Pull Requests And Code Reviews

There are two words that will help open a lot of doors in life. Push and Pull. Here, we’re going to talk about Pull Requests. Pull requests have since become a standard part of the software development process and are closely associated with code reviews. Code reviews involve teamwork and collaboration on code and serve as one of the four main drivers of software development, alongside speed, quality, and efficiency.

By GITENTIAL TEAM

We are pleased to announce that Gitential now provides software development analytics support for GitLab! GitLab is arguably the send most popular git repository management platform that has also emerged as a complete DevOps solution. We would like to briefly introduce GitLab, its positioning within the Git repository management market, and cover some of our other recent updates.

About GitLab

In their own words, GitLab started as an open-source project to help teams collaborate on software development. Gitlab has since developed into a single application for the entire software development and operations lifecycle – and a complete DevOps platform. Hundreds of thousands of organizations use and contribute to GitLab. Some notable organizations relying upon GitLab include Goldman-Sachs, the European Space Agency, and Ticketmaster, to name a few. GitLab offers free accounts along with three different premium tiers that top out at $99 per user, per month.



In the two years since @linuxhint created this video, it’s appropriate to note that GitHub has added about 12 million users, bringing their total to about 40 million.

The Top 4 Git Repository Managers

According to Stackoverflow, over 87% of developers rely upon git for software version control. Nearly all of them rely upon at least one git repository management platform. Adding compatibility with GitLab has been in the works for several months. We’re proud to now support all four of the top git repository managers – by estimated users:
  1. GitHub
  2. GitLab
  3. BitBucket
  4. Azure DevOps
If you’re unfamiliar with the git repository management platforms, Stackshare has a comprehensive comparison of Github, GitLab, and BitBucket. All three provide free or nearly-free support for teams of any size working with open source projects. Their rates vary for projects requiring private repositories or self-hosting accounts. Gitential also supports GitHub Enterprise and BigBucket Server premium accounts for non-open-source projects.

Finalizing the July Release Notes

The new GitLab compatibility update is the final addition for our July release notes, announced earlier. In addition to our new, more energetic look, users can now use Firefox browser with Gitential. Further updates include:

  • Gitential is much easier to navigate with mobile.
  • It’s easier to start new projects and toggle between existing ones.
  • Professional and Enterprise users can export their git repository data for use in any out-of-tool analysis programs they like.

We’d love to hear from you. What do you think about our new look? What new features would you like to see? We’d love to hear about any news you would like to share – new releases, new funding drives, or successful funding efforts. Please hit us up on Twitter – and let us know what other social media channels you’re active on!

The Gitential Guide on How to Reduce the Size of Your Git Repository

Unfortunately, there are no easy ways on how to reduce the size of your git repositories. However, there are quite a few ways to keep your repositories down to an efficient and easily manageable size. Many of them are fairly simple and can be set up fairly quickly. But, they probably won’t help you if you are already exceeding your repository cap on Bitbucket, Github, Gitlab, or Azure DevOps. For this scenario, we can help you identify what to target when it becomes necessary to deal with a large repository.
