GIT for dummies

GIT for dummies | Git and Development | Scoop.it

GIT is well known as an extremely useful tool for developers, but what is it, how does it work and why is it useful for beginning developers?

What is GIT used for?

GIT is a software that is installed locally on a computer that will handle ‘Version Control’. Version Control is a great way to keep track of changes to projects files, which are stored in a particular directory. As these files will inevitably change over time as other people work on them, Version Control makes it possible to revert back to a previous working versions of the files, keeping multiple copies of the same directory at the same time. GIT keeps an history of any change made to the directory with some additional information like “who” did it and “when”. It can then be used to make steps back and forth through each point of git’s history whenever necessary. This is all very useful for individuals but when working as a team the project directory will need to be shared and changes will need to be sent amongst the team. The best way to share a project under git with other team members is to use an hosted git service such as GitHub or Bitbucket.

Export feature released for your project!

Export feature released for your project! | Git and Development | Scoop.it

Nowadays the internet is the place of a greater exchange of information. Just by browsing any website, we produce data without even realizing it, and over time we produce more and more of it.
More and more services on the internet are using this data not only to provide better service to their users, but often, subtly, as a tool to force the user to continue using the service.

The rate of trust in internet services is endemically low. Some companies do not like that so they try to force their users to stay by making the abandonment of the service difficult or impossible.

At Hi.diplo we are deeply convinced that these practices are not only incorrect but also unethical. We want users to continue being our customers because they find our service to be the best. For this reason, we want our users to be able to download all the data at Hi.diplo at any time and free of charge.

To do so, today we are announcing the Hi.diplo’s export feature!

Thanks to the export feature, you will be able to download all of the events on your project’s timeline. Whether you do it out of curiosity or because you want to leave (hopefully not), it makes no difference.

It’s only right that you can do it and you should pretend it from all the services you use.

Public timelines for Hi Diplo developer tool

Public timelines for Hi Diplo developer tool | Git and Development | Scoop.it

As a start up we firmly believe that in order to improve our services and meet the requirements of our users we should start from the feedbacks and suggestions we receive.

A few days after the launch of Hi.diplo we received a feedback from one of our users regarding the idea to allow the public sharing of the project’s timeline.

Today this idea is real.
From now on, Hi.diplo allows users to share their project’s time line in read-only mode!

Github or Bitbucket: which host takes a bow as the best?

Github or Bitbucket: which host takes a bow as the best? | Git and Development | Scoop.it

GitHub has been thought of for sometime as the open source community’s chosen repository, benefiting from what many would say is a dominate position.

It is, in fact, is more accurately known as a ‘web-based revision control service,’ in contrast to a simple code repository. This distinction is an acknowledgement of the site’s community activity, which continues to operate at a healthy level. The site has many projects where users continuously refine and develop their work, creating a sense of a lively environment.

The platform’s revision control features also recall the original Git open source code management package as developed by Linus Torvald. The site has grown to host in excess of three million different projects, one of which is the Linux kernel, and it also has public repositories for the likes of Microsoft Windows Azure, Mozilla, the Open Compute Project, Red Hat JBoss and Twitter.
