Using Github to Manage Git Repositories (Part 1)

For a long time, I was content to manage git respoitories myself (you can see earlier articles in this blog to see how I accomplished that). More and more, however, I liked the idea of my remote repositories using a more client-server model. To that end, I created an account for myself on Github. If you want to have private repositories, there is a monthly cost.

Deploy an Application to the Remote Server

With Git prepared on both the local workstation and on the remote server, I can now deploy my application.

Install and Use Git Locally

Git is a powerful, flexible version control simple, one I find more intuitive than Subversion. Once again, I use MacPorts to install Git, and then I supply some global configuration settings.
