Create a remote repo from Merge?


I just downloaded Sublime Merge to give a test run. I am trying to create a new remote repo directly from Merge. Is that possible?



Merge is essentially a GUI wrapper on git; anything you do in Merge that makes any sort of change to the contents of the repository actually executes git to perform the job. There’s also not (yet, anyway) tight integration with services like GitHub, GitLab, etc that may have some programmatic way to initialize a repository remotely.

So currently the answer to this is no, unless you can craft a git command that will do this for you, since Merge can be configured to execute any arbitrary git command you like.

In that regard I think there is something floating around on the forum that does something like this to integrate better using for example the github command line client, though I can’t find it at the moment.
