What is Hacktoberfest? 🤔

Hacktoberfest brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with GitHub and Intel is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards resolving issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like, and ones they've just discovered. No contribution is too small bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating. Celebrated every month of October based on the German festivity Oktoberfest.

Hacktoberfest is open to everyone in the global community. Whether youre a developer, student learning to code, event host, or company of any size, you can help drive growth of open source and make positive contributions to an ever-growing community.

Visit the official website of Hacktoberfest.

2. Clone it 👥

NOTE: commands are to be executed on Linux, Mac, and Windows(using Powershell)

You need to clone (download) it to local machine using

$ git clone

This makes a local copy of the repository in your machine.

Once you have cloned the Hacktoberfest_2021 repository in Github, move to that folder first using change directory command on Linux, Mac, and Windows(PowerShell to be used).

# This will change directory to a folder Hacktoberfest_2021
$ cd Hacktoberfest_2021

Move to this folder for all other commands.

3. Set it up ⬆️

Run the following commands to see that your local copy has a reference to your forked remote repository in Github

$ git remote -v
origin (fetch)
origin (push)

Now, let's add a reference to the original Hacktoberfest_2021 repository using

$ git remote add upstream

This adds a new remote named upstream.

See the changes using

$ git remote -v
origin (fetch)
origin (push)
upstream (fetch)
upstream (push)

In your case, you will see

$ git remote -V
origin (fetch)
origin (push)
upstream (fetch)
upstream (push)

4. Sync it ♻️

Always keep your local copy of the repository updated with the original repository. Before making any changes and/or in an appropriate interval, run the following commands carefully to update your local repository.

# Fetch all remote repositories and delete any deleted remote branches
$ git fetch --all --prune

# Switch to `main` branch
$ git checkout main

# Reset local `main` branch to match the `upstream` repository's `main` branch
$ git reset --hard upstream/main

# Push changes to your forked `Hacktoberfest_2021` repo
$ git push origin main

5. Ready, steady, go... 🐢 🐇

Once you have completed these steps, you are ready to start contributing by checking our Good First Issue Issues and creating pull requests.

6. Create a new branch‼️

Whenever you are going to contribute. Please create a separate branch using command and keep your main branch clean (i.e. synced with remote branch).

# It will create a new branch with name Branch_Name and switch to branch Folder_Name
$ git checkout -b BranchName

Create a separate branch for contribution and try to use the same name of the branch as of folder.

To switch to the desired branch

# To switch from one folder to other
$ git checkout BranchName

To add the changes to the branch. Use

# To add all files to branch Folder_Name
$ git add .

Type in a message relevant for the code reviewer using

# This message get associated with all files you have changed
$ git commit -m 'relevant message'

Now, Push your awesome work to your remote repository using

# To push your work to your remote repository
$ git push -u origin BranchName

Finally, go to your repository in the browser and click on compare and pull requests. Then add a title and description to your pull request that explains your precious effort.
