Git proxy for CPC?

(1/5) > >>

m_dr_m:
I'd like to update github or other (*) from my CPC.
Git is a monstrosity, so I'm thinking of a simple proxy on a equally monstrous machine (e.g. ibm pc, commodore amiga ...):



* You upload your files via ftp from the CPC.
* A server somewhere would monitor the ftp site.
* If a special file is changed (e.g. "commit.txt"), it would invoke `git commit`.
* The ftp site would be the instantaneous source of truth, yet we would have an history of changes.
What do you think?


(*) github: I'm happy with the fact that microsoft is spending money to host open-source. The downside is that you have to check the terms&condition carefully and consistently.

Poliander:
Not a big deal, but the "proxy" (more like a FTP/GIT gateway) will require push permission to the GitHub repo

Targhan:
The first step seems the biggest to me... If you're using the M4Board, this should be pretty easy actually to transfer the files to a PC, which could then trigger the commit.

m_dr_m:
I don't have any other machine but my CPC.

That's why I was considering something online. The trigger mechanism should be similar.
And that's not as big a step as you think!

Either way, that's not something I plan to do myself.
I know there are a lot of modern computing enthusiasts here, and was expecting it would interest someone doing such a thing.

Thank you for the precision. I also enjoy exactitude.
I was thinking of proxy more in the sense of:
