git and GitHub in R for the casual user
If you’ve been taught git and GitHub but practice so rarely that you’re discouraged, what should you do to re-start more easily? Let’s imagine you have to, or really want to, use git and GitHub for your next analysis project. Here’s what I would recommend… I assume you already own a GitHub account. If not, refer to happygitwithr guidance. Thanks to the people who shared recommendations on Mastodon, whose names are acknowledged in the rest of the post!
First commit or initial commit?
GitHub-API-V3 / GitHub / GitHub-API / gh / git
When I create a new .git repository, my first commit message tends to be “1st commit”. I’ve been wondering what other people use as initial commit message. Today I used the
gh package to get first commits of all repositories of the ropensci and ropenscilabs organizations.
