Git, installed Visual Studio Code, installed A basic understanding of Git concepts and commands, such as working with repositories, forks, clones, and branches, staging and unstaging changes, and pushing commits. You need a GitHub account. The following example uses a GitHub host, but you can use any Git host for version control in Visual Studio for Mac. If you wish to use GitHub, make sure that you have an account created and configured before following the steps in this article. Creating a remote repo on GitHub. The following example uses a GitHub host, but you can use any Git. In Visual Studio Code, you can open an integrated terminal, initially starting at the root of your workspace. This can be convenient as you don't have to switch windows or alter the state of an existing terminal to perform a quick command-line task. To open the terminal: Use the ⌃` (Windows, Linux Ctrl+`) keyboard shortcut with the backtick. Sign in to GitHub by using Visual Studio Code. Use Visual Studio Code to search GitHub for repos. Clone a repo from Visual Studio Code. Publish a local project to GitHub by using Visual Studio Code. View a timeline of activity on a GitHub repo.
Previous step: Install packages and manage your Python environment
Update Git In Visual Studio Code
Visual Studio provides direct integration with local Git repositories and remote repositories on services like GitHub and Azure Repos. The integration includes cloning a repository, committing changes, and managing branches.
Visual Studio Code Git Settings
This article provides a basic overview of creating a local Git repository for an existing project, and familiarizing yourself with some of Visual Studio's Git-related features.
With a project open in Visual Studio, such as the project from the previous step, right-click the solution and select Add Solution to Source Control. Visual Studio creates a local Git repository that contains your project code.
When Visual Studio detects that the project is managed in a Git repository Git-related controls appear along the bottom right corner of the Visual Studio window. The controls show pending commits, changes, the name of the repository, and the branch. Hover over the controls to see additional information.
When you create a new repository or select any of the Git controls, Visual Studio opens the Team Explorer window. (You can open the window at any time with the View > Team Explorer menu command.) The window has three main panes, which you switch between using the drop-down on the Team Explorer header. The Sync pane, which provides publishing operations, also appears when you select the Push control (the up arrow icon):
Select Changes (or the Git control with the pencil icon) to review uncommitted changes and to commit them when desired.
Double-click a file in the Changes list to open a diff view for that file:
Select Branches (or the Git control with a branch name) to examine branches and perform merge and rebase operations:
Selecting the Git control with the repository name (CosineWave in a previous image), Team Explorer shows a Connect interface with which you can quickly switch to another repository entirely.
When using a local repository, committed changes go directly into the repository. If you're connected to a remote repository, select the drop-down header in Team Explorer, choose Sync to switch to the Synchronization section, and work with the Pull and Fetch commands presented there.

For a much more comprehensive tutorial, including handling merge conflicts, reviewing code with pull requests, rebasing, and cherry-picking changes between branches, see Get started with Git and Azure Repos.
