Here’s a quick look at using Git and Markdown. Git, in short, is a version control system that’s meant for handy tracking of changes and work coordination. Markdown is a markup language with plain text formatting syntax. It is designed so that it can be converted to HTML and many other formats using a tool by the same name. In the following task, I’ll use both of these in a brief fashion.

Using Github for SaltStack states
In an earlier task I made a repository on my Github account, called “school“. In this, I placed a “high.sh” file that included a local saltstack state.highstate command, to be executed with bash. The top file uses a state that creates an empty text file. I wanted to clone the repository to my virtual PC, so I used the command “sudo apt-get install -y git” and “git clone https://github.com/oliverlahti/school” to install Git and clone my repository:
After the successful cloning, I executed the top file with “sudo bash high.sh“. The creation of the text file went perfect:
Using repositories with Git is really easy, as you can see!
