Guide: Setting Up git

To set up git, there are certain commands you will run:


Course Setup

To begin to work on assignments and turn in work, you will need to create a git repository for the course.


Computer Setup

cd Desktop
cd stat430

NOTE: Some of you with a newer Windows computer might run into problem accessing your Desktop folder as your Desktop folder is inside the OneDrive folder instead of the root directory. If this is the case, you will receive an error when running cd Desktop. To get around with this, run the following commands instead:

cd OneDrive/Desktop
cd stat430
git clone YOUR-GIT-REPO-URL
cd NETID
git remote add release https://github-dev.cs.illinois.edu/stat430-sp21/_release.git
git config user.name "Your Name"
git config user.email "netid@illinois.edu"

Assignment Setup

Each assignment will provide specific instructions on how to use git to fetch and submit your work.
