I'm getting this up and running again. However, the first thing is getting re-acquainted with Git and Github. I used Github with some Data Science courses on Github. That's nice for the "do this, then that" of large online courses, but now I need to know enough to manage my own work. Maybe one day I'll be good enough for complex multi-developer environments.
Here are a couple of resources I used.
Here is what I did to get rolling again:
git initto get everything levelset.
git config --global user.name "joedonahoe"and
git config --global email.address "firstname.lastname@example.org"to set some variables. That's not my real email address.
git remote add origin https://github.com/joedonahoe/joedonahoe.github.io.
git add filenameand
git rm filenameto get rid of old stuff and add new stuff in the local repo.
git commit -m "2017 reboot". However, that only picked up the new file. I had to do
git commit -a -m "2017 reboot"to also pick up some other changes.
git push origin masterand my changes were visible on this site in about 90 seconds due to the magic of github.io.
