Publishing a local repository

Save your local repository to a remote server.

Projects are often started locally, on a developer's local hard drive. After some time, it might be become interesting to include a remote repository in the workflow - most notably in order to collaborate with others or just becuase sharing is caring.

With a couple of steps, you can easily publish your formerly local project on a remote server.

1. Add the local repository to Thermal

Firstly, make sure you've already added the respective local repository to Thermal (see Add an existing repository for more information).

If you have initalize a new Git repository or it doesn't have a remote url, instead of Pull, Push & Fetch, it will show you Publish.

2. Add the new remote repository in Thermal

With the local repository open in Thermal, connect the newly created remote repository. To do so, click on Publish button in the Thermal's navbar.
