README for a newly created project.

There are a couple of things you should do first, before you can use all of Git's power:

  • Add a remote to this project: in the Cloud9 IDE command line, you can execute the following commands git remote add [remote name] [remote url (eg. '')] [Enter]
  • Create new files inside your project
  • Add them to to Git by executing the following command git add [file1, file2, file3, ...] [Enter]
  • Create a commit which can be pushed to the remote you just added git commit -m 'added new files' [Enter]
  • Push the commit the remote git push [remote name] master [Enter]

That's it! If this doesn't work for you, please visit the excellent resources from and the Pro Git book. If you can't find your answers there, feel free to ask us via Twitter (@cloud9ide), mailing list or IRC (#cloud9ide on freenode).

Happy coding!
