Starting from scratch
To start using your repository from scratch, in your command line type the following:
git clone https://accountname.git.beanstalkapp.com/gitreponame.git -o beanstalk
echo “This is my new project on Beanstalk.” > README
git add README
git commit -m “My first commit.”
git push beanstalk master
With the commands above, you will create a folder, add a file to it, make your first commit, and push the changes to your repository, to master branch. Master branch is the default branch to use for your files.
