Collaboration Notes

The Git and Docker repos contain all the configuration for deployment to AWS.
Google Drive or Dropbox can be used to synchronize files across multiple devices.
Use AWS IAM to assign user permissions and create keys for each collaborator.
Collaborators are required to install dependencies on their local device.
Repo should be FORKED by collaborators so reality is controlled by one admin.
New dependencies should be added to the Dockerfile, NOT to the repo files.
Collaborators should test changes to Dockerfile locally before merging to remote:

docker build -t test-image .

.gitignore and .dockerignore have already been installed in key locations.
To prevent unintended file proliferation through version control & provisioning,
add/edit .gitignore and .dockerignore to include all new:

  1. local environments folders
  2. localhost dependencies
  3. configuration files with credentials and local variables
