What is a repository?
A repository is usually used to organize a single project. Repositories can contain folders and files, README, images, videos, spreadsheets, and anything your project needs.
Creating a repository (GitHub)
For ease, I made a graphic, on how to create a Repo from scratch.
General elements a repo should contain:
(Some are already present)
▪️ LICENSE ▪️ Contributing guidelines ▪️ Forks ▪️ Releases ▪️ Issues & Pull Requests
After creating a new repo, it will look something like this.👇
An open-source license defines rules. for how a repo is modified, shared, and used.
▶️ Contributing guidelines
It's a file present in the repo with a short guide to how they can help with your project and contribute to it.
Shows the number of people who have made a copy of a repository.
▶️ Releases & Packages
Releases are deployable software iterations you can package and make available for a wider audience to download and use.
Issues let you track your work on GitHub, also, we can raise if we find any bug or any improvement needed in that project.
▶️ Pull Requests
Requesting for changes committed to an external repository.
