the question i am working on:  Version-Control with Atom: how to set & configure the interaction of Atom and Github

i am pretty new to Atom and github - so i have a question: how to get up and configured the ATOM-editor so that it works with the Github-Account regarding the atom-manual on the following page i have several questions: https://flight-manual.atom.io/using-atom/sections/version-control-in-atom/

i think that for a beginner in ATOM - it is the question how to connect to the Github-Account. The below mentioned Atom-Manual notes how to work with the Git Account.  But the question of the day is : how to get to the

If you're looking to use the Git features in Atom that are shown in the Flight Manual at the link you included, you first have to get Git working on your machine. In order to do that, you can follow the instructions in the GitHub help documents. Once Git is working on your machine and you've created a repository, then you can clone that repository locally. When that is all done, then you can open that local repository in Atom and use those features that you linked to in the Flight Manual. Atom reads the Git configuration that was created in each of the above steps and doesn't need any additional setup to work.

 

I hope that helps!
