I tried to clone a repository to Github to easierly ask a question about the project.
So, in Github Desktop, I opened the project, and then selected File, Clone Repository.
I gave my pseudo and the name of the project for the repository, I swear it did not exist.
Well, this was a problem, I was said Github can only clone to an existing repository.
I connected to github.com on the browser, and created the repository. In the list, it shows “0 bytes”. Well, I shall not nitpick for the s.
I came back to Github Desktop, and asked again to clone the repository to github.com
Well, impossible : the repository contains files, Github can only clone to an empty repository.
So, it was impossible to clone before creating the repository, and it was impossible to clone after doing so.
Well, you mean I must clone during the repository creation on the website ?
Can somebody explain with a little more details how to do that ?
You know what, I tried clicking on the + in the upper right corner of the web page, import repository, and was answered “We can’t import from file:///D:/Projets%20Visual%20Studio/Winform/Tension/.git. Please check the URL and try again”
Well, I checked the URL (Firefox displayed the project with it) and tried again, but it did not work better.
