How to Create a repository on GitHub

  1. Sign in to GitHub: If you don’t have a GitHub account, you’ll need to sign up first. If you do have an account, sign in to your GitHub account.
  2. Navigate to Your Profile: Once signed in, click on your profile icon at the top right corner of the screen. From the dropdown menu, select “Your repositories.”
  3. Create a New Repository: On the “Your repositories” page, you’ll see an option to “New.” Click on it.
  4. Fill out Repository Information: You’ll be taken to a page where you can fill out information about your new repository:
    • Repository Name: Choose a name for your repository.
    • Description (Optional): Add a brief description of your repository.
    • Visibility: Choose whether your repository will be public (visible to everyone) or private (accessible only to selected collaborators).
    • Initialize this repository with a README: Check this option if you want to initialize your repository with a README file. This file typically provides an overview of your project.
  5. Choose Options (Optional): Below the description, you’ll see options to add a .gitignore file (which specifies intentionally untracked files to ignore) and to choose a license for your repository. These are optional but recommended.
  6. Create Repository: Once you’ve filled out the necessary information, click on the “Create repository” button.
  7. Congratulations! Your repository has been created. You’ll be redirected to the repository’s main page where you can find the URL to clone your repository, make changes, and manage your project.

That’s it! You’ve successfully created a repository on GitHub. You can now start adding files, making commits, and collaborating with others on your project.
