how to push code to the existing bitbucket repository first time using sourcetree ?


i have an exitsing code on my local drive and i have created a empty (new ) repo in the bit bucket. now i want to push the code to the repo using the source tree.  i dont want to clone to a new folder and copy the files allover instead i want to commit the existing folder to the repo using source tree not the command line way. Please let me know if anyone has a solution to this.

Hi @Abhilash_Dahagam,

Welcome to Atlassian Community.

There should be instructions for how to populate your repository with local code shown if you access your repository in Bitbucket, but here are the steps:

  1. Cd into your directory that have your code
  2. Initiate it as a Git repository by running these commands
    git init
    git add --all
    git commit -m "Initial Commit"
  3. Copy the URL for you empty repository in Bitbucket
  4. Set the remote URL for your repository and push your initial commit
    git remote add origin <the URL for your Bitbucket repository> 
    git push -u origin master

Done, you should now see your code in Bitbucket.

Thank you.
