Fortunately, software engineers have already developed software to manage these issues: version control. Pro Git. Generating SSH Keys. SSH keys are a way to identify trusted computers, without involving passwords.

Generating SSH Keys

The steps below will walk you through generating an SSH key and adding the public key to your GitHub account. Git add * (asterisk) vs git add . (period) Difference between git add -A and git add . The Second Pull Request Could be (Much) Better. When considering pull requests on Github, we need to keep in mind that even if someone’s first pull request is not 100% perfect, his/her second one could be much better (if he/she is willing to continue the contribution).

The Second Pull Request Could be (Much) Better

I have observed this phenomenon several times, and that is one of the reasons why I want to carefully review and help with people’s first pull requests. I’m looking at the future, instead of only the current pull request. A fresh example is Leonardo Collado-Torres’s recent (and the second) pull request to the blogdown package, in which he brought a very useful RStudio addin that makes it really neat to upload and insert images to your blog posts: This is useful because it saves users from the headache of understanding the special static/ directory in the Hugo system. You just upload your image, and this addin will copy it to the right place and insert the right Markdown or HTML code in your post. Gitignore - Unignore subdirectories of ignored directories in Git.

Git Revert "revert is not possible because you have unmerged files" How to resolve merge conflicts in Git. Git: after resolving the conflicts, mark the corrected paths. CompareWith: Easy diff and merge in RStudio. We are happy to announce the R package compareWith, providing user-friendly RStudio addins that simplify diff and merge tasks.

Just ahead of the upcoming useR! 2019 Toulouse, where Miraier Nikki will be introducing the package in a short talk during one of the lightning sessions (Thursday morning - July 11), we are pleased to put this small utility out here, which has brought some noticeable enhancement to our day-to-day R development process over the past year. Integration of version control tools in R and RStudio is still significantly behind what is desirable. Git - Undoing changes. This tutorial provides all of the necessary skills to work with previous revisions of a software project.

Git - Undoing changes

First, it shows you how to explore old commits, then it explains the difference between reverting public commits in the project history vs. resetting unpublished changes on your local machine. git checkout The git checkout command serves three distinct functions: checking out files, checking out commits, and checking out branches. In this module, we’re only concerned with the first two configurations. Checking out a commit makes the entire working directory match that commit.

Usage. Git - pull/push from multiple remote locations. Newbie's Guide to Making A Pull Request (for an R package) Having only ever worked with my own packages/repos before, I found this was to be perfect opportunity to “get my feet wet”!

Newbie's Guide to Making A Pull Request (for an R package)

A “Minimal”, Step-by-Step Breakdown of the Process To the reader who is interested in nothing else other than the “minimum” set of “required” steps of making a pull request , I’ve outlined the steps that I took below (with additional commentary provided afterwards and/or with footnotes). I use double brackets {{/}} to indicate names/variables that should be filled in by you for your particular use case. More specifically, There are a couple of extra/alternative things you should consider doing in this process (although these are completely optional).

Git Forks and Upstreams: How-to and a cool tip. Forking projects to make your own changes lets you easily integrate your own contributions.

Git Forks and Upstreams: How-to and a cool tip

But if you’re not sending those changes back upstream—which means sending it back to the parent repository—you’re at risk for losing track of them, which can cause divergent lines in your repository. To make sure all contributors are drawing from the same place, you’ll need to know some principles of how git forking interacts with git upstream. In this blog, I’ll introduce you to the basics, the gotchas, and even leave you with a cool tip to get you ahead of the curve. Git - Clean up a fork and restart it from the upstream. Git-rebase Documentation. Rebasing interactively means that you have a chance to edit the commits which are rebased.

You can reorder the commits, and you can remove them (weeding out bad or otherwise unwanted patches). The interactive mode is meant for this type of workflow: have a wonderful ideahack on the codeprepare a series for submissionsubmit where point 2. consists of several instances of finish something worthy of a commitcommit realize that something does not workfix thatcommit it Sometimes the thing fixed in b.2. cannot be amended to the not-quite perfect commit it fixes, because that commit is buried deeply in a patch series. Git - How can I merge two commits into one if I already started rebase?

Kindly Closing Pull Requests. Getting your first pull request from an outside contributor on GitHub is an exciting experience.

Kindly Closing Pull Requests

Someone cared enough about the problem you were solving to check it out themselves, change something, and contribute that change back to your project. When your project has a relatively small number of high-quality, desirable incoming pull requests it is easy to happily merge them. Where things can become more difficult is when your project becomes more notable and the quality, desirability, or number of pull requests you receive causes difficulties.

Probot. Automatically close stale Issues and Pull Requests that tend to accumulate during a project. How it works After a period of inactivity, a label will be applied to mark an issue as stale, and optionally a comment will be posted to notify contributors that the Issue or Pull Request will be closed.If the Issue or Pull Request is updated, or anyone comments, then the stale label is removed and nothing further is done until it becomes stale again.If no more activity occurs, the Issue or Pull Request will be automatically closed with an optional comment. Installation After installing the app, create .github/stale.yml in the default branch to enable it:
