Git only cloning my README.md file and nothing else.

For some reason, when I am cloning a repository all of my files are not brought over, just my README.md file.

You can see a test I did here:


Am I missing something?

Did you add files 1-3 to your repo? Check if they are being tracked with git status.

That was is it. Simple mistake I hopefully won't do again. :)

Thank you!

Check the status to see which files are not on stage

git status

and then add all files in the project folder

git add -A

or you can add specific file

git add filename

then you can make commit and push
