    You made one small mistake. If the user has never setup git before he/she will need to do this instead of apply the set-url:

    git remote add origin git@github.com:user/project.git

    I followed this and I am unable to see the repo, unless I create it on github.com first.

    When I create on github.com first, it provides a list of commands that I can then use for the repo:

    mkdir my-forth-git-repo
    touch README.md
    git init
    git add README.md
    git commit -m “first commit”
    git remote add origin git@github.com:username/my-forth-git-repo.git
    git push -u origin master

      If you want to start a clean and fresh project then you don’t need to follow this bunch of steps, firt create the repo on github.com and after do a git clone git@github.com:username/my-forth-git-repo.git and from here you’re under control.
