Edit a file, create a new file, and clone from Bitbucket in under 2 minutes
When you’re done, you can delete the content in this README and update the file with details for others getting started with your repository.
We recommend that you open this README in another tab as you perform the tasks below. You can watch our video for a full demo of all the steps in this tutorial. Open the video in a new tab to avoid leaving Bitbucket.
You’ll start by editing this README file to learn how to edit a file in Bitbucket.
Next, you’ll add a new file to this repository.
Before you move on, go ahead and explore the repository. You’ve already seen the Source page, but check out the Commits, Branches, and Settings pages.
Use these steps to clone from SourceTree, our client for using the repository command-line free. Cloning allows you to work on your files locally. If you don’t yet have SourceTree, download and install first. If you prefer to clone from the command line, see Clone a repository.
Now that you’re more familiar with your Bitbucket repository, go ahead and add a new file locally. You can push your change back to Bitbucket with SourceTree, or you can add, commit, and push from the command line.
