What are you trying to do?


#3

did you initialize git properly?
use ‘git init’ and try again and make sure you are in the correct folder.


#4

I am on git workflow
when i tried to open vscode and add a text to README.md then save it
i couldnt find the file on the status
so I can process


#5

When you type ls in your terminal what do you see?


#6

README.md hello_world.txt


#7

type this
"code README.md " in terminal
and see if you are editing the correct file.

Looks like the readme file was created. What seems to be the issue then?

I start over and it works
