How to add a Git remote

Today I had to add a remote to a Git repository after deleting the Git remote with git remote rm origin, for reasons that I won’t bore you with.

Then I added a new Git remote to a GitHub repository with

git remote add origin [email protected]:flaviocopes/myrepo.git

Change flaviocopes/myrepo to your GitHub URL.
