I'm working on a site for a large organization where they host a git repository for the code. But that doesn’t include a copy of Drupal (the core). Their repo has modules and themes directories, files directory, and a few other script files.
So for development I have another completely separate local copy of the site running. What I’m going to run into is -
- develop in my local code, then
- try to remember what files I changed & copy them over to the repository..
- add, commit & push to develop branch
Is there some magical way that I can install Drupal in a directory outside the repository, but for the theme and contributed modules, point to the directories in the repository?
This is on a Mac.
