That was a fairly straightforward example, but we can make it more complicated. " to include in what will be committed) scripts/ There’s a lot going on here, and to Git’s credit, this complicated status is relatively easy to follow and explain. First, we have the two changes we already staged—these remain staged, even though other changes to the working copy appear to have superseded them. If we committed right now, our scripts directory would be named js in the repository even though its name is scripts in our working copy.

So let’s tell Git who you are, using the git config command. Unlike most Git commands, which only work inside of a Git project, these can be run from any directory. name) should be set to the value (David Demaree) we’ve provided. The --global option tells Git to set these values as a default for all projects on this computer. name within specific projects by just omitting --global. But we’re setting these globally for now because Git requires them to be set somewhere, and this way you won’t have to do it every time you start a new project.

Commits are the only kind of object you’ll work with on a daily basis. Semantically, each commit represents a complete snapshot of the state of your project at a given moment in time; its unique identifier serves to distinguish that state from the way the files in your project looked at any other moment in time. Git proceeds by addition. Even though files in your project can be created, deleted, or changed, the commits tracking those B asi c s 33 changes are always added. When you remove a file, you’re adding a commit.
