Unity is a cross-platform game engine that allows you to develop 2D, 3D, AR, and VR games and applications. It is a powerful tool that has a built-in scripting system, physics engine, and many other features that make it easy to create interactive and engaging content.
You can use GitHub Desktop to manage the source code of your Unity projects. GitHub Desktop is a Git GUI client that allows you to interact with Git and GitHub in a more user-friendly way. By using GitHub Desktop, you can easily clone, push, pull, and merge your Unity projects with a remote repository on GitHub.
Here are the steps to use GitHub Desktop with your Unity projects:
Create a new repository on GitHub or use an existing one.
Open GitHub Desktop and click on the “+” button on the top left corner and click on “Clone a repository”
Select the repository you want to clone, and choose a location on your computer where you want to clone the repository
Open Unity and create a new project or open an existing one.
In the Unity editor, go to the “Assets” menu and select “Reveal in Finder” (or “Reveal in Explorer” on Windows) to open the project’s folder in your computer’s file explorer.
Copy the files from the Unity project’s folder and paste them into the local repository folder that you cloned with GitHub Desktop.
Return to GitHub Desktop, you will see the changes you made in the repository, you can commit and push the changes to the remote repository on GitHub.
It’s important to note that by default, Unity stores metadata and temp files in the project’s folder, these files are not needed to be pushed to the repository and they could take a lot of space, it’s recommended to use .gitignore file to exclude these files.
Also, it’s important to keep in mind that if you are working with a team, you should communicate with them and coordinate your work to avoid conflicts, it’s also recommended to use branches to work on different features or bugfixes separately.
