Create a branch

Hello. I don’t know what to do, I suspect that the page has changed a bit since the tutorial was added. I don’t see an option to add a branch anywhere …

Hi, I see from the second screenshot that your repository is completely new, with no commit yet. I assume the web UI simply isn’t designed to create branches in that state (I can confirm it still works with an existing branch). I see two options, depending on whether you prefer to stick to the web UI, or are comfortable using the command line:

  1. If you are comfortable using the command line: Follow the “create a new repository on the command line” section, and create the branch you want (or rename the default branch) between the git init and git add commands.
  2. If you want to use the web UI, add a file (via the links in the “quick setup”) section. You should then be able to branch as described in the documentation.
