Overview

README for a newly created project.

There are a couple of things you should do first, before you can use all of Mercurial's power:

  • Create new files inside your project
  • Add them to to Mercurial by executing the following command hg add [file1, file2, file3, ...] [Enter]
  • Create a commit which can be pushed to a remote host hg commit -m 'added new files' [Enter]
  • Push the commit a remote host hg push [remote URL] [Enter]

That's it! If this doesn't work for you, please visit the excellent resources from Mercurial and the Mercurial: The Definitive Guide book. If you can't find your answers there, feel free to ask us via Twitter (Cloud9 IDE), mailing list or IRC (#cloud9ide on freenode).

Happy coding!
