Creating a repository and committing files.

Repository can be created in two ways :
1. Take a local directory which is not under version control and convert it into GIT directory which is under version control
2. Take a online repository which already has files in it and clone it to your system.

  1. Making you own new repository (command : git init) and adding files to it (command : git add <fileName>)
git init
git add file1
git commit -m "Fist Commit"

2. Cloning files from an online repository

git clone https://github.com/libgit2/libgit2

Committing files directly in GIT (Skipping the staging area)

As we saw in the above example we can commit files into git using command git -m “Commit”, but only if the files are added to the staging area. If you want to directly commit a file without adding it into the staging area you can also do that but this type of commit commits all the files that are modified directly, it is a bit risky to add all the files hence you need to be sure before doing such type of commits.
