Getting started with Bitbucket/Github

Recommended Posts

Finally getting to a stage where I am looking to move to a BS 2.3.4 site and thought this was a perfect time to try and learn Gihub/Bitbucket.

 

I see there are some videos at http://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/396152-bootstrap-3-in-2334-responsive-from-the-get-go/?p=1709648that I will be looking at.

 

But for development and edits of my own on my site. What is the best way to integrate with GitHub or in my case Bitbucket-which integrates with Github?! (as I can't afford to pay for private Github at the moment and going forward)

 

I use Dreamweaver CS4, what sort of software on Windows 7 can I use to auto update my Bitbucket repositary and then pull in BS 2.3.4 changes when I want.

 

Just looking for some pointers on getting into version control for my own changes rather than the master for the moment. Thanks

You can fork the 234bootstrap version in Github and then pretty much do what you want.

 

There are several users in Github that have been doing their thing with 234bootstrap in various ways.  If you take a look you can see what their approach is:

https://github.com/crazy-colorado

 

https://github.com/BrockleyJohn

 

to name a few


I am not a professional webmaster or PHP coder by background or training but I will try to help as best I can.

I remember what it was like when I first started with osC. It can be overwhelming.

However, I strongly recommend considering hiring a professional for extensive site modifications, site cleaning, etc.

There are several good pros here on osCommerce. Look around, you'll figure out who they are.

Thanks altoid,

 

Just looking at the easiest way to make my changes and add contributions on my PC and then update my fork. ie. Softwar setup in Windows.

 

From an outside view, the commit, push, add etc all seems alot of faff to change files to me. But understand the convinience and positives of it.

@@fleeced Look into the Sourcetree app for Github work. Simplifies things much as far as push, pull, commit, etc.
