How to add local folder to a GitLab project

GitLab is an open source application used to code, test and deploy code together. It provides the Git repository management with access controls, code reviews, issue tracking and activity feeds. This tutorial will explain about the process of adding local folder to a GitLab project.


Configuration procedure

To start the configuration procedure, first move to the local folder of the Git using the cd command. 

[user1@localhost Desktop]$ cd git/

Run the Git init command to initialize Git repository in the target system.

[user1@localhost git]$ git init
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/user1/Desktop/git/.git/

Add the project path in which the local folder is to be copied and execute the command. 


[user1@localhost git]$ git remote add origin git@

Now add the files to the list which has to be tracked. To add the whole files give “.”

[user1@localhost git]$ git add .

Run the Git commit command to list the files that has to be pushed.

[user1@localhost git]$ git commit -m '1st commit'
[master (root-commit) c2bf8c4] 1st commit
 Committer: user1 <user1@localhost.localdomain>
