Add version control to an existing project
Add version control to an existing project that either has no active version control, or a remote repository that does not have the supported
GitHub®version control system. Projects without version control do not display icons to commit, push, or pull changes or to version history. You can version projects externally using tools provided by a supported version control provider.
- Create a remote repository with the same name as the project.NOTE: If your project has a local repository created with the project but no associated remote repository, pull or push changes to add version control. See either Pull changes that other users make from the remote repository or Push changes that you make to the remote repository.
