Week 2: Git and HTML5 Apps – Part 1

Unit 2 – Creating a Hello World HTML5 Application

This unit shows how to create a simple Hello World HTML5 applications on the platform.

Common issues

Error after commit and push

Most likely you confirgured a wrong email adress or name in your git settings. Make sure hat you use the email adress which is assigned to your SCN user (SAP ID). To correct this got to the git configuration settings in eclipse   (Windows –> Preferences, search for git) and correct to email adress and name.

As you have already created a commit, you must also fix the email adress in the commit: Go to the “Git Staging” view and press the “Ammend previous commit” Button. Now you can fix author and commit name. It should be in the format “firstname lastname <email>”. Now press “Commit and Push”.

Unit 3 – Git Basics

In this unit Git is introduced and you get some basics around the usage of Git.

Unit 4 – Using SAPUI5 in Your HTML5 Application

With this unit you get an introduction to SAPUI5. In an exercise the initial application is improved.

    I keep getting the email address miss match no matter what email I put in the GIT Config. It says the case is not the same, even though i used the same case. Below is the error. I changed the email address, but its basically complaining about the Caps in the first and last name. I tried both combinations and its still complaining the same error. Can you please help me with this issue.

      To add to it, when I created a new app everything worked fine. It looks like one of my old commits in the old project has an invalid email address. If i use "Amend Previous Comment", it doesn't lets me go to the initial commit. It goes to just one previous one.
