Git and flywheel local


can someone suggest a simple work flow for flywheel with git. Using Kraken I’ve pulled files to my machine (with db), then read that I had to import the site to flywheel by zipping up the wp-content and sql file. But then this creates a copy of the site outside of the one pulled from the repo… so I can’t push changes. I’ll like to stick to using a GUI for git if poss… any tips / ideas?
