Here’s my screenshot
I used to use git pull.
Is it similar as git fetch?
No screenshot to post; sorry: In the README.md I see for the module there’s nothing about posting a screenshot so I don’t have one.
- I wasn’t sure what was meant by “upload your first week’s assignments”. I’m guessing this means assignments for a course for which I might use GitHub.
- I was puzzled by how “git fetch” didn’t seem to be updating the local files. After some Googling it appears that it updates only the local repository, and to get those changes into the working copy one also has to “git merge”?
- I don’t feel like I understand at all the part of the video with the figure showing “trees” and “blobs”. Maybe it will become clearer later. Up to that point I was finding the videos admirably clear and helpful!
I found it frustratingly difficult to “upload my first week’s work” via GitHub.com, since the UI doesn’t have an “Upload Files” link until it has at least one file in the repository. Since “individual-work” was a new, empty repository, there was no obvious way to perform the upload!
Therefore, I just pushed the “demo” repository from the command line up to the remote individual-work repository, then back in command line, moved to the local individual-work repository and fetched the contents.
Note that once the push is complete and the readme file is uploaded, the UI changes and the “Upload Files” link magically appears.
