CS 181 Homeworks
Seed repository for homeworks in cs181, s17
Welcome to CS181! This repository will house your homework assignments.
If you are reading this, the name of the repository should be cs181-s17-homeworks-YourGithubID. If that's what you see, you should already be logged into your Github account and have your own private repository (this one) for your homeworks. You're good to read on.
If you don't see your Github ID at the end of the repository name, you need to find the link on Canvas to create your own private repository.
If you don't know what any of this means, contact Nia, who administers the Github Classroom. These instructions only apply to your private repo.
How this repository works
This repository is a copy of a "seed" repository maintained by the TFs. Right now there should be six folders in this repository. Throughout this semester, your TFs will add homework assignments to the seed repository, and you will be responsible for copying them into your repository (using "fetch" and "merge", in git-speak). Assuming you've already cloned your repository locally, you can get the new files by:
git remote add seed_repo https://github.com/harvard-ml-courses/cs181-s17-homeworks.git # only needs to be done once git fetch seed_repo git merge seed_repo/master -m "Fetched new assignment"
These commands (1) tell your local git repository where the seed repo is (and calls it "seed_repo"), (2) gets that repo from github.com, and (3) merges it with your local files. A final, fourth, step would be to push to your remote repository so it shows up on the web and your TFs can see it.
For each assignment you will be given a number of files. When you complete the assignments you should always push to this repository, and we will tell you which files need to be submitted on Canvas as well.
If you are having any trouble, please reach out to a TF. We're here to help!
