WhatsApp New Search



WhatsApp recent update added few new features which are not noticeable but are of good use. I am going to explain one of the good feature recently added into both Android and iOS version.

So earlier versions of the WhatsApp  search only searches for the text. New Version now searches for Text, Images, Documents, Links and many more .

So when you tap on the search option, by default you can search for texts but if you want to search for Documents or Images then simply select the respective icon from the section below the textbox and search. It will search for the respective documents matching the search keyword.


For Android You will get below screen design 





For iOS, it appears as list and from that list you can select the respective search type







Gitlab Commands



When you create any project in Gitlab or Git then you can use below commands using shell/ command prompt to initialise and setup your source/version control 

First you have to to set it up the user name and login email id. Although when you create your first project in gitlab, you will see the Below commands but if you follow the instructions , you might get errors at some steps, I will provide details for those errors and how to fix those too.

Let's follow the below steps.

1. Git global setup
git config --global user.name "<Your Name>"
git config --global user.email "<your login email >"
2. Create a new repository
git clone https://gitlab.com/<user_name>/<project name>.git
cd <your local project directory>
touch README.md
git add README.md
git commit -m "add README"
git push -u origin master
3. Push an existing folder
cd existing_folder
git init
git remote add origin https://gitlab.com/<user_name>/<project name>.git
git add .
git commit -m "Initial commit"
git push -u origin master
4. Push an existing Git repository
cd existing_repo
git remote rename origin old-origin
git remote add origin https://gitlab.com/<user_name>/<project name>.git
git push -u origin --all
git push -u origin --tags
So, it might work for you always but for some Step 3 or 2 might throw below error.

remote: The project you were looking for could not be found.

fatal: repository 'https://gitlab.com/<user name>/<project name>.git/' not found



So, in order to resolve this, you need to modify the URL. You have to add your username in the domain as well . So it should look like 

https://<user_name>@gitlab.com/<user_name>/<project name>.git


So replace the project URL in step 2, 3 and 4 if it doesn't work with default one.
