I’ve been working a lot with git lately and one of the problems I had was to create a central git repository that two people could push and pull to. It’s a simple problem, and it’s got a simple solution. Run this in a terminal:
mkdir code; # Make an initial working directory
Now add some files, and run “git add” on them. Then commit.
echo "Hello git!" > testfile;
git add testfile;
git commit -am 'first commit';
The next thing you want to do is creating the “central” repository. You do this by cloning your current working directory with the “–bare” flag:
git clone --bare code central;
The working directory does not yet know of this central directory called “central”. To fix this, one could either go through the config for the folder or just make a clone of the central directory. We will do the latter, and therefore we will not need the current “code” directory.
rm -Rf code;
git clone central code; # make new coding dir
All done! You can now edit files in “code” and run “git push” or “git pull” as you like. Good luck!
