Difficulty: Beginner
Estimated Time: 10 minutes

Building on the previous scenario here you'll learn how to view changes in your working directory and commit them to your repository. This environment has a Git repository with a committed file. In the working directory a change to the committed file exists and a uncommitted file.

In future scenarios we'll cover how you can undo changes and share commits with other people.

This exercise has demonstrated how you can view your changes and commit them to the repository. In the next scenario we'll investigate how to share these changes with other people.

This exercise has been added to your scrapbook where you can review the example and code you written at any point.

Don’t stop now! The next scenario will only take about 10 minutes to complete.

Scenario 2 - Committing Changes

Step 1 of 6

Step 1 - Git Status

As discussed in the previous scenario git status allows us to view the changes in the working directory and staging area compared to the repository.

Given the current repository running git status displays that a change has been made in our working directory to a previously committed file, committed.js, but has not yet been moved to the staging area.
