# Set up a new repository

Published on May 25th, 2020

Are you new to using Git? Then this is for you.

## 2. Create a repository

Just create a new project with whatever you wanted. For this, you can just create git-starter-repo or something like that.

## 3. Initialize git in your project directory

Now, go to your project directory and initialize git by doing the following:


git init



Add your files to the repository by doing the following:





Or if you want add selected files:


git add file_1 file_2



## 5. Commit your changes

Before you push your changes, you need to write a message about what changes are done:


git commit -m "this is my first commit"



## 6. Link your project to the repo

Do the following to link your project to the repo that you've created in step 1:


git remote add origin https://github.com/youraccount/repositoryname.git



## 7. Push changes

You can decide which branch you wanted to push but initially, you'll have one branch, which is called master:


git push -u origin master



Or if you have an existing branch, just replace master with yourbranchname.

Hope that helps you out!
