Our open source community is focussed on understanding the concepts and while doing so, whenever someone gets trapped, they can see one way to code in any language they want. So, we are developing a repository having implementation in as many languages as we can.
You need to clone (download) it to local machine using
$ git clone https://github.com/Your_Username/Algo_Ds_Notes.git
This makes a local copy of repository in your machine.
Once you have cloned the
Algo_Ds_Notes repository in Github, move to that folder first using change directory command on Linux/Mac/Windows.
# This will change directory to a folder Algo_Ds_Notes $ cd Algo_Ds_Notes
Move to this folder for all other commands.
Run the following commands to see that your local copy has a reference to your forked remote repository in Github :octocat:
$ git remote -v origin https://github.com/Your_Username/Algo_Ds_Notes.git (fetch) origin https://github.com/Your_Username/Algo_Ds_Notes.git (push)
Now, lets add a reference to the original Algo_Ds_Notes repository using
$ git remote add upstream https://github.com/jainaman224/Algo_Ds_Notes.git
This adds a new remote named upstream.
See the changes using
$ git remote -v origin https://github.com/Your_Username/Algo_Ds_Notes.git (fetch) origin https://github.com/Your_Username/Algo_Ds_Notes.git (push) upstream https://github.com/jainaman224/Algo_Ds_Notes.git (fetch) upstream https://github.com/jainaman224/Algo_Ds_Notes.git (push)
Always keep your local copy of repository updated with the original repository. Before making any changes and/or in an appropriate interval, run the following commands carefully to update your local repository.
# Fetch all remote repositories and delete any deleted remote branches $ git fetch --all --prune # Switch to `master` branch $ git checkout master # Reset local `master` branch to match `upstream` repository's `master` branch $ git reset --hard upstream/master # Push changes to your forked `Algo_Ds_Notes` repo $ git push origin master
Once you have completed these steps, you are ready to start contributing by checking our
Help Wanted Issues and creating pull requests.
Whenever you are going to make contribution. Please create seperate branch using command and keep your
master branch clean (i.e. synced with remote branch).
# It will create a new branch with name Branch_Name and switch to branch Folder_Name $ git checkout -b Folder_Name
Create a seperate branch for contibution and try to use same name of branch as of folder.
To switch to desired branch
# To switch from one folder to other $ git checkout Folder_Name
To add the changes to the branch. Use
# To add all files to branch Folder_Name $ git add .
Type in a message relevant for the code reveiwer using
# This message get associated with all files you have changed $ git commit -m 'relevant message'
Now, Push your awesome work to your remote repository using
# To push your work to your remote repository $ git push -u origin Folder_Name
Finally, go to your repository in browser and click on
compare and pull requests.
Then add a title and description to your pull request that explains your precious effort.
We love to have
codes in different languages and
betterment of existing ones.
Please discuss it with us first by creating new issue.
