How to create a new repository on GitHub


In this tutorial, I will explain how we can create a new empty repository in GitHub.

Implementation Steps

Step 1 – Login to GitHub using your username and password.

Step 2 – In the upper-right corner of any page, use the drop-down menu, and select “New repository” or left side of the page, there is a green button “New“.

Step 3 – Type a name for your repository, and an optional description. Here, I have provided below-mentioned information:

  1. Owner – vibssingh
  2. Repository name – Selenium-TestNG
  3. Description – Demo of Selenium with TestNG (optional)

Step 4 – Choose repository visibility.

I’m selecting the “Public” option as it is a free account. You can select the Private option for a paid account (mostly organizations). For more information, see About repositories.”

Step 5 You can create a “README“, which is a document describing your project. For more information, see About READMEs.”

  • You can create a .gitignore file, which is a set of ignore rules. For more information, see “Ignoring files.
  • You can choose to add a software license for your project. For more information, see “Licensing a repository.”

Click “Create repository” button.

Below is the screenshot of the new repository in GitHub.

Congratulations!!. We have just created a new and empty project in GitLab. Now you can clone this project and start working on it.
