tag - how to add folder to git repository
How to commit a directory into a git repository? (2)
Git won't commit empty directories. There must be files in the directories first.
I have a stupid problem... however I read the great git tutorial here, I'm unable to create directories.
My folder structure is:
Code - Python - C++ - F# - ...
From within a initialised local repository "Code" I changed into the subfolders "Python", "C++", ... did
git init and now I want the same structure on my versioning server.
% git commit -m "added directories" # On branch master nothing to commit (working directory clean)
I guess I got something completely wrong, did I?
Try to add some files to directories first. You can add some dummy file to directory, and remove that file when you have added the actual content for the directory.
Git does not track empty directories, it tracks files and their contents.
git init mkdir foo touch foo/dummy_empty_file git add foo git add foo/dummy_empty_file git commit -m "adding files"
