Hi all, I'd be curious to hear from anyone who uses Git for version tracking of their Pd projects. I'm a Git noob... just getting started with setting up a local Git repo on my computer (no need for Github in my case), and I have a couple of questions:
-Is there any risk of Git causing issues if I run my Pd patches directly from a Git repo? Is it better to use a separate development repo/directory & then copy the latest version to a separate, non-tracked directory for actual Pd use in concert?
-Is there a way in Git to associate evolving versions of all dependencies in various locations? In my case:
- Pd performance patch directory (with subdirectories containing abstractions)
- ~/Library/Pd (my externals directory)
I suppose I could create a new repo, copy all of my files into it to begin version control, do all of my development there, and then copy/overwrite all files back to their original locations when I want to move from development to performance, but there's got to be a better/safer/neater way to do it all without shuffling files all over the place manually.
