git basics - git init, git commit, git all, git *

create a new repository

git init

the following code can be typed in a terminal window, once you have installed git for your OS.

This will create a directory called git-test assuming you already have a directory called code under your main directory.

cd code
mkdir git-test
cd git-test
git init

the git init will create a new git repository


add and commit

git add filename

you can add a single file with git add filename.php

git add *

add all the files with git add *

run these commands in the git-test directory


Create a new file and add it

this will add a new file called index and add it and then commit it to the local git repository.

nano index.php

type in hello world! or whatever text you want in your file then type

git add index.php

then to commit the change type in

git commit -m "added the file index and some text"

Now we have created the index.php added some text into it and commit it to our local copy.

Pushing changes to a remote server

git push origin master


git remote add origin <server>

then go off to git hub and create a new repository which will then give you the key to add the origin to your repo.

git remote add origin

git branch -M main
git push -u origin main

You will also need to add the ssh key to allow pushing to this repo

otherwise you will get the following message Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

This is my test area for webdev. I keep a collection of code here, mostly for my reference. Also if i find a good link, i usually add it here and then forget about it.

You could also follow me on twitter or not... does anyone even use twitter anymore?

If you found something useful or like my work, you can buy me a coffee here. Mmm Coffee. ☕

Random CSS Property


The scroll-padding shorthand property sets scroll padding on all sides of an element at once, much like the padding property does for padding on an element.
