Nice work! We have a clone of Sally’s remote on our computer. One thing that Git does behind the scenes when you clone science-quizzes is give the remote address the name origin, so that you can refer to it more conveniently. In this case, Sally’s remote is origin.
You can see a list of a Git project’s remotes with the command:
git remote -v
Using the file navigator, examine the contents of the cloned Git project. There are a few quiz files here, which we will be working with during this lesson.
Open a file of your choice in the code editor.
Change directories into the my-quizzes directory, enter this command on the terminal:
To learn more about
cd, take a look at our command line course.
git remote -v to list the remotes.
Notice the output:
origin /home/ccuser/workspace/curriculum/science-quizzes (fetch) origin /home/ccuser/workspace/curriculum/science-quizzes (push)
- Git lists the name of the remote,
origin, as well as its location.
- Git automatically names this remote
origin, because it refers to the remote repository of origin. However, it is possible to safely change its name.
- The remote is listed twice: once for
(fetch)and once for
(push). We’ll learn about these later in the lesson.
