git azure questions


Hello,

I'm a bit of a git newb. I've done it before but years ago and then only tutorials.

Now my work wants me to upload old code to their Azure account.

I use a fedora virtual box on my work machine. I installed git and added the ssh public key to Azure.

I cloned our current repositories but I'm a bit confused.

I see Azure has it's own cli client. AZ

Do I need that? Can I just use the built in git commands or no?

Is there a good quick tutorial to allow me to push a local directory up?

appreciate all advise,

Thanks

You can just use the git command line. A client is a client. There are numerous ones. People become familiar with them. Ultimately all clients use the git commands which you would use in the command line.

As far as learning more details about how to do things in git, I would just suggest general web searches with terms like "git push", "git merge branch", and etc.

Absolutely feel free to try some of the clients. I personally have yet to be impressed and continue to use the command line.

If you learn the basic, standard way: git using the command line. You can sit at ANYONE's terminal and perform git commands quickly. Even if they use some client, you don't have to know that client, or learn it, you can just open a command line and take care of it.

Thanks for the replies.

I intend to use the command line. I'll try and relearn git.

I was able to get them uploaded by a possibly very dangerous way.

I had cloned the entire directory.

so I when into the cloned directory which has separate subdirectories then did a

git add uploaddir
git push origin branch
