Hi, I am a completely new user, this is one of my first attempts to create a git repo and this is actually my first post in the forum; please excuse me if I use any wrong terminology or this is the wrong place to ask or my question has been answered elsewhere, unfortunately I couldn’t find a relevant answer.
The problem is that I have a local copy of a git repo that I am trying to clone in my current github account including any history commits performed in the original repo.
I am a final year student that worked for a company during my industrial placement year (as part of my studies) where I developed a web-app.
During the development I used the company’s internal version control system which is actually the github platform but used only internally in the company.
When I completed my placement I kept a copy of the whole code I developed including the git related files and folders (such as .git and .gitignore)
During my current graduating year I wish to use my github account to demonstrate the work I performed there and for this I am trying to clone the code folders/files as a repository in my github account. Also, I understand that the commits that I did during the development are recorded in the .git folder and I wonder whether there is any way these commits can be visible in the cloned repo.
I hope this question makes sense but please feel free to ask me for any additional information if needed.
Many thanks for any response.
