How Chris Coyier does his best work with Local and Flywheel

flywheelLocal and Flywheel work flawlessly together when pushing and pulling site changes. In Chris Coyier’s own words, it’s “Local development that just works.”

Chris was already using the #1 free WordPress development tool, Local, so when it came time to choose a new hosting provider, he wanted a host he could trust to take care of his sites. He quickly found that by partnering with Flywheel.

QA – I’m having a problem changing DNS on GoDaddy.

I’m moving a client from GoDaddy hosting (GD is still registrar). More than 1hr ago, I changed the DNS to point to the IP at the new host with 1hr TTL. When I check DNS propagation, I see the new IP, but on one online checker, I see 3 IPs–the new one plus 2 owned by GoDaddy that appear nowhere in the DNS. The old website is still appearing although email is working through the new host.

I suspect GD is caching something at those 2 IP addresses, but Googling didn’t turn up anything on how to get rid of them or to clear the cache. What’s my best course of action?

Searching in GitHub

Although you weren’t around for the events that led to the sidebar’s implementation, many of those events live on in the project’s history. Searching the project’s repository for “sidebar” will give you a starting point.

There are two search methods available on GitHub: the global search at the top of the page and the scoped search available on certain repository tabs. They support the same syntax and function in the same way, with some key differences.

The search results are comprehensive, and include everything from code to issues to the Marketplace and even users. This is the best way to find mentions of key terms across multiple result types and repositories.

Global search

The global search enables you to use the complete search syntax to search across all of GitHub.

In our scenario, using the global search scoped to the current repository is a good way to find code and commits that mention the term “sidebar”. You will also likely get hits for issues and pull requests, although they’re not as easy to filter further in the global search results view.

What should I pay attention to when choosing a hosting provider?

Page speed – Compare the page’s speed before you decide to select a specific hosting offer. It will be up to them to charge the page. Keep in mind that the vast majority of Internet users leave the page if they don’t see its content within the first seconds.
Backups – To make sure you don’t lose your data, backups should be performed automatically as often as possible. Check how often the data is backed up and how long a single copy is available onRead more
