  3. Add the files in the local repostiory, this will stage them for the first commit:
    git add .
  4. Then commit them
    git commit -m "Initial commit"
  5. Copy the URL of the repository you set on step 1. For example
  6. Then go back to the terminal add git remote on the folder you just committed:
    git remote add origin
    #then check the remote:
    git remote -v
    #and it should be showing :
    origin (fetch)
    origin (push)
  7. Push your commits to the upstream origin then your branch:
    git push -u origin main
