When you first try and push to a
git repository, you may get the following error message:
error: src refspec master does not match any. error: failed to push some refs to 'git@github ... .git'
This is because you have not committed your files!
How to Fix
src refspec main does not match
git commit -m "initial commit" git push origin main
The above code will commit your files that are staged, before pushing them to your desired branch.
By default, we push our code to the
main branch above. Swap this out with another branch if you need.
