The basics: Using Git for version control (Part 2: Linking your project to GitHub)

  1. Navigate to github.com and login, then on the left hand side under Repositories click the green “New” button. This will take you to the creation screen. Fill out the basic details for name, description, and privacy for your project. Note, if you would like the public to be able to view your project be sure to select public visibility, otherwise you can choose private to keep a project within your authorized team.
  2. For projects with Unity, you will want to check the box for “Add .gitignore” — the reason is because Unity adds many extra files that do not need to be committed when you are working in a team, namely library files and temp files. Fortunately this is an easy step! Simply type Unity into the box to apply the template for unity projects and you are ready to create your repository. This will create your initial commit with just a .gitignore file.
