This is a share of the very useful guide by Michael Crump on how to connect Github repositories with Visual Studio’s Projects and use VS’s Team Explorer for fast commits without needing Github’s application.
!!!ATTENTION:Something Michael doesn’t stress is that you ABSOLUTELY HAVE to leave the unchecked for the readme and license so that Github creates an empty repo.The reason being that VS creates its own .git when you Add a project to Source Control.So if you check either of those two files to be generated Github generates its own .git file and you’ll end up with two master branches(1 locally from VS and 1 remotely from Github) and VS unable to publish its own master branch.From messing around with it I didn’t find a way to just grab the remote repo and use it so better to add licenses and readmes after you’ve successfully connected VS with Github.
