I produce outputs which I do not need to have on my computer, but I would like them to be uploaded to GitHub. How can I save my files like this?

One potential way to automatically upload files to GitHub is to include "git" commands within the scripts generating the output files to automate the process of committing and pushing these files to your git repository.
To do so, the script would need to run within a directory which has been set up to use Git source control and linked to the desired GitHub repository. If this has not already been done, it can be accomplished by right-clicking in the "Current Folder" browser and selecting "Source Control > Manage Files..." and then following the prompts.
Then, in the desired script, you will add the "git" commands needed to upload the generated files. As MATLAB does not have built-in "git" commands, you will need to use the "!" symbol to instruct MATLAB to run them as operating system commands. For example, if you generate the file "file1.m" and want to upload it to the GitHub repository, you could add the following commands:
!git add file1.m
!git commit -m "added file1.m"
!git push
