 Best platform for Open Source Development

The limitation of private repositories for individual users. As a company you can afford to spend some bucks to get private repositories and all Github features for them, but as an individual Github will not be that useful if you don't throw some money at it. Version control is unparalleled, the ...

Source control with a pleasure

22/02/2017

Github has been adding great things on top of plain old pull requests and diffs. The issue tracking and gist features work wonders for making a smooth workflow. I enjoy merging today.

Github all the way

17/02/2017

Github is number 1 choice when it comes to code repository. I use github everyday from cloning a repo to creating a pull request. Github is easy to use. There are lot of UI clients available if you don't want to use command line.

The best open source manager!

14/02/2017

I used to use SourceForge but they've become a huge pain in the butt. Github offers so much more and it's completely ad free to boot. Everything downloads at full bandwidth, no special speeds for special payers. Also it has a tool that rivals all of the paste sites called gist, you should check it out gist.github.com, I use it to paste up 7mb and larger text files with great ease and you don't even pay for even larger sizes! The real question is why are you not using Github?

GitHup- Excellent tool for version control

10/02/2017

A very powerful tool for version control, very helpful for the team to manage their code in different braches as per the allocated tasks. It can keep track of every commit keep the development in sync. Easily configurable with eclipse. Code reviews can easily be done by pull request feature. Really good tool to get the team and code managed.

Git always fit in code maintenance

10/02/2017

I used this tool in my projects for repository managements. In this tool, we can easily work with the same code on which other person is working. Because in this tool we can create the local repository and push the local branch in main branch after implementation. GitHub and similar services bring all of the benefits of a decentralized VCS to a centralized service. From the contractor's point of view, private Git repos give you an easy workflow that can be used for multiple clients. You could set up Git on a server of your own, but it's probably not worth it to spend your time administering the server and your clients' accounts on it.
