So after I unzip the file, how do I run the cmd "touch index.html", since I'm using Windows 10 and create a new index file for my repository so I can commit and just get started on the coding? I'm not sure what command to use since "touch" isn't proper syntax for Windows and I don't use Linux. I've also been using VS Code, but now I'm back to Atom because it's the literal complementary tool to Github. Do I download Github pages, since I already use Git(Bash)?

In git bash I think touch filename should work. In windows I use echo.>filename to create new files, or you can just create a new file as usual. You might want to familiarize yourself with how git and github works before you start coding.

  • Thank you, Ojou Nii! I'll get started on that!
