Hi All!
Git support + the new integration with GitHub is in the process of rolling out!
When the feature is enabled for you, we'd love to hear how we could improve, and what additions you'd like to see.

feedback so far:

from

@mat1
:
"is there a way to create a .gitignore file? I tried making one but nothing happens when I press enter."

We're working on supporting this soon!

from

@Vandesm14
:
"Is this live? I don't see the git sidebar. Is this an explorer-only feature?"

We're currently in the process of rolling the feature out to everyone. Some users have it enabled currently.

Unstaging particular files doesn't appear to work.

I created a repo using the connect button, but now it seems that my repo is forgotten. When selecting the connect to github button I only get the option to create a new repo and not to connect to the one created previously.

it just completely stopped working... I can't commit, push, etc, and the command line says there's a process already open. I tried clearing cookies, deleting lock files, etc. Why does this feature break every week or so?

It would be nice if replit didn't automatically add all files to the commit around every minute when I specifically removed those files.

Suggestion: Have it where you can change which repository you are going to.
One time when Replit had an issue with it and it basically thought it wasn't connected to any repository, to test, I swapped the repository to see if it would fix the issues (it seems to have been Replit server side). Now, I can't swap it back to the correct one, making no commits go through to either repository.
It still has a history and Replit still commits, just that they don't do anything.

Got stuck during initial creation and now I can't find an option to use existing repo but can't get it to finish populating the one it already created, just gives an error that it can't create the repo.

It lost my branch! I was using this successfully for the past month. Now it has no repository linked or history and honestly I'm a bit anxious to proceed at all and will probably just continue this project at home off replit.

Hi. I am not sure why but my git integration isn't working. I don't see anything in my git repo. It does something when I press commit and push but I don't see anything in git

Bug report: When creating a new repl without a GitHub Repo attached, the version control panel shows commits queued by a Kavish Dhamija, a year ago.

would be nice if it game with a little "beginners guide" with the replit windows, As well as helping newer users it could also let people know that the shell still exists and you aren't limited by the one button.

I forked my own repl to make a development and deployment area for my website (it was already connected to a repo), and git is very confused. The command line thinks I’m still connected to the correct repl but shows the wrong branches, the sidebar won’t let me connect to an existing repl because it thinks I’m already connected to one, and when I try to make a new repo, add all my changes and then make a new repl and clone in, it won’t let me make a new repo.

Firts off all, thank you for this new feature. I have been hable to create a new repository and to commit correctly my changes. The problem is that this commits all the files (including compilation files). I have added a .gitignore file, but this seems to not work and the commit stills incluides this compilation files.

It creates the repository but it doesn't actually show any of the files on github. Super weird, I've deleted the repo and tried relinking and it still doesn't work. Repl: https://replit.com/@JadenCodes/Pilot

I accidentally created a git repo in my repl and there's no option to delete it. I feel this should be a basic funtionality. I also can't delete branches or even turn off version control for a repl. Would be nice to see this added.

I'm trying to merge a pretty large file to a created repo, but it just wont load. It just gets frozen at loading...

I am unable to revert back to previous iterations (versions). Whenever I try to revert, it loads for a few seconds and then nothing.
