I am an absolute GitHub noob, but like, I’m trying my best.

When I created this website, I didn’t realise I should have created the hugo new site in a cloned repository that was already on my computer, so, I am using the second answer of this stack overflow question to do it. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3311774/how-to-convert-existing-non-empty-directory-into-a-git-working-directory-and-pus

After some finicking, I now have my Hugo site version control being managed in Git. I think.

My .gitignore file came from here https://github.com/github/gitignore/blob/main/community/Golang/Hugo.gitignore I am only semi-confident in my .gitignore file for the website, but like, it’s fine.

I used this when my website did weird stuff. One day I will stop nuking my repos when things go wrong. I don’t mind losing my /public commits because I still have a lot of the history in my digital gardens repo. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2006172/git-how-to-reset-a-remote-git-repository-to-remove-all-commits
