Made a website and described how I did it? Introduced myself? Described and made a sketch of my final project? Documented the steps for uploading files to the archive? Pushed to the class archive? Summary During the week I mainly spent time in understanding what the FabAcademy was and getting used with a new environment. This page collects the work I did with Linux command line, GitLab versioning and web design with Bootstrap.
When you do not have the permissions to execute commands in a folder, you can put the command sudo beforehand and type the password.
$^C interrupts the current command $clear cleans the terminal $ –help explains the command $man show the manual for each command $cd ~ takes to home directory $cd .. takes to father directory $pwd shows in which directory you are $mkdir make a new folder $ls lists elements in a directory $ls –la same as ls but it also shows authentication and hidden folders $rm delete file $rm –rf deletes the folder and its content $nano creates a text file in the directory and opens a text editor $touch creates a file $cat prints on the terminal a textual file $tale prints on the terminal a textual file in each row $apt-get install it installs a package or software $apt-get remove it removes a package or software
GitLab The website we use for documenting our work is actually hosted on a GitLab repository. Even though it has a web interface, we were strongly recommended using Linux terminal. It follows a basic personal library of commands to interact with the repository(based on this):
GIT - the stupid content tracker "git" can mean anything, depending on your mood. - random three-letter combination that is pronounceable, and not actually used by any common UNIX command. The fact that it is a mispronounciation of "get" may or may not be relevant. - stupid. contemptible and despicable. simple. Take your pick from the dictionary of slang. - "global information tracker": you're in a good mood, and it actually works for you. Angels sing, and a light suddenly fills the room. - "goddamn idiotic truckload of sh*t": when it breaks
The steps to be executed in order to set-up a local repository with Git are nicely explained following this tutorial. In our case, we did not have to create a repository but we just had to get a development copy of the GitLab/fablabtoscana2016 on our desktop. In steps we did: 1.Create an account on GitLab; 2.Generate SSH keys for the project, as explained here; 3.Configure the user name if that has not been done yet; 4.Open the terminal and launch the following commands, as explained here;
$git config --global user.name "Your Name Comes Here" $git config --global user.email firstname.lastname@example.org for setting up authorship $git init begins the version control $git add applies the changes to the file $git commit confirms the changes $git checkout denies the changes $git diff shows the changes from previous file $git status gives a summary of the current situation $git man opens the help page for a command $git log tells you what others did change/upload in the directory
It follows the list of commands/actions to be executed when willing to apply changes to one's repository. First physically modify/add/remove one or multiple files within the git folder on your desktop.
cd directory $git clone email@example.com:fabacademy2016/fablabtoscana2016.git
cd ...directory where changes are made $git status to check that the changes are actually recognised $git add . $git commit -m'whatever'' $git pull origin master $git push origin master C^X if you get NANO text editor : q ENTER if you get VIM text editor
