Getting Started with a New Project: Clone a Git repository

In the header, next to the Project Selector, a dropdown menu appears whenever Monokle Desktop detects the current project has a Git repository.

Git Panel

Git Panel

In the left menu of Monokle Desktop, there is a dedicated Git panel.

This panel contains the Changelist which is grouped into two lists: Staged and Unstaged files. By clicking on each file, you will immediately see the differences between the old version and the newer, modified version with valuable insight as you work to achieve your desired state.

Using the checkboxes, select multiple files to apply the same action at once. After staging some of the files, you can commit the changes directly via Monokle Desktop. Once staged changes have been committed, unpublished branches can be directly published to remote through Monokle Desktop simply push your commits.
