Deploying to Reclaim via Git
To be honest, this took some brain-numbing trial and error – trying to get the remote git repo on the Reclaim server to become the
_site folder on my website build locally, so that then I could build into it and have that be the actual site for deployment. I admit I am no whiz when it comes to git.
I got hung up in what was pointing where, and then I got a bunch of changes on the remote end (the Reclaim-side repo) mixed up and forgotten and I had to ssh in and reconcile all of that. Eventually I just deleted my local
_site folder and cloned the Reclaim repo into a new empty
_site folder. And now I’m up and running.
So, I now do the following:
- Edit and/or add files locally, using my text editor and markdown;
- Build and proof the site locally;
- Add and commit changes via Github Desktop;
- Push directly to my git repo on Reclaim
