learn how to use the command line emulator ( Cmder )


version control

Version control, also known as source control, is the practice of tracking and managing changes to software code. Version control systems are software tools that help software teams manage changes to source code over time. it also keeps track of every modification to the code in a special kind of database. If a mistake is made, developers can turn back the clock and compare earlier versions of the code to help fix the mistake while minimizing disruption to all team members.

during the fab academy program we will push our website as version control each week we should document our work and upload what we learned and accomplish, there is many software’s that can enable us to do that such as Mercurial bitbucket git github gitlab Dropbox owncloud

but here we will be focusing on git and gitlab and here how you can install it and sett it up for you.


Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. and you can work with git in the cloud by using github that allow you do git in the cloud to collaborate or gitlab which is an open version that allow you do git in the cloud


to know more about git aloways refer back to the book ,now you need to work with git in your local computer and connect it to fab cloud to do that you need to integrated with the your terminal, and since we are using cmder emulator, you can use git bash

Git in Command Line

There are a lot of different ways to use Git. There are the original command-line tools, and there are many graphical user interfaces of varying capabilities. but here, we will be using Git on the command line. and we will use cmder since the operation system i am using is windows. cmder logo

the reason we use the command line is because its the only place you can run all Git commands — most of the GUIs implement only a partial subset of Git functionality for simplicity. If you know how to run the command-line version, you can probably also figure out how to run the GUI version, while the opposite is not necessarily true.

Download git bash

Git Bash is a command line through which users can use Git features. It emulates a bash environment on Windows and lets the user use most of the standard Unix commands. you can download it from here git bash logo

install git bash

once the download is done now start the installation process.


you can use git pash terminal to work with git, but here we will integrated with cmder for better use of command lines tool

Git bash + Cmder

so at this stage i spose that you already downloadded cmder and if not got to

sssh 2

and then past the ssh key that you copied before and click add key, it should automatically detect the title as you write it before


create new project on git lab

now once you have created your key you can create new project from git lab, in git lab you can either start with new blank project or start with a template, here we are going to start blank project


start by writing project name and description for the project, you can initialize the repository with read me file by click the blank box


cloning repo

after you hit create project this page will show up, you can get started by cloning the repository or start adding files to it with one of the following options


push your first commit

1-Add the new files you added to git

git add index.html to upload file by file git add . to upload all the files at once

2-To download the last copy from the repository

git pull (for downloading the last copy of the repository)

git merge (to have a working copy)

4-Now name your update, so you know what you changed with this push.
