Now that you have a fork of DEV's source code, there is work you will need to do to keep it updated.
Inside your DEV directory, add a remote to the official DEV repo:
git remote add upstream https://github.com/thepracticaldev/dev.to.git
Do this prior to every time you create a branch for a PR:
Make sure you are on the master branch:
1 2 3
$ git status On branch master Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.
If your aren't on
master, finish your work and checkout the
git checkout master
Do a pull with rebase against
git pull --rebase upstream master
This will pull down all of the changes to the official
master branch, without making an additional commit in your local repo.
(Optional) Force push your updated
master branch to your GitHub fork
git push origin master --force
This will overwrite the
master branch of your fork.
