FSTP vs. GitHub, from localhost to droplet

It seems like most of the tutorials encourage hosting your source code in a 3rd party repository (github.com) and then bicker about the best way to hide your keys.. I'm just wondering why this is preferable to bypassing the repository and just fstp the entire project from localhost to droplet?

  • If you are working on your own project, and manage your own versions, then using sFTP will work fine.

    You could even write your own little script that will rsync your project every so often..
