How do folks use with sites and deploy? I'm thinking I will create a gitignore so only necessary files are tracked, then use DeployHQ to deploy from GitHub to the server. Is this a good way?

@Pawper I guess it depends on how DIY you want to handle things - you could always use GitHub actions to CICD it and deploy to a server via rsync/SSH on release if you don't mind having SSH details for the server stored in GitHub secrets. css-tricks.com/continuous-depl is a reasonable example of that approach.

@darkliquid Thanks, this guide seems like it will help a lot. One pro of GitHub actions is that my client doesn't have to go and make a DeployHQ account and manage another login. I'll just have to figure out how to set up rsync for the root "public" directory instead of a theme directory. However I don't think it will be too challenging to set that up.
