Version Control with GitHub

Version control with GitHub, or any version control system (VCS) for that matter, offers several significant benefits for individuals and teams involved in software development and other collaborative projects. For this tortorial I will use GitHub.

Setting up a GitHub repository.

Setting up a GitHub repository is a straightforward process. Here are step-by-step instructions on how to create a new GitHub repository:

Your GitHub repository is now set up and ready for use. You can add code, documentation, and other project files to it, and you can also invite collaborators to work with you on the repository by using the "Settings" > "Manage access" tab. Make sure to follow best practices for managing and organizing your code within the repository for a smooth development experience.

Cloning the repository to your local machine.

Cloning a GitHub repository to your local machine using Visual Studio Code (VS Code) is a common and straightforward process. Here are the steps to clone a repository:

You have now successfully cloned the GitHub repository to your local machine using Visual Studio Code. You can start working with the code, making changes, and using VS Code's integrated Git features to manage your repository.

Remember that you'll need to have Git installed on your local machine and configured with your GitHub credentials to clone private repositories. If you haven't already configured Git, you can do so by following GitHub's guide on Setting up Git.

Committing and pushing the FastAPI application to GitHub directly from VSCode.

Committing and pushing a FastAPI application to GitHub from Visual Studio Code (VS Code) involves using Git, which is integrated into VS Code. Here are the steps to commit and push your FastAPI application to GitHub:

Committing and Pushing Changes:

Your FastAPI application changes are now committed and pushed to your GitHub repository from Visual Studio Code. You can verify your changes by visiting your GitHub repository on the GitHub website.

Remember to commit and push your changes regularly to keep your GitHub repository up to date with your local development work.
