Once you have your Octopress blog in place, you might wonder how you start contributing from another computer; either yours or a friends.
You need to setup Octopress for each computer but not from scratch. Clone your repo, switch to the source branch, then manually set up a
_deploy folder and bind it to the master branch.
Setting Up an Existing Octopress Blog
$ git clone email@example.com:usr/usr.github.com.git $ cd usr.github.com $ git checkout source $ mkdir _deploy $ cd _deploy $ git init $ git remote add origin firstname.lastname@example.org:usr/usr.github.com.git $ git pull origin master
All done. Courtesy of code.dblock.org
