I’ve spent 2 days trying to post a simple blog on GitHub. It’s nice to have version control, but beyond that, I don’t understand the GitHub concept. Why are we building a site and then transferring it somewhere else? How do those two platforms talk to each other (e.g., Sublime and GitHub)? Why do we have to install eight other apps before we can commit, and how do we figure out which prerequisites we need and how to set them up? Here’s an example from a so-called “beginner’s tutorial.” This is the second paragraph of the document, so there are no prior other instructions:
The first thing we’ve done is made a virtual environment, set up a requirements.txt, installed django and initialized a django project. That means our project folder now looks something like this…
Huh? Do what, now?
I’ve read the Sublime documentation, watched some YouTube tutorials, and read a lot of blog posts, but I can’t even figure out how to push a simple index page to my site. I don’t understand why this is so complicated. Could someone please help me?? Or just tell me I have no business trying to learn how to code. Thanks, everyone.
By the way, I’m using High Sierra 10.13.6, and my browser is Chrome canary. My repository is here: https://melissakinsey.github.io/
