See where Git stores the files it uses to track changes in a repository.
- [Instructor] In this movie, … we're going to talk about where Git stores the files … that it uses to do its work. … In the previous movie, we created our first Git project, … and we initialized that project, … and we saw that it created … a .git directory inside that folder. … Now, it's invisible, cause it's a dot file, … but it is there. … And if we take a look inside ls space dash la, … and then dot git. … You'll see that there's a number of other directories … and files inside of it. … These are the files that Git uses to do all of its tracking. … You can see it would use branches to keep track … of different branches. … Hooks, info, objects, refs, … those are all parts of what Git uses. … Now, you're not going to need to deal with any of those … except for maybe the config file. … If we take a look at that config file at git slash config, … you can see that it contains some configuration information. … Now, we configured some user level configuration before, … but we can also configure our project. …
