Cannot Export Project to GitHub

I cannot export my project to GitHub. It throws this error towards me- “We could not export your project to the Github repo R4356th/samplerailsapp. You don’t seem to have permission to write to this repo.” With my browser’s console, I found that Glitch sent an XHR to, which says that authentication is required which should make Glitch ask for authentication. My project is available here- // cc @glitch_support

Git is installed by default, maybe you can Push it from your Terrminal into your Project?

Thanks but then I would have to git clone my repo from GitHub.

You should still be able to push it.

You don’t need to.
Or you can create a new branch and push it into your repo, then make a Pull request.

git checkout -b nameofyourbranch
git add .
git commit -m “WIP - New Branch”
git push
(You should get a message into the Terminal with the correct command. Yeah, I’m a lazy Dev I copy/paste a lot)

Glitch does not let me type my password!

Passwords don’t show up in the terminal.

Oh, I see.

I get this error now-

To ! [rejected] master -> master (fetch first) error: failed to push some refs to '' hint: Updates were rejected because the remote contains work that you do hint: not have locally. This is usually caused by another repository pushing hint: to the same ref. You may want to first integrate the remote changes hint: (e.g., 'git pull ...') before pushing again. hint: See the 'Note about fast-forwards' in 'git push --help' for details.

Create a branch first. See the commands above

You can force the changes

git push -f origin master
