This is going to seem silly and I’m sure I’ll be kicking myself when someone points out the obvious solution. But, here goes…
I have a couple websites that use the same theme that’s created by someone else. He has a github public repo and he’s made the theme installable as a gem. Everything is peachy. I can use it as a remote_theme or use the gem that’s in the bundle.
Now, I want to fork the theme and do my own thing with it. Easily enough, I just point remote_theme at my own github repo and off I go. Except that’s really slooooow. It goes from 4 seconds to build up to about 45 seconds, just with the one change. I can edit the theme that’s down inside my bundle folder but that’s really ganky.
What I want to do is point the _config.yml that’s on my local machine, to the clone of what I forked and is in my own repo and on my local drive, one level above my website project.
So, instead of
I want to use
Only that second one doesn’t work for me.
Please point out that I’m an idiot and show me the correct way to do this. Eventually, I’ll point the config to my repo as a remote theme, but I’m in the design/build phase right now and those builds are killing me.
