my workspace is set to d:\projects. I'm creating a brand new project from scratch. now, I'm a bit confused with the terms repository and local repository. when I make a new repository (d:\repo) under git menu in indigo, does that mean I'm making repository or local repository? if d:\repo is repository, does that mean d:\projects is local repository? does repository always have to be in the cloud?
Actually, this is a "git" question more than an IDE question.
Speaking from a position of general ignorance, I suspect that you can create a git repository locally and attach to a git repository remotely. Or, more precisely, sometimes more than one of either or each type of repository.
You may discover that the primary difference other than that is that you'd specify an Internet URL (http, https) for the remote repos, but use a simple file path (or the "file:///" URL format) for the local repos.
An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
