Creating New Branches

githubIn GitHub multiple versions are managed using branches.  This article describes the process of using branches.


Start by browsing to the GitHub website, and logging on.

  1. Open a Repository by clicking on it.
  2. Click the Branch: Master button.
  3. Enter a name of a new Branch (e.g. stevens-edits).
  4. Click the Create branch button, or press Enter.

 You now have two branches, master and stevens-edits.  Click on the Branch: button to select stevens-edits and make your own changes without affecting the master.
