Github

Hello

I am having problems following these instructions:
https://www.codecademy.com/paths/computer-science/tracks/cspath-development-skills/modules/learn-git-git-workflow-u/articles/f1-u3-git-setup

when it says that I should "Copy the Git commands on the GitHub page, under the title “…or push an existing repository from the command line”, and paste them into your Command Line Interface. " my question is : what exactly is Command Line Interface?

I think it refers to Gitbash but I copy them there and nothing happens

Thanks
Silvia

If you’re on mac it’s your terminal. Something like git bash on windows.

Might look something like this:

In terms of nothing happening, usually when you type a command there’s some output as feedback, what are you getting? These are big clues as to what’s happening. You should consider taking the course on the command-line interface. It’s not too long, and it’s great for getting started on something that can be daunting for a lot of people (myself included).

I took a full course in it and it only highlighted how much there is to know about it…

But at least the codecademy course can help you have some tools for making it less daunting.
