Git is a distributed version control system (VCS) which is use to track the code change on every time, It was initially designed and developed by Linus Torvalds in 2005.
In this post, We will install Git on ubuntu 22.04 LTS
Step 1: Update the System
We need to update the current ubuntu repository by following command.
sudo apt-get update
Step 2: Install Git
We are good to execute the given command to install Git on ubuntu 22.04 LTS.
sudo apt-get install git -y
Step 3: Verify the Version
By running the following command and examining the relevant output, you can verify that Git has been installed correctly.
Step 4: Configure Git
You should set up Git so that the commit messages it generates will contain the correct information and help you build your software project after you are happy with your version.
The git config command is used to perform configuration. Particularly, since Git includes these details in every commit, you must provide your name and email address. This information can be added by typing:
git config --global user.name "Type_your_username_here"
git config --global user.email "email@example.com"
Create a folder with the project’s name and move your current directory into that folder, Use the following command for the same.
Now its time to initiate Git for this project directory by executing the given command.
Now we are good to add the git remote repository address by follwing the given command.
git remote add origin https://github.com/username/project.git
Now that git has been installed and configured, we can create and configure a repository. Let’s say we have a straightforward file called helloworld.sh in the project directoty and want to share it with a friend who is also working on the same project.
Add the follwing code in
echo "Hello DevOps Tricks"
Save and exit from the nano text editor and then we need to execute the
git add . to add all the files or you can use git
add type_name_here to add specific file only.
git add helloworld.sh
We will have to commit to adding the files once we have finished adding them, Use the follwing command for the same.
git commit -m "Type your message here"
After that we need to pull the git repository to get new changes from the team memebers, and then we are good to push our new chages in git repository, Use the given command for the same.
To get pull new chages from the repo.
git pull origin master
To get push new changes from the repo.
git push origin master
It would ask you for your github username and password on autopilot. Refresh your browser on GitHub after entering the information. There, the files would be added.
Username for ‘ https://github.com ‘:
Password for ‘ https://firstname.lastname@example.org ‘ :
