Search - "owncloud"
I'm planning to switch from ownCloud to Nextcloud in the next weeks. Does anyone have experience with that or maybe some advice? Aside from creating Backups.7
Okay, I have a desktop and a laptop. I don't think that's surprising.
I do sync the contents of both via git. Also not surprising.
But I thought, hmm, I hate having to do temporary git commits. Stuff like
git add .
git commit -m temp
Just so I can remove it alter via
git reset HEAD^
I hate it because it forces me to force push. So, how do I sync stuff I do not want to commit yet?
Well, I just set up an instance of owncloud. Was easy. 20 minutes and everything is running. Can recommend. But...
For some reason it doesn't work. It syncs stuff just fine... But it also syncs my .git directory... I thought it wouldn't be a problem.
Saves me a pull. Don't have to pull what's synced, right? Also setting up new projects should be terribly simple. Just add it normally. So, git just versions and does pipelines. And I copy everything inside the git directory over.
Also allows me to have more private .git/info/exclude files and hooks...
But for some reason... everything is synced. Dot-files are being synced as well. Everything works... But running git status on one side tells me everything is commited... Doing it on the other side it tells me there are new files.
How is that possible??? I kind of expected that even a branch checkout would be synced... Was curious if that would lead to issues, but I didn't expect it just not recognizing changes. Git doesn't hold projects in memory, does it? Nah, that doesn't make any sense. So, why does git status disagree? Git log is identical... Git status is not...
It makes no bloody sense.11
