7.3 Setting up a remote repository on Github

First thing we do is navigate to Github and make sure youre logged in.

Click green “New repository” button. Or, if you are on your own profile page, click on “Repositories,” then click the green “New” button.

How to fill this in:

  • Repository name: myrepo (or whatever you wish, we’ll delete this soon anyway).
  • Description: “testing my setup” (or whatever, but some text is good for the README).
  • Public.
  • YES Initialize this repository with a README.
  • For everything else, just accept the default.

Click big green button “Create repository.”

Copy the HTTPS clone URL to your clipboard via the green “Clone or Download” button.
