If you do not have any generated code to upload to the GitHub repository, you will need to create the code on your device first. So do you have any generated code? No!. Okay then let's start to create code on your device. First create a new folder (Git-Repo) on your laptop or desktop then open it. Now let's create a new HTML file (index.html) into created folder (Git-Repo). Now open HTML file (index.html) and write some HTML code into HTML file (index.html) and then save HTML file.

No. Don't worry friends, Now I'm going to explain the GitHub repository information created here. I'm going to upload the code to the GitHub repository using Git Bash, So you need to read push an existing project section from created GitHub repository. You will get git setup information after created new GitHub repository. Use “…or push an existing repository from the command line” information to upload your git project on GitHub.


5. Upload Code To GitHub Repository.

Next right click and click on git bash here to open git bash pop-up. Now follow next steps carefully. I hope you did create a file that you want to upload on GitHub public or private repository. Now you need to run git init command using git bash to start using git version control in your code project.

Did you run git init command? Yes!. Can you see a (.git) folder into Git-Repo folder? Yes. Okay now you need to run git add command. But why? Actually git add command will add all folder and files that are stored under (Git-Repo) folder.

git commit -m "Upload Code To Github Repository Using Git Bash"


Did you create the GitHub public repository? Yes. Do you have public repository information that you created? Yes. Good. Now are you ready to push your code to GitHub repository? Yes. Now you need to run git remote origin command. Please don't forget to use your created GitHub repository information to upload code to GitHub repository using git bash.


git remote add origin https://github.com/username/repository-name.git


Finally you need to push your exiting code to GitHub repository using git push command. Wait a minute, Do you know your git branch name? No. OK, you'll see the name of a branch in the Git Bash terminal. Branch name can be master, main.  So use your git branch that you want to push on GitHub repository using git bash.
