I’m new to using GIT and have a few questions you may answer to direct me to where I can find answers.
I have already created a GIT repository on my hard drive based on the projects in my Visual Studio ‘repos’ directory structure. I have a number of files listed in the Unstaged Changes window and a much larger group listed in the Staged Changes (Will Commit) window. One of the things I noticed is that GIT seems to have put all files in the repositories, generated executables as well as source code. Should the binaries and executables be in the repository? I would think that version control only needs to be used for the sources.
Also, I have a copy of progit.pdf, which covers the command line operation of GIT, but is there a user manual specific to the Git Gui executable?
Also, is there a way to integrate the GIT repository commands (state, commit, pull, etc.) into the Visual Studio 2019 IDE so I can use one tool for both development and version control?
Finally, how do I put a local GIT repository onto GitHub?
Appreciate any input and guidance you can give me.
