You definitely do not want a commit every time you save your file. Just commit when you reach a milestone, etc.
Good deal. I'm still experimenting with that. Some of my projects a single line, or word, change is a major milestone. But it looks like I'll be manually committing to git and relying on TextWranglers autobackup on save feature for smaller changes. There seems to be a fine line there somewhere, and a huge gap between my vision and ability—but it's getting smaller Also, have you looked into using a online document hosting service like GoogleDocs. I presume you need to use advanced editing features that are available part of Word or some other thick client tool. Does GoogleDocs handle git repositories? Or are you suggesting an alternative to using git? No, I don't use or need word-processors. I have a raw text workflow. I mainly use TextWrangler and vim; writing in MultiMarkdown or other lightweight markup languages. For rendered text I run it through Mmd or Pandoc. I'm growing more accustomed to LaTex and hope to use it more in the future. Once I have my workflow down I'm going to install git on my webhosting service or seek out a semi-privite hosted repository. I would like to allow people to browse my changes or not to alter content.
