Hi guys. I’m just getting started with all things github, but I figured I would just dive in and see if I could swim. I made a repo, copied an existing project into that repo directory, then committed and published it. All seems fine. Files are in the repo, I can modify files in UE and then update via git, etc. However, when I try to use the in-editor git support via the new beta git plugin, I am getting the message:
Error You should check out a working copy into your project directory.
Error Project is not part of a Git working copy.
Did I do something wrong in the order I created things? I made the repo first, copied my project into that repo, committed and published the repo, and then opened the project from the repo folder. I’m also seeing an error:
Error fatal: Not a git repository: ‘"/Users/jj/Dev/gitHub/mepgencontent/.git’
Is there a version mismatch? Or possibly a “I’m on a mac” situation? The wiki tutorial doesn’t really go into this level of detail. Aside from “Turn the plugin on”, it doesn’t really cover much at all as far as the nitty gritty step by step how to. Is there a different/better “How To Use Git inside UE 4.7” tutorial out there?
