Hi @roelof wobben


You need to configure your remote repository on GitHub with your local repository on your machine.

It is an easy process which needs following steps to be followed taking into consideration that you have gitHub repository already set.


1.Add a remote to your repository(local)

   a. click on repository.

   b. In repository explorer check for "Remote" tab

   c. Right click -> add remote

   d. click "add" from pop up screen, fill out required information

        remote name :- could be anything(alias)

        URL :- repo on git hub

   e. In extended information you can select github as hosting type followed by username for further authentication


2.once a remote set has done you can commit and push code to github server.


hope that answers your question!
