Connecting repl.it to a GitHub repo?
CaptainAnon (47)

Is there any way that I can connect a repl to a github repository, so that I can make commits and pull requests?

I would love to connect my folder on reple.it to GitHub.would be great to have that

@nik_safe I think that's now possible to do.

@CaptainAnon is there a documentation or a link available about who to do that ?

@nik_safe If you create a new repl there is an option to enter a github.com URL.

@CaptainAnon No, that just does a one way import. You want read and write back to the repo.

@triptych You can use the git command. Command (or control on windows) + Shift + P and then search for 'open shell.'

@CaptainAnon when i open the shell, git doesn't work. It's not installed in my repl apparently.

@abueide1 What sort of repl are you using? It works for me in a Python 3 repl.

Not at the moment, however don't worry! This feature is planned and being developed as we speak.

@YesidCano, @CaptainAnon mentioned below that we can use openshell with cmd/ctrl + shift + p aka command line
