Commit and push changes to Git repository

After you've added new files to the local Git repository, or modified files that are already under Git version control and you are happy with their current state, you can share the results of your work. This involves committing them locally to record the snapshot of your repository to the project history, and then pushing them to the remote repository so that they become available to others.

Work with commits

Commit changes locally

  1. Open the Git tool or press ⌃ G,⌃ C.

    Git tab with a list of changed files and a window to write the commit message

    If you want to group the list of changed files by directory, click the Settings icon and select Group by | Directory.

Push changes to a remote repository

Before pushing your changes, sync with the remote and make sure your local copy of the repository is up to date to avoid conflicts.

  1. From the main menu, choose Git | Push or press ⌃ G,⌃ P.

  2. In the Git Push dialog that opens, click Push.

  3. To push the changes to the remote branch, you now need to log in to your GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket account.

    • For GitLab and Bitbucket, enter your credentials and click Log in.

    • For GitHub, enter your personal access token and click Log in. If you do not have a token, follow the Generate link to generate a new personal access token in your GitHub settings.
