Terminal seems like a function that can really make a web developers life easier. I would actually like to learn more about it as it seems to cut down on the number of sites and folders one has to logon to complete a function. As I went through the GitHub Terminal tutorial, I started feeling more comfortable with the functions and was very impressed by what it can do. The one gap that still remains in my mind is:
How do I start using it to submit updates to files for my application? To create branches?
Does one logon to GitHub, or does the terminal recognize a command and automatically update the file based on the command entered?
My site is starting to look like a site, but I must admit all the changes made thus far have not required changes to code, that is next. Using the admin site to make updates has once again motivated me. Now, I just need to take my motivation to the next level and start updating code, specially moving the menu on the right side to the bottom of the page. Well not all fields only some.
My goals for this week are to update the following on my site:
– Include a Flash plugin, find someone and/or figure out how to complete an animation which I can post to my site, upload images, create a custom post.
– As far as custom posts, I will be looking into Custom Posts tonight while on my flight back to D.C and deciding if I want to use them on my site. As of right now, I think custom posts will be useful, but I need to look into them prior to making a decision.
Overall, I am so glad for the WordPress Local Site admin menu. Thank you admin menu for helping me regain some motivation.
Glad your site is progressing!
Using GitHub via command line does the same things, but just with a non-graphical user interface. Instead of clicking buttons in the GitHub for Mac GUI app, you’re typing commands. Be sure to ask about the differences between GitHub on command line and in the GUI app! This is something I want us all to discuss further.
