Godot and Git (part 8): Git LFS and dealing with large assets

Submitted by David Snopek on Sunday, 2020-11-29 @ 10:43pm

This tutorial is part of the Godot and Git course. See the if you haven't already!

In this part, we talk about Git LFS and managing large assets in Git, why Git is (normally) bad at it, and step-by-step instructions on how to use Git LFS to make it better.

This course covers BOTH the command-line and GUI for using Git, although, in this part we will only look at command-line, for two reasons (1) Git LFS's special commands only work from the command-line, but also (2) in order to save time: the other commands we run are the same as in previous parts, where we already covered how to do them in the GUI.

This video is meant for absolute beginners who have gone through the previous parts, but otherwise don't have any previous experience with Git (or other version control systems).
