Connect a folder to an existing repository
Published: November 17, 2019Updated: November 29, 2022
Often when I create a new repository through the GitHub website I initiate it with a Readme and License. When I don't clone this repo directly, but rather want to connect a folder to it, these commands come in handy.
git init git remote add origin https://github.com/url.git git pull origin main --allow-unrelated-histories //fix merge conflicts if they exist and commit git push --set-upstream origin main
