You have a local repository. Let's say you cloned this repo from a remote source, but now you forked it somewhere else and you want to push a commit or two to the forked one. How can you do that?
First of all, verify your remotes:
git remote -v
You should see something like this:
origin https://github.com/exoticorn/exoquant-rs (fetch) origin https://github.com/exoticorn/exoquant-rs (push)
origin is the shortcut-name that we give to the URL on the right side, so it's the default remote repository. How can we change it? Really simple:
git remote set-url origin <new-remote-url>
If the URL of the forked repo is this one `https://github.com/gicrisf/exoquant-rs`, you should pass it to the command like this:
git remote set-url origin https://github.com/gicrisf/exoquant-rs
Very good! Now, you could launch `git remote -v` again and see the changes:
origin https://github.com/gicrisf/exoquant-rs (fetch) origin https://github.com/gicrisf/exoquant-rs (push)
Well done, now you can push every change you want on your own fork without messing with the code of anybody else.
