We are using IntelliJ with the Illuminated Cloud plugin for Salesforce development. We have decided to use Azure DevOps git repository for our VCS. This is a fresh, empty repo and I cannot figure out how to add our code (just the 'src' folder) to the repo and get it all connected up.
I have installed the Azure DevOps plugin inside IntelliJ and I can see the repo. However, I don't know what the next step is to get my current IntelliJ / Illuminated Cloud project connected so I can perform my initial commit. What I have tried is perform an initial Clone, but this ends up creating blank project without the Illuminated Cloud "nature".
Can someone provide the high level steps I need to take to setup IntelliJ and Azure DevOps and perform my initial checkin?
