Question:

I have a local Git repository setup on my laptop. I would like to push it to my desktop.

How can I do that?


Best Answer:


Here's a script that I wrote to do just this thing. The script handles all my usual initialization of new git repos

  • creates .gitignore file
  • initializes .git
  • creates the bare git repo on the server
  • sets up the local git repo to push to that remote repo
  • http://gist.github.com/410050

    You'll definitely have to modify it to suit whatever setup you've got, especially if you're dealing with Windows laptop/desktop.

    Here is the full script:

    #!/bin/bash
    # Create Git Repository
    # created by Jim Kubicek, 2009
    # jimkubicek@gmail.com
    # http://jimkubicek.com
    # DESCRIPTION
    # Create remote git repository from existing project
    # this script needs to be run from within the project directory
    # This script has been created on OS X, so YMMV
    #######
    # Parameters
    REPLOGIN=#Login name
    REPADDRESS=#Repo address
    REPLOCATION=/Users/Shared/Development #Repo location
    # The repo name defaults to the name of the current directory.
    # This regex will accept foldernames with letters and a period.
    # You'll have to edit it if you've got anything else in your folder names.
    REPNAME=`pwd | egrep -o "/[a-zA-Z]+$" | egrep -o "[a-zA-Z.]+"`
    # If you have standard files/directories to be ignored
    # add them here
    echo "Creating .gitignore"
    echo 'build/' >> .gitignore # The build directory should be ignored for Xcode projs
    echo '.DS_Store' >> .gitignore # A good idea on OS X
    # Create the git repo
    echo "Initializing the repo"
    git init
    git add .
    git commit -m "Initial commit"
    # Copy the repo to the server
    echo "Copying the git repo to the server $REPADDRESS"
    TEMPREP="$REPNAME.git"
    git clone --bare .git $TEMPREP
    scp -r $TEMPREP $REPLOGIN@$REPADDRESS:$REPLOCATION/
    rm -rf $TEMPREP
    # Set up the origin for the project
    echo "Linking current repository to remote repository"
    git remote add origin $REPLOGIN@$REPADDRESS:$REPLOCATION/$REPNAME.git/
