Git init | Initialize a local Git repository

The git init command creates a new Git repository in local. This is usually the first command you will run before working on a new project.

git init

# Output
Initialized empty Git repository in D:/git_new_repo/.git/

It creates a ".git" subdirectory in the current working directory. The subdirectory contains all the necessary Git metadata for the new repository.
