I am so excited after creating my first repository on github and successfully adding some test files to it from my local machine!
But due to my limited internet connection, I stumbled upon some diffulties.

It took me a lot of time and effort, and there were actually a few times when I thought that I wouldn’t be able to do it. It took me hours, and that is not how much it should have taken to just create a new repository.

So i had a huge challenge - How do I make more repositories and add my files to it without the need of a browser... mmmhhh after some vigorous Googling I came upon a simple command using 'curl'.

Challenge was accepted and at 03:10am I was done creating a badass bash script that would not only create a github repository, it would initialise it and push my files to the repository with only a press of a button.

[sourcecode language="bash"]
#!/bin/bash
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
#
# gitrep-create
#
# The purpose of this script is to generate Github repository via cli instead of going to github.com
# Instructions for use:
# 1. Install github [debian: sudo apt-get install -y git]
# 2. Fill in/Enter details
# git config --global user.name "Your Name"
# git config --global user.email "youremail@domain.com"
# 3. Generate token on github.com > Settings > Applications > Generate token
