Handling Version Control on this Project

Just a quick overview/cheatsheet on how we should handle the version control on this project.

  • Fork the main repository to your own profile
  • Clone the repository to your machine git clone<your username>/DebtFreeLiving.git
  • Set the upstream to the main repository git remote add upstream
  • Check that the upstream has been set git remote -v. More info here.

You should now be set. You can make all the changes/additions you need to on your local copy. You can also update your local copy at anytime (if you see new commits come through on the main repo in Slack) by fetching the upstream (see below).

Committing Changes

When you're ready to commit changes, make sure to fetch the upstream first.

  • Fetch the upstream git fetch upstream.
  • Make sure you are on your own master branch git checkout master.
  • Merge the upstream with your master branch git merge upstream/master. This makes sure your copy is up to date on the latest commit in the main repo. If you have conflicts, you need to resolve them before pushing your own commits (it will tell you if you have conflicts when you do the merge command). If you need help resolving conflicts just let me know.
  • Your local changes should still be there (check by git status).
  • Add git add <filename> or to add all git add ., commit git commit -m"your comment", and push git push

You should now be able to check your own repo on and see your commits there.

Merging to the Main Repository

After you have made all the changes/additions you want on a page or feature, submit them to be merged to the main repo.

  • Go to your forked repo on (make sure it's the one under your own profile)
  • Click the button "New Pull Request"
  • If it says it can't be merged immediately, that's to be expected
  • Continue and submit the pull request

Once the pull request is complete, I'll see it and merge it into the main repo master branch.
