What happened is, being unfamiliar with the Github desktop app, i somehow uploaded all my folders on the the app. (although they were not deployed in “repository” form, and the desktop app somehow new every single folder i had on my computer).
I panicked thinking all my personal files would be on some external app, then went into the terminal and typed a command that deleted everything on my computer. I mean everything. There are even 3 question marks on my dock meaning i probably deleted files of different apps i had installed previously.
I think i will stick with the terminal.
I still don’t understand why the word “repository” was invented, and i still don’t understand its definition.
In terms of creating my first repository, i’m not sure if i have to create a github.io website by default, or if for every single line of code or project i want to upload i need a new github.io “link”.
here is a tribute page i made in its Chrome Browser version html link:
This is the codepen link:
I’ve also created a repository called: TributePage.github.io
Now depending on how i import my project, if for instance someone uses firefox as a browser, that means my Chrome .html link won’t work.
Therefore, i have to use the terminal, now, does that mean i should always have a file on my computer with that project?
Or since i use the terminal, the workflow of the importation makes it so, that the project is “duplicated” and therefore, stays forever on git, regardless if i have my tribute page on my drive or not?
