GitHub Version Management in PyCharm: Getting Started (A Mac Tutorial)

NOTE: You will want to have already established your "project" in PyCharm and figured out how PyCharm generally works before starting this.

1. Open your "Project" in PyCharm.

2. Open PyCharm Preferences (Top Menu PyCharm --> "Preferences")

3. In Preferences, under "Project Settings", select "Version Control", then "GitHub". Enter your GitHub credentials, then select "Test". Apply these settings. You will be promted to create a keychain password, it can be anything you want.

4. Return to your project.

5. On top menu bar, go to VCS -> "Import into Version Control" -> "Share Project on GitHub".

6. You will be prompted to name your new repository.

8. Open your internet browser, then navigate to your GitHub account and select the new repository. This will contain instructions.

9. I used the "Create from Command Line instructions. Basically, navigate to your project folder via command line, then enter the following commands. You will need to use your specific REPO_NAME and SPECIFIC LINK instead of where that text is, but this will be explained on the GitHub page with instructions.

10. Add, commit, and push your files as normal, or utilize the GUI features for these functions from within PyCharm.
