Sharing Projects on home Network

Posted 13 July 2010 - 08:03 PM

So - I wasn't exactly sure where this topic would fall

either way I'll try to be as brief as possible

I believe I am looking for a program much like Microsofts Groove but I am sure I cant afford such yet...

Ya see, as I work on websites on one computer I want to be able to share the files with my other computer (so I am not backtracking coding updates all the time) without it being directly in Public folder. This is to protect my files from being messed up by a wife is isnt computer literate or kids who are just learning how and where to click.

What are your takes on this? I am open to many and any suggestions

Thanks

I would check out a source control solution, such as SVN. You can check out something like XP-Dev which offers free SVN hosting solutions

From everything I can tell this DropBox is great - and they have a nice video too lol

Although, I am looking for stuff not on a internet server I dont know... I would rather work off my own hosting service but that seems like it would be just as much trouble as using my public folder..or feel the way I do about it

I'll second the DropBox recommendation. If you're using git or mercurial for version control then you can set up a bare repository on DropBox.

There are also plenty of places that will host repositories like github (git) and bitbucket (mercurial).

If you aren't adverse to physically carrying bits between computers that are networked together you can buy a portable hard drive or flash drive. I got a 32gb flash drive from BestBuy for around $80 which makes a nice sneakernet.

FTP, git, Dropbox, SSH. No hosting is required for git if you want to just share on your home network.

Your shared folder full of projects should be accessabile to your log-on only.
Your family can't mess up what they don't have access to.
Just don't give their log-ons access permissions to those folders.
