Git branch develop, commited changes do not show up on github
I have to admit that I am an absolute newbie for working with github. However after reading several forums, the online help and trying back and forth I still have not found a solution to my problem and I am really clueless.
I have released a couple of weeks ago my first basic module for MM on github.
I wanted to further develop the features of the module, but wanted to do it in a separate branch develop.
I create this branch via
git checkout. I checked in my modifications to the develop branch with
git commit -a.
A git check status shows:
On branch develop Untracked files: (use "git add ..." to include in what will be committed) backup/ nothing added to commit but untracked files present (use "git add" to track)
I did not yet exclude the backup directory in gitignore.
If i call
git logI can see:
commit ce4fca6491a4cd8facb44482ce2f17cbd335e7a4 Author: xxx Date: Wed Feb 22 20:42:56 2017 +0100 modified: CHANGELOG.md modified: MMM-RadioDe.js modified: README.md commit db495c121e2dd8f38b1e2f67fd0101f918d11190 Author: xxx Date: Tue Feb 21 19:07:07 2017 +0100 - requiresVersion: "2.1.0", - option to change playing radio station via notification - Added documentation for daily operation in [README.md](README.md# Daily operation) - Added check for all modules started, before starting radio player - Known problems: One user reported that player does not start, potentially fixed by starting player only once all modules started
My problem: I cannot see these changes online in the web interface of github, trying to see my changes in github it claims no differences between master and develop branch (identical).
I strongly hope that this is an absolute beginners error, nevertheless I am running out of ideas. Could you help me ?
@Steff Seems like you need to push your changes. They are local only unless you use
git pushto send them to the github server.
@Jopyth Thanks so much, you saved my day, I really had forgotten git push, stupid me. Thanks again !!
I can recomend you 3 things:
Check the next documentation
- http://rogerdudler.github.io/git-guide/ (simple)
- https://backlogtool.com/git-guide/en/stepup/stepup1_1.html (some details about branches)
Second one, use this interactive tutorial
The last, you can work better using a zsh+oh-my-zsh. This enable to see where branch you are and status repository into the shell prompt.
