Your Turn

  • Working in your local-first project in RStudio, make an edit to your file, but do not commit your changes

  • Go to the local-first project on GitHub, make a change to your file and save it (this will automatically commit your changes)

  • In RStudio, attempt to pull from GitHub, making sure you get the message about needing to commit your changes before pulling

  • Now commit your edits in the RStudio version of the local-first project

  • Pull again, making sure you can successfully bring in the changes from GitHub

Heads up: you should get a message about a merge conflict. We’ll deal with this in the next lesson!
