GitHub Repo - {Faster, Easier, Smarter Social Coding}

A Repo might sound small or insignificant, however, it can do a great deal in helping every developer's work.

What is all this about???

What is all the Repo, Repo, Repo?

REPO is short-form of REPOSITORY.

A Repository is a kind of a shelter or bank for storing and housing codes, where the owner of the code or permitted visitors can always look-up, edit, or make use of the code.

Surfing the internet, I came across a tool - GitHub which helps maintain projects in the open source community.

GitHub allows developers to manage some kind of cloud/online servers that house their codes in repositories.

How to create a repository:

  • Sign up for a GitHub account https://github.com
  • After log-in, in the upper-right corner of any page, find the "+" drop-down menu and select "New Repository".
  • Give your repository a short, memorable and descriptive name.
  • Optionally, add a description of your repository.
  • Choose the visibility option for you repository, this will determine who has access to whatever is stored in the repository.
  • Optionally, you can choose to initialize the repository with a README file. This file contains summary or guide on how the content of the repository work.
  • Create the repository.
