ssh email@example.comRun the latest package update and upgrades, just to make sure everything is current.
sudo apt-get updateThen the upgrade:
sudo apt-get upgradeThen reboot:
sudo apt-get install wget git-coreYou'll see terminal output. In this case, the packages were already installed (maybe with the update/upgrade from last step), but you see some sort of success at this point.
ssh firstname.lastname@example.orgWhat we then type in;
mkdir usbdrvWhat we are going to set up is a mount point — a way to always map this directory to the USB drive.
sudo blkidcheck out output — we are looking for the USB drive device info, which is easy to identify because we called it GITPI when we initialized it.
sudo nano /etc/fstabHere is the tricky part. We are going to modify the fstab file so that this device maps to the usbdrv directory.
nano usbdrv/test.txtThis will create a text file in the usbdrv directory — which is actually the USB thumb drive itself called test.txt. Put some text in the file, like mine pictured here.
ls usbdrvAnd you'll see a lone file, test.txt.
cd /Users/scottkildall/PythonScripts/justdiedbot git initNow, do a similar thing on your Raspberry Pi. In a second Terminal window, ssh back into the Pi. We are going to create a directory called justdiedbot and initialize it with Git. Once again, substitute your source directory names rather than using mine.
mkdir usbdrv/justdiedbot.git cd usbdrv/justdiedbot.git git init --bareThis creates a new directory with a .git extension and an empty Git repository. For the geeks in the audience, here is a detailed discussion of what the --bare flag does.
Note: some readers of this Instructable have reported that you need to call "sudo" before the git init steps, so if you have permissions errors, type in: "sudo git init"
cd /Users/scottkildall/PythonScripts/justdiedbotOf course, you should type in your local directory path. One trick with the Finder is that you can drag-and-drop the folder to complete the path, typing in 'cd ' and then drag the folder into the Terminal window.
git remote add pi email@example.com:/home/pi/usbdrv/justdiedbot.gitYou only have to add the remote one time. From here on out, we will refer to this remote as pi.
git add . git commit -m "initial commit" git push pi masterThis will add all the files in the justdiedbot directory, commit the adds with the message, then push them onto your GitPi.
That's a pro feature!
