  • First step for git configuration is to install git in you operating system. For that you can use the link
  • After installation you have to configure the user using the command (git config --global "John" ). This command will configure the name of user and also you can configure the email of user using command - git config --global "[email protected]"
  • After configuring the user name and mail you can create a git repository using the command - git init
  • Next step is to create a file in repository. In this example I have create a file WhatIsGIT.SQL.
  • git add WhatIsGIT.SQL command will add the file to the repository.
  • git status will displays the state of the working directory and the staging area.
  • git commit command will commit the file to repository, you can give a message during the commit like "-m "Any comment" "
  • git log command will give the details of changes in repository. You can revert the changes using the checkout command.
  • Common Git Commands are git init, git add, git commit, git status, git config, git branch, git checkout, git merge.
  • Please refer the program section for more clarity.
