Adding locally hosted code to GitHub

If your code is stored locally on your computer, you can import the code to GitHub using GitHub CLI or Git commands.

About adding existing source code to GitHub

If you have source code stored locally on your computer, you can add the code to GitHub by typing commands in a terminal. You can do this by typing Git commands directly, or by using GitHub CLI.

GitHub CLI is an open source tool for using GitHub from your computer's command line. GitHub CLI can simplify the process of adding an existing project to GitHub using the command line. To learn more about GitHub CLI, see "GitHub CLI 정보."

Tip: If you're most comfortable with a point-and-click user interface, try adding your project with GitHub Desktop. For more information, see "로컬 컴퓨터에서 GitHub Desktop으로 리포지토리 추가" in the GitHub Desktop Help.

Adding a local repository to GitHub with GitHub CLI

  1. In the command line, navigate to the root directory of your project.

  2. Initialize the local directory as a Git repository.

    git init -b main
  3. Stage and commit all the files in your project.

    git add . && git commit -m "initial commit"
  4. To create a repository for your project on GitHub, use the gh repo create subcommand. When prompted, select Push an existing local repository to GitHub and enter the desired name for your repository. If you want your project to belong to an organization instead of your user account, specify the organization name and project name with organization-name/project-name.

  5. Follow the interactive prompts. To add the remote and push the repository, confirm yes when asked to add the remote and push the commits to the current branch.

  6. Alternatively, to skip all the prompts, supply the path to the repository with the --source flag and pass a visibility flag (--public, --private, or --internal). For example, gh repo create --source=. --public. Specify a remote with the --remote flag. To push your commits, pass the --push flag. For more information about possible arguments, see the GitHub CLI manual.

Adding a local repository to GitHub using Git

  1. Create a new repository on GitHub.com. To avoid errors, do not initialize the new repository with README, license, or gitignore files. You can add these files after your project has been pushed to GitHub. Create New Repository drop-down

  2. Terminal(터미널)Terminal(터미널)Git Bash를 엽니다.

  3. Change the current working directory to your local project.

  4. Use the init command to initialize the local directory as a Git repository. By default, the initial branch is called main.

    If you’re using Git 2.28.0 or a later version, you can set the name of the default branch using -b.

    $ git init -b main

    If you’re using Git 2.27.1 or an earlier version, you can set the name of the default branch using && git symbolic-ref HEAD refs/heads/main.

    $ git init && git symbolic-ref HEAD refs/heads/main
  5. Add the files in your new local repository. This stages them for the first commit.

    $ git add .
    # Adds the files in the local repository and stages them for commit. 파일의 스테이징을 해제하려면 ‘git reset HEAD YOUR-FILE’을 사용합니다.
  6. Commit the files that you've staged in your local repository.

    $ git commit -m "First commit"
    # Commits the tracked changes and prepares them to be pushed to a remote repository. 이 커밋을 제거하고 파일을 수정하려면 ‘git reset --soft HEAD~1’을 사용하여 파일을 다시 커밋하고 추가합니다.
  7. At the top of your repository on GitHub.com's Quick Setup page, click to copy the remote repository URL. Copy remote repository URL field

  8. In Terminal, add the URL for the remote repository where your local repository will be pushed.

    $ git remote add origin <REMOTE_URL>
    # Sets the new remote
    $ git remote -v
    # Verifies the new remote URL
  9. Push the changes in your local repository to GitHub.com.

    $ git push -u origin main
    # Pushes the changes in your local repository up to the remote repository you specified as the origin

    If you’re using Git 2.27.1 or an earlier version, you can set the name of the default branch using && git symbolic-ref HEAD refs/heads/main.

    $ git init && git symbolic-ref HEAD refs/heads/main

  8. In the Command prompt, add the URL for the remote repository where your local repository will be pushed.

    $ git remote add origin <REMOTE_URL>
    # Sets the new remote
    $ git remote -v
    # Verifies the new remote URL
