I’m using the git panel in 1.18 for the first time. I’m working with an existing local repo I initialised from the command line. Also following the mini tutorials on https://github.atom.io/. Stage works fine, commit works fine.
After creating a branch locally in Atom, and committing files to it, when I click ‘push’ I get
No remote detected for branch temp. Cannot push because there is no remote named "origin" for which to create a remote tracking branch.
That is true because earlier I used
git remote add gh <mygithubrepo.git> in iTerm to define the remote. Newsflash, not everybody uses “origin”! Atom doesn’t seem to be capable of detecting the alias of the remote.
Should I have configured something in Atom before attempting this, or is it a bug?
