I’m just learning git and knowing its possibilities while working in a team. In this way, I can understand that Commit Glyphs works with a folder set as a git repo but I don’t know exactly how a workflow should go. Anyone could help me in this issue? Maybe just a little example.
Let me jump in with you! I too have questions!
I was tried using SourceTree to keep versions of one of my typeface projects.
It mostly worked but I had some problems with reversing commits where the data didn’t know where to go and some glyphs got messed up.
I’d like to hear more on this issue.
Wish somebody could do a workshop on Git for type designers, starting from the very basics (what does ‘push’ mean? where should I put my repo? Why would I want to ‘fork’ or ‘clone’ something?) It’s so easy to get in a muddle.
EDIT: Also, what are the differences between Git clients, and which is best for type design? How to set up and manage projects where several people want to collaborate?
As @mekkablue recently replied when we were talking about this, I think, a properly written tutorial would be great (maybe even instead of a workshop). I would offer my help, if this can still wait a little (like late mid 2018) …
Ha, yes. It would need to be a really well-written tutorial. I don’t normally find tutorials a good way to learn, I’d rather try stuff out and have someone tell me what I’m doing wrong and answer specific questions as I go. A tutorial doesn’t usually allow those. But people have different learning styles so maybe most other people would find a written tutorial perfect.
I’m trying to learn how to use it through a test project by myself. The only point I don’t get quite well is 4. How do you decide if you want to use right or left side? Find attached a screenshot of my interface to see there’s no chance to select the old design (right). I’m probably missing something.
