Starting out with yadm should be just a few easy steps.
If you don’t currently have a repository
Start out with an empty local repository
yadm init yadm add <important file> yadm commit
Eventually you will want to push the local repo to a remote.
yadm remote add origin <url> yadm push -u origin master
If you have an existing remote repository
Clone your existing repo using yadm.
yadm clone <url> yadm status
clone command will attempt to
merge your existing repository, but if it fails, it will
stash any conflicting data. See this question in the FAQ if you need help.
That’s all it takes to start. Now most Git commands can be used as
yadm <git command>. Read about common commands for ideas.
