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.

Impact on You as a User

Add Collaborators by e-mail

We’ve added a new feature for our professional users called “Add collaborators by email”. Now you can invite your team members to have access to your workspace, which includes a full overview of the project’s git activities insights, editing, and managing both projects and teams. The person invited to a workspace has full access to all the settings and parameters as the owner.

Simply go to your Settings tab and choose Manage Collaborators:

Click the Add Collaborator button in the top right corner, and add the email address of the person you’d like to invite to your workspace:

Invite collaborators by email, take a guided tour of our application and look closely at your developers’ commits

Show commits for a single developer

In the project Dashboard you need to choose the Developer’s tab and then click on the chosen developer to see their git activity statistics. Then click Show Commits right under the Progress Overview. There you can see all the commits made by this specific developer.

Guided Tour

The guided tour should now always appear on the first login/after registration – we recommend following the lessons you’re the most interested in, to get familiar with the tool faster and use it more efficiently! 😉

That’s all for now as a little warm-up before the next big implementation.
The upcoming months will bring a major expansion of our application, so stay tuned!

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

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.
