Git: writing data form repository
I am new to git and I have installed a client on two computers and I am able to manage changes to the git repository from either computer. I see the diffs and I am happy so far. I have a website that we manage the data through git but my question has to do with writing the data from the git repository back to public_html. Can I write the data from the git to public_html using git or do I have to write a bash script myself that will do that?

I don't really understand your question. public_html can be a git repository if you want. Then you can either push to it from other repositories, or pull to it from another repository.

You are correct but the git repository is not in public_html. They are separate and I need to copy the data to public_html once its committed.
Does git have a command to do that?

You'll probably need to write a script to do it.

Is it a good idea to have the git repository be at the same place as the public_html?
