Mac Leopard Theme Dev Workflow
Hi all. I’ve been using a local install on my Mac for development, working out of the /Library/WebServer/Documents/. I’ve had Apache set up with a virtual host to mimic a live site. All is fine (beyond the mess I’ve created in the config files of course).
Anyway, I’d like to improve things and work on multiple themes and sites at the same time, and make better use of the available tools (Subversion, CSSEdit, et al). At present I’m doing a lot of fumbling and file copying.
To get to the point: I’m a little creeped out by using Subversion working copies and doings lots of editing in the Library root, and think I’d be better off working from my personal Sites folder. Does that sound rational? I picture a bunch of installs inside my Sites folder, next to whatever other web things i’ve got going on.
The main problem is I don’t really know how to do it, either from an installation standpoint, or Apache setup. Do I have to make my Sites folder the document root, and lose the Library root? Any tips? TIA.
