Create a remote repository

Length: 10 minutes


To create a repository on GitHub, follow these instructions from the GitHub documentation:

If you’ve already created a local repository and plan to add the remote repository to it, don’t initialize the repository with a README. If you’re planning on cloning this repository locally then you can go ahead and add the README.


Create a remote repository on GitHub. Don’t initialize the repository with a README, since your local project folder already has a README. You’ll connnect the remote repository to your local project folder in the next lesson.
