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
git pull origin main --allow-unrelated-histories

//fix merge conflicts if they exist and commit

git push --set-upstream origin main
