Would anyone be willing to help me with GitHub? I don't know how to upload my project. On GitHub I can only see the "Readme.md" and no other files, and when I push master from Eclipse it says it's up to date. But nothing new appears on the GitHub page. I tried "upload files" but I can only upload actual files, not folders, so the folder structure is not preserved.

Thanks if anyone can help!

If you create a new file adding in the file name field a path containing a not existing folder, the folder will be created.

But using the desktop application is easier.

Yeah that's what I tried - I created the whole folder structure by making empty text files, uploaded all the files in the right folders, then made a new workspace and imported from git. But then I couldn't run the program (Java Application wouldn't appear when right-clicking Main.java and selecting Run As). Yet, if I created the project without github and then pushed it, it ran fine but the files don't appear in the repository on the webpage (only readme.md). I probably need to do some reading rather than just trying stuff and hoping it will work :-p

If you already have a directory on your computer without a GitHub repository attached you'll have to initialize the repository on the project folder.

I believe the GitHub app will do this automatically for you

With git you normally don't want to commit the compiled files, those are meant for the releases section on GitHub

git certainly isn't as simple as a FTP server but it's immensely more powerful...

I would definitely suggest you start with the GitHub app and once you get acquainted with git you can move on to something more advanced (the GitHub app is very limited in comparison)
