git add . uses the actual path where you're (incase is a git repo). How would I do for using
git commit and
git push' outside of the working dir? Likegit add /Users/zad0xsis/my-git-repo`.
Can this be achieved?

I had success using the
git -C option. Taken from the Git documentation:
Run as if git was started in <path> instead of the current working directory.
It is very important that the
-C option comes before actual command you want to execute:
Wrong: git add . -C some-path Correct: git -C some-path add .
According to the git docs on my system (git 1.7.6) you can adjust the working directory (where the code resides) using
$GIT_WORK_TREE and the repository directory (where the git objects reside) using
$GIT_DIR. If that doesn't work you could use a wrapper script, e.g.
#!/bin/bash cd /desired/path git "$@"
