I have a question in regards to keeping the content doc always up to date.
Currently, my dev setup involves me working on a site locally, linking it to a git repo and pushing up any changes.
When it times for the site to go live, I ssh into the server and perform a git pull. Everything works.
My issue now is that after a few months and the client has gone into their panel and made many content changes, He wants me to do some updates. Currently i’ve been ftp’ing into the server, copying his updated content doc and replacing my local one with it.
This is a fine method but very tedious. Another solution was to gitignore the content folder and link the folder to a unique repo either as part of a project or a submodule. So when it was time to download the clients latest content doc I would ssh into the server and git push inside the content doc.
Right now, I am using gitlabs and their structure is a little different ,you cant have repos inside repos so my content doc repo inside doesn’t work anymore.
Im just looking for ideas/solutions on how others do it .
Sorry for the long read,
