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