Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
I'm trying to follow the directions in the video...it's a little confusing because we already downloaded and set up a GIT command line, but in the video the instructor is using the console here on Treehouse. When it was time to commit, the git console asked me who I was and displayed some git config lines for me to give my email and my name. I did that, but now it says:
on branch master Initial commit Untracked files readme.txt Nothing added to commit but untracked files present```

did you add the files to the staging area before you commited?
you need to add any untracked files first using
git add .
which will add the files in the current directory to the staging area.
then you can run the commit command
I went back and rewatched videos and used the Treehouse console so it wouldn't be confusing and I'm moving forward. Thanks for your help!
Thanks, I think I will soon, but right now, it's easier using Treehouse so I match what the instructor teaches.
