Git for books

By Ev Bogue - August 3rd 2016

For the past four years I've experimented with using Git for books.

Right now I have all of my books in a private Git repo that I push/pull from my server. I write chapters in markdown. Then I use Metalsmith to render the source files into a website. I use Metalsmith collections to seperate each individual book into it's own collection, and still render all at the same time -- making it easy to change the design of all of my books on command. When someone buys my book they are sent a secret link that gives them access to the book.

The end result is a digital book:
