Gitlab: Glossary

Key Points

Creating a local repositry
  • Always add a file to your repositry

  • Write verbose and useful commit messages.

  • Use your .ssh/id_rsa and .ssh/ keys to verify your identy to CERN

Creating the remote repository
  • Initializing a new repository is very easy

  • Share your code as appropriate

  • Once you’ve pushed to gitlab, your code is backed up!

Coffee Break
  • Breaks are great

Adding Code
  • Your credentials can be used within an image

  • Always compile and test code before pushing

Modifying your friend's code
  • You can (and usually will) start with someone else’s code.

Making a merge request
  • You can fix someone else’s code without direct edit rights to their repository

  • Submodules allow you to share common code between projects

  • Sometimes simply consuming a submodule is a better option


The glossary would go here, formatted as:

key word 2

({:auto_ids} is needed at the start so that Jekyll will automatically generate a unique ID for each item to allow other pages to hyperlink to specific glossary entries.) This renders as:
