I'm going to develop a website using Wordpress with a colleague. How can we manage it so that we can develop it together at the same time? I heard git is not right for Wordpress
Git is definitely a valuable tool for collaborative WordPress development. Have a look at some talks on WordPress.tv about using Git: http://wordpress.tv/?s=git
- Use an automated deployment method (running your own, or using an off-the-shelf service). There are many deployment tools that interface with Git/Github.
- Use Travis CI to automatically test if your commits break anything.
- Make use of branches to work on several issues - every issue can be a git branch.
Go with http://bitbucket.org for private project works at free of cost. Which is limited with team members.
It has * issues tracker * hip-hop chat * wiki * branches and commits.
You can use
Source Tree to manage your git's. You can create public and private git's.
I hope for the private projects. instead of github, i prefer bitbucket.
If you work on WordPress in the recommended manner, I.e. creating templates or extending existing ones with self-contained custom functions, then you'll only need to check-in the
wp-content/themes/yourthemename directory into Git, not the whole WordPress installation. It should then be easy to collaborate on.
