The best programming tutorial is a real project. In a gitorial, each commit is a step, and our tool makes it easy to move through them.

The sidebar shows you what the project will look like when it is finished. Feel free to browse through the files to get an idea of what you'll end up with.

When you purchase this gitorial, you'll be given an address to a git repository you can clone. Basic command line skills are required.

The Terminal for Beginners

The Terminal can be intimidating to newcomers. For aspiring developers it’s an important place to start, as you’ll interface with it early and often. Advanced users will likely not find this guide helpful. It’s not a deep dive into the more complex commands nor does it touch git, but is aimed at anyone who feels overwhelmed as to where to start.

This tutorial is Mac only. While the Terminal and Windows cmd have similarities, it is primarily focused on the Bash Terminal for macOS.

This gitorial assumes you are already familiar with macOS, and can navigate folders using Finder. You’ll also need Xcode, which can be downloaded for free via the app store.

How to get started:

Open Finder and click Applications.

Open the Utilities folder.

Double click the Terminal icon.

Now just type or copy/paste the lines from down below in the instructions into the Terminal.
