Git Command Line
We strongly recommend the use of the SSH protocol with git. The HTTP protocol can be used, but it will require setting a separate password in GitLab. Use of the HTTP protocol is discouraged and may be disabled at some point in the future.
code.vt.edu is a shared resource, so please be wary of creating large repositories. Project sizes can vary greatly, so we are being intentionally vague about the definition of "large". If you have doubts, feel free to ask.
