Based on reading everyone’s replies (thanks, y’all!), I’ve got this going now:
Downloaded the ChoiceScript repository. Made a named-after-the-game directory in the
web directory there that was a copy of
I then put the
scenes directory of my named-after-the-game directory under version control with git and pushed it up to my personal Github account. It’s public, and ostensibly people will see it before it’s “done”, but whatever.
I then set up a copy of the named-after-the-game directory in a public Dropbox folder for demo/sharing. And I wrote the following
cp $1 /home/ben/Dropbox/Public/choicescript/named-after-the-game/scenes/ && echo "moved $1 to Dropbox."
For those of you not super familiar with bash, this script works by running
./deploy filename.txt and it copies
filename.txt to the public folder, then outputs a message that tells me it did it.
For testing, I’ll probably just point Firefox locally. Or maybe I’ll play with setting up a super simple web server locally that hist hosts the
index.html file… If I do that, I’ll report back and share the code for it.
