Beginner’s guide to GitHub: Uploading files and folders to GitHub


The latest guide in the GitHub for Beginners series teaches how to upload files and folders to a GitHub repository. There are several ways to upload content, including directly through the site or using the terminal. When uploading through the website, users must select the option to upload files from the repository screen. After selecting and uploading the files, users must enter a commit message to provide a description of the changes. For larger files, directories, or projects, users can upload via terminal with a newly initialized repository. Users must navigate to the project folder, initialize it as a repository using 'git init,' add the necessary files, make a commit, then connect the local repository to the GitHub one before pushing the files. The tutorial emphasizes the difference between staging and committing changes, and highlights the community support available for those learning how to use GitHub effectively.
