I love git and GitHub, and I can certainly appreciate the usefullness of .gitignore, but there are times when I’d really like to move an ENTIRE project to a new home. I have in my head a process that might play out like this…
Credits: This document is an abstraction of some fine documentation authored and posted by my ICG colleague and friend, David Keiser-Clark. ICG Git Workflow: How to work with Git The examples in this document use my work with the Islandora Collaboration Group’s (ICG) ISLE-Drupal-Build-Tools repository, as well as my fork and local clone of that repository.
For some time now Digital.Grinnell has been using ISLE in production, with an instance that was built from a “non-standard” workflow, one that was a little different than the Git workflow established in the ISLE install docs. Consequently, DG’s situation is a little different than what’s documented for ISLE, so my mission here is to describe and execute the steps I’m taking to get back into the documented workflow.
As promised in post 037, this post combines elements of post 021 with updated post 034 to create a “customized” local ISLE instance with features of Digital.Grinnell. In this November 2019 update I’m building the repository on my MacBook ma7053 using ISLE-1.
