Why aren't you using git-flow? Vincent Driessen's branching model is a git branching and release management strategy that helps developers keep track of features, hotfixes and releases in bigger software projects.
This workflow has lot of commands to type and remember, though, so there's also the git-flow library of git subcommands that helps automate some parts of the flow to make working with it a lot easier. After installing git-flow (brew install git-flow), you can start using git-flow in your repository by using it's init command. You can use it in existing projects, but let's start a new repository: Table of Contents. A successful Git branching model » nvie.com. In this post I present the development model that I’ve introduced for all of my projects (both at work and private) about a year ago, and which has turned out to be very successful.
I’ve been meaning to write about it for a while now, but I’ve never really found the time to do so thoroughly, until now. I won’t talk about any of the projects’ details, merely about the branching strategy and release management. It focuses around Git as the tool for the versioning of all of our source code. Getting Git. Web,Open source, Agile, Architecture, Java. Git Reference. Nick Farina - Git Is Simpler Than You Think. It was about one year ago that we switched to Git.
Previously, we used Subversion, through the Mac app Versions, which (rightly) holds an Apple Design Award. I made the executive decision to leave our comfy world of Versions because it seemed clear that Git was winning the Internet. There was much grumbling from my teammates, who were busy enough doing actual work thank you very much. But I pressed forward. We signed up for accounts on Github. It might as well have printed PC LOAD LETTER. “Not currently on any branch?!” Maintenance Required Git is not a Prius. By now we all know how to drive Git. Did you know the top result for “git tutorial” is this manpage on kernel.org? So instead let’s pull over, open the hood up, and poke around. The Basics We’ll run through some basic commands to make a repository for our examples: Now we have a git repository with one file and one commit, that is to say, one “version”. ~/mysite$ echo "<center>Cats are cute. With me so far?
Git - Revision Control Perfected. In 2005, after just two weeks, Linus Torvalds completed the first version of Git, an open-source version control system.
Unlike typical centralized systems, Git is based on a distributed model. It is extremely flexible and guarantees data integrity while being powerful, fast and efficient. With widespread and growing rates of adoption, and the increasing popularity of services like GitHub, many consider Git to be the best version control tool ever created. Surprisingly, Linus had little interest in writing a version control tool before this endeavor. He created Git out of necessity and frustration. Scott Chacon on the Interwebs.
August 31, 2011 Issues with git-flow I travel all over the place teaching Git to people and nearly every class and workshop I’ve done recently has asked me what I think about git-flow.
I always answer that I think that it’s great - it has taken a system (Git) that has a million possible workflows and documented a well tested, flexible workflow that works for lots of developers in a fairly straightforward manner. It has become something of a standard so that developers can move between projects or companies and be familiar with this standardized workflow. However, it does have its issues.
One of the bigger issues for me is that it’s more complicated than I think most developers and development teams actually require. Both of these issues can be solved easily just by having a much more simplified process. Its simplicity gives it a number of advantages. Why Git is Better Than X. Dive into Git. Git est un logiciel de gestion de versions (VCS, pour Version Control System) décentralisé créé par Linus Torvalds.
C'est un outil très puissant et populaire. Il est notamment utilisé pour le développement du noyau Linux (et bien d'autres projets célèbres). Il est d'ailleurs tellement apprécié que les développeurs du noyau se demandent aujourd'hui comment ils ont pu s'en passer quand il n'existait pas encore. Devant tant d'éloges, j'ai voulu tester cet outil. Il n'est pas compliqué à apprivoiser, en revanche son fonctionnement est un peu différent d'autres logiciels de versioning (notamment SVN, que j'avais déjà utilisé), principalement à cause de la décentralisation qui caractérise Git. En effet, alors que la plupart des logiciels de gestion de versions nécessitent un serveur central auquel tout le monde se connecte pour envoyer et recevoir les modifications, Git permet à chaque utilisateur de disposer d'un dépôt local qu'il peut synchroniser avec les autres utilisateurs.
Scie.nti.st » Hosting Git repositories, The Easy (and Secure) Way. Update (12-12-2010): For additional features not present in gitosis, check out gitolite.
Update (08-10-2008): For topics not covered here, I encourage everyone to read the gitosis README, bundled with the distribution. There is also an example.conf configuration file that illustrates more features than I have covered here. I have been asked more and more these days, “How do I host a Git repository?” Usually it is assumed that some access control beyond simply read-only is involved (some users have commit rights).
With access control comes issues of security, and that’s a whole other bag of cats. The rest of this article will be a tutorial showing you how to host and manage Git repositories with access control, easily and safely. Assumptions: I take my examples from a Ubuntu Linux server. Enough talk, let’s get down and dirty. Install gitosis. Paris JUG : Improve your sex life with Git. Git Community Book. Fast Version Control System. Welcome to the Git version control system!
Here we will briefly introduce you to Git usage based on your current Subversion knowledge. You will need the latest Git installed; There is also a potentially useful tutorial in the Git documentation. How to Read Me In those small tables, at the left we always list the Git commands for the task, while at the right the corresponding Subversion commands you would use for the job are listed. If you are in hurry, just skimming over them should give you a good idea about the Git usage basics. Before running any command the first time, it's recommended that you at least quickly skim through its manual page. Things You Should Know. Git Immersion - Brought to you by EdgeCase.
The Perfect Workflow, with Git, GitHub, and SSH. In this lesson, we'll focus on workflow. More specifically, we'll use the helpful GitHub service hooks to automatically update a project on our personal server whenever we push updates to a GitHub repo. Prefer a Video Tutorial?
