Module 02 Ex 01
I made some mistakes so I edited the bitmap a little


(Vincent Sijben) #245

wow, am I the only one loosing my mind on the exact questions of this module 2.2?

I do understand that during the period of time some things have changed on that page, and older posts dont reflect the current question, but…

  1. On the command line: create a repository from the command line called “individual-work.”
    So i do:
    git init individual-work
    cd individual-work/

  2. On GitHub.com, create a repository.
    I create the repo and locally I do:
    git remote add origin https://github.com/vincentsijben/individual-work.git

  3. On GitHub.com, upload your first week’s assignments to the “Individual” repository.
    I upload a file called readme.md with text in it through the “upload an exisiting file” option on github.com

  4. Use the command line to bring the commits back down to your local repository.
    I now do
    git fetch
    I dont get the file locally.

So I see several posts with people committing locally, but that is not what’s being asked…
I also see people using pull, but thats not what we’ve ‘learned’ yet…

Or does “bring the commits back” mean exactly what @mozzadrella is saying here https://youtu.be/jCxKg2J4pnM?t=150 , so we don’t have to bring the file to our local machine (yet)…

Could someone please help me out? I’m loosing my mind :slight_smile:

Edit: so yeah, after viewing 2.3 and 2.4 suddenly it’s clear to me, that indeed, we only wanted the commit info, not the actual files back to our local repo.

I have to do some small research to find out about ‘git remote -v’ and how to push. Isn’t there a flow of how these learning should be done? i am a bit confused


(Asaolu Elijah) #249

You should recieve an invitation mail, from here you can easily get to the repo page


(eChris) #250

I got the invite. thanks


(Asaolu Elijah) #251

Hi @mozzadrella i just finished the module 1 exercise, i was thinking there will be a page where i could be able to track the modules 've completed and the one’s 've not, but i couldnt see any.

And also, after completing a module, all i have to do is post a screenshot right?
Thanks in anticipation :100:


(Asaolu Elijah) #252

I got an error during the first push, i had to force it using git push --force origin master
But i got it all working :blush: :100:


(eChris) #253

I always try to find out what usually cause errors in any thing I am doing. using --force as an argument will not help to find out what caused it


(Asaolu Elijah) #254

I guess the --force command is only used when pushing to your online repository,
This command will ignore all errors and force the push

I felt that this assignment was a bit confusing in the directions.


(Alan Rynne) #258

This was fun! im not sure if I understood the steps correctly but here it is. If I’m missing something, please let me know @mozzadrella!

Great course so far, I’m recommending a couple of colleagues to take it too!

Exercise 2.2

@mozzadrella I’ll note that for someone like me who has been using Github for years professionally, this course has so far been a bit tedious. Looking forward to getting to the classroom- and assignment-specific stuff. Maybe in the future you could incorporate a “how many commits/repos have you worked on” threshold or something to allow folks to skip a bit of this basic stuff?


(Timothy Walter Lutt) #260

I was messing around a bit (didn’t have an ssh-key registered with GitHub on this new device), so I’ve marked the outcome of the assignment in red (and have blurred some sensitive data shown when generating an ssh-key):


(Federico Bassetti) #261

A bit confusing on the instructions, but got the chance to try a few other things out.
Changes fetched and pulled in the local repo.
