Join Michael Jenkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Exercise files, part of Learning GitHub Actions (2019).
- [Instructor] To help you get the most out of this course, exercise files are available for you to use. You can refer to these files to follow along or to use as a starting point for working with GitHub actions. After downloading the exercise file archive and unzipping it you'll have a directory structure similar to this. Let's use chapter one, lesson one as an example. To work with the exercise files in GitHub, you'll need to create a repo, and connect it to this directory. I've already created a repo but I wanted to show you the commands you need to run locally. First, we'll need to initialize this local directory with the command git init then we'll add all of the files to a new commit. Before we can push the code, we need to add the remote repository. Of course, your repo will be specific to your GitHub account but I'll just type the commands for my repository here. Now I can push to the remote repo. Now let's see how this looks in GitHub. I'm looking at my new repository and I'll refresh the screen to see the files that we just pushed. OK, now the exercise files are running in GitHub, from here you'll be able to add actions to create workflows.
