Just realised you're probably talking about this

http://tutorials.codebar.io/ is down or is it just me?
Giannis Melidis
@giannismelidis
Hi by the way :-)
Ben Fitzgerald
@helveticafire
It is down
Despo Pentara
@despo
it works for me... is it ok now?
i made some dns changes yesterday so if you notice anything let me know
@giannismelidis and hi.
Giannis Melidis
@giannismelidis
Ahh that might be it
No it doesn't work for me yet :-) But thanks for checking
Despo Pentara
@despo
ok odd, my friend says it doesnt work for him either. might need some more time for all dns to be updated
in the meantime you can access things at http://github.com/codebar/tutorials/
in the html/js/ruby/git directories

@despo
ok now not working for me
:(
possibly because i forgot to setup the DNS. :| at least its not Wednesday.

ooh, a Discuss! Should make the Gitter obsolete, right? Except for discussions specific to the git repo, possibly
Despo Pentara
@despo
lets see how it goes, i do like the simplicity of being able to just ask something that may not necessarily fit within a forum
Jane Dallaway
@janedallaway
@despo nice work :+1:
Despo Pentara
@despo
thank you but its up due to @geopolitis hard work!
Jane Dallaway
@janedallaway
in which case @geopolitis nice work

I will email this out soon, but it would be great if you could sign up at discuss.codebar.io so you are eventually able to respond/direct student questions there

Hi there, I've just signed up and looking forward to meeting you on Wednesday to do the tutorials on Git. I've created the Git Hub account. I used upper case in my username: CarolinaS, that means that now I have this address: https://github.com/CarolinaS/thursday.git. Will that work or do I have to change the name to be all lower case? I know that with PHP some paths have to be all with lower case. Thanks a lot!
Ali
@Najaf
Should be fine, I have upcased chars in my GitHub name, so does @Rosa-Fox
Alex Jahraus
@fanaugen
I would love to volunteer to coach someone on Git & Github basics :)
Carolina Sawney
@assembly21
Wow, well I'll do my homework then!
When configuring a Git user on a Mac, I have to write my name:
git config —global user.name “Carolina Sawney”

Is this the same as the Git user name (CarolinaS), the same as my Mac user name (Carolina), does this matter or can be anything else? See you on Wednesday!
Carolina Sawney
@assembly21
CarolinaS is the Git user account name. That's what I meant.
Ali
@Najaf
I’m fairly sure it can be anything you like. It’s the name that each commit you make will have recorded against it. No need for it to match up with your account on GitHub. I think accessing GitHub with the ssh keys you will have set up is enough for GitHub to authenticate you.
Most people have their name in their .gitconfig set up as their full name just like you have there.
Alex Jahraus
@fanaugen
second that
Carolina Sawney
@assembly21

Done.

I was doing an online tutorial on Git. The tutor suggests to link Git to a text editor by writing this line:

git config —global core.editor “emacs -wl1” 


Here's the transcription:

"I want to show you two more useful ones now. The first is to tell Git what Text Editor you will be using. This allows Git to open up text that needs editing in that editor by default.

There are times when Git is going to want to have you edit a message and so it'll pop up that message in a Text Editor, let you change it, and then close it. And Git will go ahead with what it was going to do. The way we do that is with git config --global and then core.editor and then after that in quotes let's put the name of the editor that we want to use. So if you like using Unix's nano, you can put that there, you can use vim, or emacs, if you are on Windows, you can use notepad.exe, that comes by default with Windows.

I'd like to use TextMates, so I am going to be using M A T E, which is a little program that TextMate provides that sits inside Unix, and it can then launch TextMate. In addition to just launching it though, we need to provide a couple of options with it, which is the -w option, which says, hey after you launch it, wait until TextMate is done before you keep going with what you were going to do Unix, so we need that W option otherwise Unix will open it and then just keep going further as I was doing without waiting for you to finish the message, and then l1 also tells it to start at line 1".

I don’t understand if this should be the IDE, like Komodo, Aptana, IntelligIDEA, etc or a simple text editor like the one he mentions. Apart from the IDE editor, I have TextEdit on the Mac and no idea if this has anything to do with what he is talking about.

Making progress already. Very happy. Thanks.

Since the git config is not for all eternity (can be changed at any time), just pick any editor you like, and that can be launched from the command line by typing a command. Git will then invoke that command whenever it wants you to edit something, such as a commit message. Emacs and vim are editors that will open right inside the CLI (Terminal on Mac OS X), while other editors and IDEs will open in a separate window.

You mentioned TextEdit on Mac OS X, however I’d recommend picking a more code-focused one, such as the free TextWrangler or the hip cool new Atom editor by GitHub (the latter has some bugs and can be slow to start though). Both will let you install a command that’ll launch the editor (it’s edit for TextWrangler, and atom for Atom), which you can then add to the Git config with

git config --global core.editor "edit --wait --resume "$@""

@Najaf
+1 for TextWrangler. It’s got syntax highlighting, in-project search+replace and a project drawer, all you need to start with.

hey I just got a coach invitation for tonight - but the event already started right? can/should I go?
Rosa Fox
@Rosa-Fox
Was this for Brighton or Cambridge? Either way sorry we missed this message! Now that you are signed up you will receive email invites as soon as they are sent which is usually more than a week in advance. Hopefully we will see you at the next one :)

I got a coaching invite for tonight in London, are there any places left?
it sent me straight to the waiting list
Cosmin Stamate
@cosminstamate
so?
yes / no?
anyone?
Rosa Fox
@Rosa-Fox
Heya, I just had a look at the numbers for London tonight and there are 20 mentors and 46 students so I think they could do with the help. I think it might not let you accept the invites too near to the time that the event starts... unless @despo says otherwise, as far as I can tell it would be good if you could mentor :)
