The clone command makes a copy of repository into a new directory called first-gitlab-prjt.

C:\>cd first-gitlab-prjt

The above command creates a file in which you can put the information about your folder.

Step 6 − Add the file to your created directory by using the below command −

C:\first-gitlab-prjt>git add

Step 7 − Now store the changes to the repository along with the log message as shown below −

C:\first-gitlab-prjt>git commit -m "add README"

The flag -m is used for adding a message on the commit.

Step 8 − Push the commits to remote repository which are made on the local branch −

C:\first-gitlab-prjt>git push -u origin master
