Store your new prototype in GitHub

To store your new prototype in GitHub, you need to set up GitHub Desktop.

  1. In GitHub Desktop, select Add an Existing Repository (if it's not on the screen, click the File menu and select Add Local Repository).

  2. Click the Choose button and select your prototype folder.

If Github Desktop shows a warning

You may get a warning, like this screenshot:

Screenshot of the GitHub Desktop app. There is a separate pop-up box with the heading 'Add local repository'. In this box there is a text input labelled 'local path'. A button labelled 'choose'. A link titled 'Create a repository'. A button labelled 'Cancel'. And a button labelled 'Add repository'.

Do not worry if you get this warning - this is the correct process.

  1. In the warning, click the create a repository link.

  2. On the next screen, titled Create a repository, click the Create repository button.

Upload your prototype to GitHub

  1. In the top right, click publish repository

  2. Make sure 'Keep this code private' is not ticked, as we need others to be able to see and collaborate on it.

  3. Click publish repository

Your prototype code is now on GitHub, which means other people can see and collaborate on your code.
