Git Hub Question(s)

Now that I finally got the command line working for me, Ive been using that exclusively. I didn’t know about Git Extensions! Thats pretty cool that it shows you the commands, that’s something that I really wish the source control feature in VS Code would offer because its super convenient to use but I feel like im not learning anything by using it. :face_with_monocle:

In fact, the source control feature in VS Code confuses me a bit sometimes. I may have to search some videos on how to use it :thinking:

man, the graph will not update when pushing commits up? Thats disappointing :roll_eyes:

The graph should update whenever you push to GitHub.

Yeah I don’t know why, but that has not been the case for me. You can see from the first screenshot I just updated by push about 36 mins ago but in the second screenshot of the graph, it says I have no activity for today.

Depending upon your settings, not all contributions will show up on the graph if you are pushing to private repositories.

And, again, I wouldn’t make a big deal out of it. Personally, I think people get too attached to the pretty green squares and ascribe too much personal worth to their ability to make green boxes on a chart.

They are public repos.

That makes sense. it is kinda cool tho :man_shrugging:

the squares are when you made commits probably, click on a square to see what it rapresent

No the squares are just days. They populate automatically once the day is over and a new day starts whether you interact with GH or not.

So an empty square with no green shows no activity.

I’m not sure if this is obsession or art:

Yeah but I don’t understand because Its not showing but I just made a push, that’s the problem im facing.

Its not showing push activity, but inside my actual repository, It shows that I pushed information 32 minutes ago. :thinking:

Pure art. :100: And dedication to the cause.

is that yours? how is this possible if its not showing my pushes? I can’t possibly make a new repo everyday.

Nice btw :sunglasses:

in mine there are commits, issues and PRs

It might just be that it takes time to update between the two locations.

for some reason im thinking it may have something to do with the registered emails being different. I don’t see why they would be different but I remember VS Code asking me if I wanted to “claim the email” or something to that effect. I tried, but at the time I couldn’t remember my GH login so I couldn’t do it. It hasn’t asked me to claim the email since.

Ive tried doing

git config

to find the email its using but no luck. I can’t find the email to add it. Im not sure why it was using a separate mail in the first place.

Hell no, just an image that turns up if you search for “github squares”. I saw others that spelled “HIRE ME”. I suppose it’s from an account that uses a script to auto-commit x times on day y. If it was a script, I agree @JeremyLT that it’s art, otherwise obsession, creating that image took 11 months. Or 20 minutes if it’s photoshopped, in which case it’s neither art nor obsession.


ok I fixed it. Yeah for some reason it was registering my commits under this weird local host address… but once I figured how to add that to my list of emails it works fine.

Up and running smoothly. Thanks for your help guys, I SUPER appreciate it :+1:
