AltME: Web

I am new to Git. I'd like to use it (or something similar) to keep a distributed copy of a web app I am developing. I'd like copies on two local systems (laptop and desktop) with the possibility of sharing with another developer based far away and deploying the app on my web host.
I sort of get the concept (at least the part about commits, etc), but am not really sure how to keep everything in sync. Is it worth using a hosting service like GitHub or Bitbucket (I know that perhaps defeats the purpose) to assure availability or figuring out how to use the web host for this purpose?
Kaj
You may want to try Fossil. It's much easier to run your own server
Andreas
To "keep everything in sync" with Git, you have have to do pairwise syncs. Each pairwise sync can be initiated from either side, the respective commands being "fetch" (from remote to local) and "push" (from local to remote).
If you want to keep many separate sites in sync, mediating the sync via a central host makes sense (as it avoids the exponential explosion of pairwise syncs).
If you have SSH access to your web host, using your web host for a central Git repository is trivial (assuming you have - or can get - Git installed on the web host).
Chris
In this one case, the host has instructions to set up Git on a subdomain. I'd have to consider it as it doesn't appear to be private.
Thanks Kaj, will look it over...

I'm trying out BitBucket with Git for now, the control over who can update being for now the deciding factor.  I have the following setup in mind:

(sorry, bit of a crude sketch)
It's entirely probable that I'm using it naively and/or inefficiently, but so far I have the ME and BITBUCKET parts working just as I would have hoped. I'm pretty sure there's a million intricate parts to learn, but feel this is a good start. Am I overlooking anything obvious?
If I set up the link to the web host from the ME area, does that become available to the collaborator? (don't want it to)
Andreas
Looks like a sensible setup.
No, if you link from ME to HOST, that doesn't become available to COLLABORATOR.

Cool

Does anyone know how I can pre-process an Apache2 configuration and store it in a single file?
NickA
No, but don't try to use any GPL licenced tools to do it ... (ba dump bump)
(or something like that)
Gregg
Not sure exactly what you mean Robert. I've written tools to generate Apache configs, if that's along the lines of what you're doing.

To start some new discussions, 1) I like Squeak/Pharo Smalltalk's AIDA/Seaside systems. Hope to to practice them in realworld soon (creating a community site)... 2) I'm coding a new Oberon system  which will be able to do one of the following at once: a) interpret oberon b) translate oberon to x86 machine code c) translate oberon to javascript. This is a very long-term project, but I get excellent support from the oberoncore.ru community, and am actually making good progress. Current oberon project status is c++ sourcecode-based ssystem interprets oberon, interpreter has many temporary stubs.
The license for oberon project is GPLv3 or later.

has anyone tried to "signup with google" at rebol based web-app?
Janko
they find vulnerabilities in various oauth(2)/openid implementations that are used by many people, so writing my own to use it in production doesn't sound so good. writing for the receiving end of openid is simpler, but still.

Robert
Does anyone has a tip for a cheap service like: chartbeat.com, gosquared.com etc.?
Josh
Robert, the only thing I've ever seen is https://www.kissmetrics.com/  not sure if it fits what your idea of cheap is
Wait, guess it's more expensive.  Misread the pricing
