I have created a remote repo named textfile in Github and also linked a local folder named textfile to git. I want to add a new text file from the folder to github. What are the steps for doing that using the command line in Ubuntu?

I am a beginner to GitHub.


Open terminal and go to your repo directory. Add files:

git add *


git commit -m 'my message'

Push it to the Github:

git push origin master
