Connect with GIT

On Local Computer

  • Create a folder that you will use for all of the projects and assignments in this course (e.g. C:/N741).

Run RStudio

  • Go to Tools/Global options, click on GIT/SVN - make sure your computer “sees” the GIT executable - on my computer it is C:/Program Files/Git/bin/git.exe
  • Create New Project, Using Version Control, GIT
  • From the Github repository, copy the URL to the clipboard, and make sure you create the project as a subdirectory of the folder you created for this course (e.g. C:/N741).

Make some changes and sync with Github

  • Open the README.md file
  • Make some changes - add a sentence or two
  • Notice the changes in the GIT TAB top right
  • We will follow 3 steps:
    • Add/Stage
    • Commit
    • PUSH
  • Try using the RStudio GIT TAB
  • and we’ll run again using the Terminal Window (or the GIT application)
