4GitHub and SSH Linking


In the previous section we installed and set up the Git and Git Bash local version control system.

In this section we will create an online GitHub account, create a remote repository and then link this remote repository to our local Git application. In the next section (section 5), we will expand this to make a local clone of a remote repository using Brackets and the Brackets-Git extension.

The link between the two repositories will use secure shell protocol (SSH) and I will explain in this section, how to generate the SSH security keys and how to deploy them.
