I’m very new to this.
I have software with two versions that I want to preserve. I created a repository with two branches (call them “b1” and “b2”). I couldn’t upload the files via Github’s web interface–it couldn’t handle more than 100 files.
So, I downloaded Github desktop (Mac), cloned the online repository, then selected “b1” branch. Then, using the Mac’s Finder, I opened Documents/Github/myprojectXYZ and copied all the files for one version into it. Then in Github desktop I committed the files to branch b1, and now I can see them on the Github web interface, under brach “b1”. So far so good.
Now I want to do the same for the second version of my software, and am stumped. How do I use Github desktop to upload the files for version 2? I could copy the files into Documents/Github/myprojectXYZ, but it already contains the files for version 1.
