# Best practices
* Fetch the upstream before creating a new branch.
* Work on your <font color="red">own</font> branch (in your own fork), and **not** on `master` and **not** on `develop`
* Get your code **reviewed** by your peers (submit a PR!)
* Submit a PR **often**!
* `Push` often - avoid conflicts
Remember: **A `push` a day keeps conflicts away!**
# Development scheme
Generally, in a repository, there are guidelines for contributing.
<div class="fragment">
A common development scheme is dual with a:
- **development** version of the code on `develop`
- **stable** version of the code on `master`
A **version** of the code/text is referred to as a **branch**.
<div class="fragment">
<font color="red">In the `howto-cards-internal` repository, the development branch is called `develop`!</font>
<div class="fragment">
![bulb](slides/img/bulb.png) Use this dual development scheme for your own repositories!
# Branches
A **version** of the code (i.e., a **branch**) is made up of a sequence of code changes.
<div class="fragment">
These individual code changes are called **commits**.
For instance, the `master` and `develop` branches can be represented as a timeline:

# Switch between branches

# Create your own version
Assume that you want to work on a file:
<div class="fragment">
<font color="red">Create a new **branch** and start editing!</font>

# How to configure `git`?
$ git config --global "Firstname Lastname"
$ git config --global ""
Test whether your username and email have been registered
$ git config --list
This should list the configuration with `` and ``.
# What is an SSH key?
An SSH key is a secure access credential.
**Principle**: <br><br>
Communicate **securely** with Github/Gitlab **without** entering the username/password.
# How do I get and set my SSH key?
Check if you already have an SSH key:
$ ls -al ~/.ssh
If there are 2 files named `id_rsa`, you have an SSH key.
If you don’t have yet an SSH key, you have to generate one:
$ ssh-keygen -t rsa # -b 4096
Then, add the SSH key to your profile on git-r3lab.
On Windows, please unmount `P:\` (your personal atlas folder) first.

# What is a `fork`?
- In general, when contributing to a repository, you only have **read** access.
- In other words, you can only **pull** (unless it is your own repository or access has been granted).
- In general, you **cannot write** changes. In other words, you do not have **push** access.
- You have to work on your **own copy**.
- In other words, you have to work on your own <font color="red">**fork**</font>.
<h2>How to get a fork?</h1>
Browse to the original repository and click on the button `Fork`:
![Fork the repo](
# How to update my fork?
As you have your own fork, it will not automatically be updated once the original repository is updated.
![bulb](slides/img/bulb.png) You have to update it yourself!

# GitHub and GitLab

GitHub and GitLab are online platforms for developing code using the version control system (VCS) `git`.
Positive point: GitHub and GitLab are (almost) the same.

# Merge requests
If you want your changes to be reflected on the `develop` or `master` branches,
**submit a MR** via the Gitlab interface.
Use the **interface** to make use of your peers to review your code!
<img src="slides/img/branch-merge.png" class="branch-merge" height="500em"/>
Once merged, you can delete the branch via the interface.

# What is `git`? (i)
<!-- ![](slides/img/git_definition.png) -->
`git` is a **version control system** (VCS) for tracking changes in computer files and coordinating work on those files among multiple people [1].
Designed and implemented in 2005 by **Linus Torvalds**

# What is `git`? (ii)

`I'm an egotistical bastard, and I name all my projects after myself.
First Linux, now git.`
Linus Torvald (2007-06-14)
# What is the use of `git`?
* `git` can be used for code or text documents, such as markdown language
* No need to fully rewrite code/text; **reuse code/text** and **save time**
* Keep the changes you made over time (**history**)
* Allows you to **backtrack** (if necessary) and undo unwanted changes
* Easily **add contributions** of your collaborators to the main repository
Other points:
- `git` shall not be considered as a nuisance, but as a tool that should help to track and trace the code.
- `git` is not to track performance. Not using it shows exactly the opposite.
