Some time ago I decided it was time to change from subversion to git for my version control system. The advantages where obvious. git is distributed and so I can code on my laptop without being connected to my home server. When I do get home I just sync the repositories and everything’s OK.
But, how to do this. I took the easy road and created an user on my home server and made sure I could login with SSH key authentication. After that I did:
ssh git@server mkdir ~/repos cd ~/repos mkdir <new repo> cd <new repo> git --bare init git config gitweb.owner "Ton Kersten" git config gitweb.description "Description of this repo"
Edit the file
~/repos/<new repo>/description and add a descriptive text for
On the develop client the next mantra is used:
mkdir <new repo> cd <new repo> git init git remote add server ssh://git@server/home/git/repos/<new repo> git config gitweb.owner "Ton Kersten" git config gitweb.description "Description of this repo"
Place a nice description in the file
Also create a global git configuration file with the commands
git config --global user.name "Ton Kersten" git config --global user.email "Weblog_at_TonKersten.com"
Now it’s time to code your fingers to the bone.
After testing, recoding and testing it’s time to commit all changes:
git commit -a
and after getting home:
git push server master
