The Command Line for Beginners series is underway! | Modules Unraveled
I've had a lot of requests for a series on Git, so I started to put one together. Well, when I started I thought, "I bet there are a lot of people who want to use Git, but don't actually use the command line much." So, I decided to add some command line basics to the beginning of the Git series, and when I was done, decided they could stand alone as their own series. So, here it is:
These are the videos released last week:
This is simply an introduction to the series and shows what will be covered.
Installing iTerm on a Mac
If you're on a mac, I recommend using the iTerm application, so this video covers installing that.
Installing Git for Windows on a Windows Machine
If you're on a windows machine, you'll most likely need something to help you interface with UNIX based commands. Git for Windows fills that hole.
Viewing Your Current Directory and its Contents with the "pwd" and "ls" Commands
When in the command line, you'll find yourself wondering "Where am I? and what files are here?" The pwd and ls commands answer those questions.
Listing Hidden Files and Folders with the "-a" and "-l" Options for "ls"
In Drupal (and outside of Drupal) there are hidden files. If you need to access them, the ls command doesn't show them by default. This video shows how to see them in your list.
Moving Into and Out of Directories with the "cd" Command
Navigating the file structure is an essential skill in the command line. This video will show you how to get around.
