These are the bare minimum steps you need to take in order to initialise a brand new Git repo. You usually do this when you are about to begin a new coding project, and you want to set up a “blank” master branch and a “blank” dev branch before you write your codes.

To specify your desired Username:
git config user.name [Desired Username]
To specify your desired Email:
git config user.email [Desired Email]
If you do not want to include an email, you can use this instead.
git config user.email "<>"
git commit --allow-empty -m "Initial Creation"
git remote add origin [URL of remote repository] git push -u origin master
git checkout -b dev git push -u origin dev
