On debian/ubuntu based system it rather simple to install git:
apt-get install git
CLI way to generate a key for gitlab. I use a separate keys for each host/server. It makes it easier to delete a key after projects are done. In this example a “fabacademy-gitlab” key pair is created:
So first go your .ssh directory, located in HOME:
cd ~/.ssh ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C "firstname.lastname@example.org"
Runnig the command generates output like this:
Generating public/private rsa key pair. Enter file in which to save the key (/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa): /home/user/.ssh/fabacademy-gitlab Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): Enter same passphrase again: Your identification has been saved in /home/user/.ssh/fabacademy-gitlab. Your public key has been saved in /home/user/.ssh/fabacademy-gitlab.pub. The key fingerprint is: SHA256:******************************************* email@example.com The key's randomart image is: +---[RSA 4096]----+ |* O^ OO . o | | + X+@ o O | |. %o S .| | . O | | = * S o | | O . * | | . . . | | F o | | ...| +----[SHA256]-----+
edit you ssh config file. It’s located mostly in ~/.ssh/config
At the end of the file insert lines like these:
Host gitlab Hostname gitlab.fabcloud.org User git Identityfile ~/.ssh/fabacademy-gitlab IdentitiesOnly yes
Because this config you can now change the user & hostname parts of the git commands. Change “firstname.lastname@example.org” for “gitlab”
Git global setup
git config --global user.name "your name" git config --global user.email "email@example.com"
Create a new repository
git clone gitlab:academany/fabacademy/2018/labs/fablabamsterdam/students/your-name.git cd your-name touch README.md git add README.md git commit -m "add README" git push -u origin master
cd existing_folder git init git remote add origin gitlab:academany/fabacademy/2018/labs/fablabamsterdam/students/your-name.git git add . git commit -m "Initial commit" git push -u origin master
Existing Git repository
cd existing_repo git remote rename origin old-origin git remote add origin gitlab:academany/fabacademy/2018/labs/fablabamsterdam/students/your-name.git git push -u origin --all git push -u origin --tags
Adding and commiting changes to gitlab
So from now on you work with the local files. Once you are satisfied with the changes and additions to the site, it’s time to update the repository on gitlab. First you go to the root directory of the project.
cd ~/documentation-theme-jekyll git pull (for getting the last commits from gitlab, actually it's a command that you have to run before you start editing) git add . (for all files you haven't added to the repository) git commit . (now you can write a comment about the changes or additions) git push (pushes the changes or additions to gitlab)
