GitLab - Pushing a Change

  • Goals
    Learn how to push a change to a remote repository.

Since bare repositories are usually shared on some sort of network server, it is usually difficult to cd into the repo and pull changes. So we need to push our changes into other repositories.

Let’s start by creating a change to be pushed. Edit the README and commit it


This is the Hello World example from the git tutorial.
(Changed in the original and pushed to shared)
git checkout master
git add README
git commit -m "Added shared comment to readme"

Now push the change to the shared repo.

git push shared master

shared is the name of the repository receiving the changes we are pushing. (Remember, we added it as a remote in the previous slide.)

NOTE: We had to explicitly name the branch master that was receiving the push. I think it is possible to set it up automatically.
