How to initialize a git repository on a directory that contains a subdirectory that has git already initialized?
I am working on a MERN application and I have created a root folder "chatapp".
Inside the root directory, there are two sub-directories:
I am using React for the frontend and react comes with git already initialized.
I want to initialize git inside my root directory which contains the client subdirectory with git already initialized.
And when I run
git init, it initialized well but when I run
git add to stage the files for commit, it brings an error: screenshot of my code editor
I need to add both the client and server files to my git repository.
Do I need to first initialize git in the server file separately then merge or how do I add both files to the staging area?
How can I add do this without seeing the error to avoid conflicts in the repository?
