That's cool! I did not see any special setup in
https://github.com/bradp/wpeagles ... Do you happen to have a GitHub
repo with an an example of the theme submodule/symlink setup?
Or, if it's easier and/or not too much trouble, maybe you could
type-out how you have your setups for theme dev?
For example, here's my current setup (like WordPress-Skeleton):
| \--- ???
+---wp (WordPress submodule)
In the above, I've put "???" where I'm curious to learn about the
details of your setup.
For example, on your local machine, I assume you just add a simple
symlink to the theme repository? How do you handle the symlinks on a
production machine? Where do you put the theme
folders/repositories/submodules on production?
Sorry if dumb questions, I'm just trying to get a sense of how folks
like to develop themes using VC (whilst VCing everything else). :)
Thanks Brad!!! I really appreciate the help.
