How we use Glitch, GitHub, & Vercel to collaborate remotely
Possible Intro: (for twitter or a post?)
Over the past few months our team has been working interdependently and remotely on some web project which we are going to share soon but in the mean time I wanted to share a bit about our current pipeline.
Glitch for development → GitHub for version control → Vercel for hosting or Render for hosting
Updating and publishing projects: #
Here is an overview on how we publish content remotely with each other through using Glitch for development, Github for version control, and Zeit for hosting.
Head to Glitch and make any edits to the project.
Once edits are complete click
toolsbutton and then select
Git, Import and Export.
If you see
Connect to Githubbutton then click it if not select
Export to GitHub.
Next enter the GitHub-account/repo-name you would like to push to in the popup and click
Enter a detailed decrition of what you are pushing. for example "Updated SEO with new branding" and click
Now head on over to your GitHub repo and click Compare & pull request. If you do not see this try pushing again from Glitch.
Add additional comments and click
Create pull request.
Next now.sh will check the code and if everything looks ✅ then you can click
Merge pull requestto push the changes to now.sh and the production or live build.
You will be asked to confirm the merge.
Thats it! 🎉 Now just wait for your update to go live. If you what to check the progress head on over to your Zeit Dashboard and click on the project to see the status of the lates build.
