Use Dropbox, OneDrive, or any other sync tool as storage for your git repros

You do not need to run a git server to share a git repository between different stations.
I like to separate strage & sync from the version control. You might see the advantage if you migrate from svn to git.


You only need 4 steps to create a Dropbox or OneDrive [insert your storage provider here] synced git repro:

  1. Create git repro

    git init --bare ~/OneDrive/gits/wlanrepo.git


  2. Add git to your project (the project should not be on your Dropbox/Onedrive)
    Code:
    cd ~/projects/sites/wlanboy
    git init
    git add --all
    git commit -m “Initial commit of project wlanboy"

  3. Add the git repro as remote
    Code:
    git remote add origin ~/OneDrive/gits/wlanrepo.git

  4. Push everything to your remote repro
    Code:
    cd ~/projects/sites/wlanboy
    git push --set-upstream origin master


Done.


Try a "git log" and you will see that everything git-like is working.
