Importing project from computer to GitHub repository
Tried to find this but did not find any straightforward way to do it.
I am trying to import project from my computer to GitHub repository. Repository is already created by sysadmin and its currently empty.
I know there is another way that I can clone the repository to my computer then copy my project folder to that folder and then commit push. but this approach will require me to change project location in eclipse also by again importing project from the new location.
I don’t want that. Is there an easy way I can just push the project to the repository from my current location on my computer.

From the Github documentation:
Push an existing Git repository >cd [existing_git_repo on your computer] >git remote add origin email@example.com/[username]/[project_name].git >git push -u origin master
Note that it does need to be an empty project in Github without having to do any conflict resolutions.

$ git init

$ git add .
This adds the files in the local repository and stages them for commit
Commit the files that you’ve staged in your local repository.
$ git commit -m 'First commit'
