Git commands not working!
I am working through this video and it doesn't appear to be accepting any of the git commands, all it will respond with is "On branch master nothing to commit, working directory clean" I am not really sure about how to move forward now, what is it that I am missing? Thank you for any help in advance!
I googled "does atom have terminal" and looks like it's not built in by default but there are packages you can install. This is the first result: https://atom.io/packages/terminal-plus
Atom is all right for a beginner, but I've been using VS Code and it's awesome. It has a built-in terminal and way more features than Atom. A lot of professional developers use it. https://code.visualstudio.com/
I do think it's important to be able to use the command line on your machine though. This course looks good: https://teamtreehouse.com/library/console-foundations
Here's instructions on uploading a project to Github: https://help.github.com/articles/adding-an-existing-project-to-github-using-the-command-line/
Treehouse console is the workspace version of terminal (on Mac) or command prompt or power shell (on Windows). Some code editors have terminal built-in and there are some apps, but generally developers use terminal/command prompt to use git. Chrome devtools is used to debug a website when using the Chrome browser. It has nothing to do with git.
