentnumber.git
UPLOAD YOUR REPO ONLINE.
Add the new files you added to git
git add index.html to upload file by file
git add . to upload all the files at once
To download the last copy from the repository
git pull (for downloading the last copy of the repository)
To have a working copy of your repo
git merge (to have a working copy)
Now name your update, so you know what you changed with this push.
git commit -m ‘change you did’
Upload to the Repository
