Feedback for git support + the new GitHub integration
replitjeremy (60)

Hi All!
Git support + the new integration with GitHub is in the process of rolling out!
When the feature is enabled for you, we'd love to hear how we could improve, and what additions you'd like to see.

feedback so far:

from @mat1:
"is there a way to create a .gitignore file? I tried making one but nothing happens when I press enter."

We're working on supporting this soon!

from @Vandesm14:
"Is this live? I don't see the git sidebar. Is this an explorer-only feature?"

We're currently in the process of rolling the feature out to everyone. Some users have it enabled currently.

@ma173 The idea when we built the GitHub integration is that you would push branches to GitHub and merge them as pull requests. This is a very common way to contribute to open source projects which was one of our goals for the feature. Doesn't make quite as much sense for a personal project though!
