Open Source Project: For the beginners…

  • Go to the GitHub website, look in the upper right corner, and click the + sign and then click “New repository.”
  • Name the repository, and add a quick description.
  • Decide whether you want this to be a public or a private repository
  • Click “Initialize this repository with a README” if you want to include the README file. (I definitely recommend doing this! It’s the first thing people are going to look at when they check out your repository. It’s also a great place to put information that you need to have in order to understand or run the project.)
  • First, go to your repository.
  • Click the name of the file to bring up that file (for example, click “README.md” to go to the readme file).
  • Click the pencil icon in the upper right corner of the file and make some changes.
  • Write a short message in the box that describes the changes you made (and an extended description if you want).
  • Click the “Commit changes” button.
(Not the outcome I wanted)
