GitHub, Git-LFS and The Five Basic Object-Oriented (SOLID Principles) for Designing Software

I wish I would have utilized GitHub and Git-lfs sooner… its simply a must have for your projects and even better if you are getting help from others to contribute to your project.

In your root folder type in:

git lfs install

an example to track psd files would be:
git lfs track “*.psd”


git add .gitattributes

My .gitattributes:

# Auto detect text files and perform LF normalization
* text=auto

*.meta -text -merge=unityamlmerge

vis asked in FishNet’s Discord regarding guides on advanced-ish game architecture as his code was starting to bite his ass… & a user named rev shared this link on The Five Basic Object-Oriented (SOLID Principles) for Designing Software  – it’s definitely worth checking out!
