When creating a storage facility at GitHub, there is a nuance – it curses at files over 100 MB.
The solution is to supply Git Large File Storage. This will allow uploading files up to 2 GB.
git lfs install
Step 1: In PowerShell, we go to the local folder of the repository and add which types of files we will monitor:
cd c:\GitHub\NookTabletROM git lfs track "*.zip"
As a result, the .gitattributes will have the necessary extensions:
Step 2: Index the files in the repository:
git add path/to/file.psd
or index the entire repository:
git add *.*
Step 3: Commit (fix the current version) and send it to a repository:
git commit -m "add file.psd" git push origin master
That’s it, the files will go to Github.
You can read more about it here:
- Githab is not intended to be a file storage facility.
- It is recommended to take no more than 1 Gb.
- Maximum repository size – 100 GB and get kicked in the ass.
- You get 1 GB of storage quota and 1 GB of traffic (bandwidth) per month
Hmm, how did I upload 5 GB of firmware files once? ))
