I’m trying to learn to use git and was going to add my expo project to a git repo, but noticed that there already was a .git folder and a .gitignore file in the project folder. I’ve tried to find information about why expo does this, without any luck. Does expo use this or can i remove it and make it my own git repo without ruining anything?
Expo initialized a Git repo in your project just so you don’t have to. If you want to be sure you’re starting from a clean slate on your own, just run
# removes whole .git directory in the current working directory rm -rf .git
in your project’s directory. Then you can run
git init to initialize a Git repo on your own, but that won’t be different in any way from just using the one that already is there. It shouldn’t have any commits or remotes set up.
