## Step 0. Make sure you have GitHub client installed

Open the terminal

$sudo ./install.sh  and you will get message that the extension initialized ## Step 4. Add Git LFS hooks to the repository In your repository direcotry, run $git lfs install


You’ll need to run this in your repository directory, once per repository.

## How to use Git LFS

Git LFS can be used when you want to version large files, usually, valuable output data, which is larger than Github limit (100Mb). These files can be plain text or binaries.

ARFC Git Large File Storage is quite large, but be respectful to your colleagues and make sure you store only valuable data of reasonable (100Mb-5Gb) size. Consider using alternative storage options such as Box if version control is not necessary or if files of a larger size need to be stored.

To version large files in your repository:

1. Select the file types you would like Git LFS to manage (i.e., Serpent ouput files has extension .m)

git lfs track "*.m"


Make sure .gitattributes is tracked

git add .gitattributes


You can always check tracked file types

vi .gitattributes


Do it from the top level directory of the repository.

2. Success! Just commit and push to GitHub as you normally would

git add ubattery_dep.m
git commit -am "Add isotopic composition after depletion"
git push origin master
