As I understand it, you are creating a project on your local drive, and cloning that up to dropbox. Then you are setting the dropbox copy as absolute master. I think I have that part.

do I have the next stuff figured out correctly?

Now you go to work, and use local computer A.
–do you have to erase your old local copy of the project before you “clone ~/Dropbox/Repositories/myNewProject.git” ??

–You do one hour of work using the local computer A copy. You want to commit a round of upgrades back to the master at dropbox. Exactly what Git commands do you use?

git status / git diff / git add (as appropriate) and git commit will only affect the local computer A, no? How do you ‘commit’ to the dropbox master?

git commit origin master ?? or is it git push origin master ??

Many thanks, zip.

If a lot of people working on dropbox, it’s probably a better solution to come up with a real git server.@viralpatel: Thanks. Good article!

This propagated to all of my computers. Thankfully, I was able to hunt most of them down and use Dropbox’s restore option, but I still find 1 or 2 files I missed every now and then.
