How to upload an entire folder?

I clicked on my repo in a browser, then I clicked on Upload Files. I would like to upload an entire folder so that GitHub would preserve the hierarchy of the files and folders in my folder, but I am not able to select folders to be uploaded. How would I upload an entire folder of an XCode project?

Re: How to upload an entire folder?

There isn't a way to upload an entire folder through the web UI. The easiest way to do that would be to:


  1. Clone the repository locally
  2. Make the changes to the local version
  3. Commit the changes locally
  4. Push the changes back up to the GitHub repository
