Okay, Damned let me start from the top. I have been tasked to figure out how to use atom on MACs with guthub by my instructor so she can make this part of her Pythion class. She does not want the git client she wants one tool - Atom. So I started with the documentation, the atom flight manual here:
This how is not a ‘this is how to set things up’ rather its a hey here are the features within atom/github interaction. Okay that is fine, but where is the ‘how to’. So I googled around and everything I found was very outdated and did not reveal anything new on how to make git and atom work together.
Literally, that is what i have been asked to figure out, again how to get atom and git to work together. It was stated that ‘it just works’ well it doesn’t. I have installed Atom I have a GitHub account but they are not talking and I can’t figure out why. So I came to this forum.
All right hopefully I have cleared up the goal of this endeavor for you. Now to your questions regarding the repositories. I have been trying all sorts of things and think that I tried each scenario you outlined. However, given the previously stated goal here the most correct would we are wanting to set up repositories from scratch.
Yes, our goal as a new org is to learn git cli for the reasons you stated, however, we are trying to keep the moving parts to a minimum and are surprised to not find any ‘how to’ documentation. Now if you come back and say well to do this you need to install git that is just fine as well, just adding more complexity is not the out of the box goal.
As to the question of what we understand, honestly, we are new to this. The team is network engineers that are actively learning python to develop automation scripts as part of a larger effort that is not important to this discussion.
Here is hoping this post met your requirements to provide some guidance and fingers crossed that you have time to answer us sooner rather than later. Thank you in advance.
