Pushing changes to GitHub from GitHub Desktop

As you commit changes to your project locally, you can push those changes to GitHub from GitHub Desktop so that others may access them from the remote repository.

About pushing changes to GitHub

When you push changes, you send the committed changes in your local repository to the remote repository on GitHub. If you change your project locally and want other people to have access to the changes, you must push the changes to GitHub.

Before pushing changes, you should update your local branch to include any commits that have been added to the remote repository. If someone has made commits on the remote that are not on your local branch, GitHub Desktop will prompt you to fetch the new commits before pushing your changes to avoid merge conflicts. For more information, see "Syncing your branch in GitHub Desktop."

Los administradores de un repositorio pueden activar las protecciones en una rama. Si estás trabajando en una rama que está protegida, no podrás eliminar ni hacer un empuje forzado a la rama. Los administradores de repositorio pueden habilitar otras configuraciones de la rama protegida para requerir ciertos flujos de trabajo antes de que la rama se pueda fusionar. Para obtener más información, vea «Acerca de las ramas protegidas».

Repository administrators can also enable rulesets for a branch, which will prevent a push from completing if a ruleset has not been followed. For example, a ruleset may require a specific branch naming convention, or an issue number at the start of a commit message. GitHub Desktop will warn about rulesets to help prevent your branch from getting into a state where you would be unable to push your changes. For more information, see "Acerca de los conjuntos de reglas."

Pushing changes to GitHub

Note: GitHub Desktop will reject a push if it exceeds certain limits.

  • A push contains a large file over 100 MiB in size.
  • A push is over 2 GiB in total size.

If you configure Almacenamiento de archivos de gran tamaño de Git to track your large files, you can push large files that would normally be rejected. For more information, see "About Git Large File Storage and GitHub Desktop."
