In this blog post, I will show you how to create a git repository on a Linux or Windows machine.

About Git

Git is the most popular code versioning control tool in the world, and in this series of articles, I will show you how to use it.

Create Repository

To create a repository called Repo01, I will start with creating a folder with the same name.

mkdir c:\Repo01

Initializing a New Repository

The first command that I will use will create my repository.

I will run from inside the c:\Repo01 folder

git init

The command will create a hidden folder called .git with the following files.

To check the status of the repository, I will run the following command.

git status

In the next article, I will show you how to add files and commit them to the repository.

Success! You're on the list.
