Thanks Steve! Yeah, we do cater more to Macs as that's what is used for our coding. It's a bit easier for many things like git, in large part to their being a Linux-like command line. Understandable that's it's frustrating for a windows-user.
So, I switched over to following the Setup video and mimicked that as closely as possible on my Mac, as this should come closer to approximating your environment. The Setup video is at the Help Me menu toward the top of each (or most) Project pages, and the Watch Setup Video option. Did you follow that video as best you could?
Note: ignore the node and npm stuff. Not required, and it'll help simplify things for now.
I pushed my src html code with git + in attom then tried to sync it in the git desktop app. That is where I get the error message . It doesn't allow me to publish it.
To simplify things further, avoid pushing using Atom, and just use github desktop. You mentioned "publish" too. Did you mean push? If not, please explain that further. Also, just make one change, so you just pass the first task which requires you to have a div with a class of header. It should look something like this:
After you commit in github desktop, push up the change. As the version of github desktop is newer, it's different from the setup video. What version is your github desktop, and does it look similar to mine?
Let me know if that works, and if not, what happens (e.g., if there's an error message, let me know what that is)
A few things I can think of that are causing problems:
- you forked the project correctly, at a glance, on github. Nicely done! But, you may've cloned our project, not your fork. Double-check that. Deleting and starting over at this stage won't hurt, and you can make a copy of the html and css files if you have changes.
- You didn't allow github desktop access to your repo. Signing in via github desktop to your github account will accomplish that. You can check if it has proper access by going to the following page on your github account
- Less likely this is the cause, but you may not be editing in atom the same file that is in your local git repository.
Hopefully that helps and at least is a start. Check into those things and let us know if that helps!
If anyone else who has gotten it to work on Windows can weigh-in, too, that'd be helpful, so please do!
