GIT – pushing to (GitHub) origin master does nothing
I have forked someone’s GIT repository:
Cloned it to my local machine, showing the origin with the following information:
* remote origin Fetch URL: https://email@example.com/nippysaurus/toodledo-objc.git Push URL: https://firstname.lastname@example.org/nippysaurus/toodledo-objc.git HEAD branch: master Remote branch: master tracked Local branch configured for 'git pull': master merges with remote master Local ref configured for 'git push': master pushes to master (up to date)
When I push my changes to “origin master” git prints “everything up to date”, but nothing it updated in my GitHub repo.
What is going on here?
Someone is suggesting that I check thay the files were actually commited… the files were commited, I assure you.

This is the file that was updated:

Also, I can see that the local version of the file is very different to the version on GitHub, the changes are definately being added to my local repo, but are not being pushed to the remote repo.

It might be the case that you are on another branch than the master branch, then type:
git push origin HEAD:master
so git understands that you want to push up current HEAD and not the master branch.
When it says Up to date it means your local repository and your remote repository are one and the same, that is you have not made any changes to your local repo that needs to be pushed to the remote repo.
If you have indeed changed the files then you must have forgot to commit it.
If you had created new files then you must add it. To add files use
git add .
then to commit all the edited files use
git commit -am "Commit message"
git push origin master
Use this commands. Suppose test.md is the new file you created and you want to push it with the message “Testing”
$ git add test.md $ git commit -a -m "Testing" $ git push origin master
