In order to send changes from your local Git repository to a remote repository, run the git push command?

The following sequence of commands is usually used in the basic Git workflow:

  • Use git status to see what are the changes in your workspace, in other words what files were added, changed or deleted
  • Use git add . to add all changes from workspace to index (stage)
  • Use git commit -m "Change description" to commit all changes from index (stage) to your local repository
  • Use git push to send all commits that weren't sent previously to a remote repository
