Step 1: Check your branch
Step 1a: If you need to create a branch
git branch dev
Step 1b: If you need to delete a branch
git branch -d dev
Others to keep in mind
git branch -D dev git branch -m dev2 git branch -a
Step 2: Checking your remote
NB: add -v for verbose
Step 3: Staging your changes
git add .
Step 3a: Un-staging your changes
Step 4: Committing your changes
git commit -m "My first commit"
Step 5: Push your changes
git push origin main
The -u flat allows you to set the default remote branch for your current local branch. By default, every pull command sets the master as your default remote branch.
