GIT Version Control

I have tried several version control systems including subversion, bzr and git. By far I found GIT to be the easiest to setup and maintain. Also the application is well documented and supported by the original developers. Here I will be sharing my experience with setting up and using GIT for our projects.

Topic: GIT
In software development, Git is a distributed revision control and source code management (SCM) system with an emphasis on speed.[4] Git was initially designed and developed by Linus Torvalds for Linux kernel development in 2005.

Server setup:
1. Create a folder on the server. Ex: mkdir /home/user/repo
2. cd into the folder and run git –bare init
a. Clone the repo:
b. git clone /home/user/repo
c. cd repo
d. create a test file “touch readme”
e . add some sample content echo “blah” > readme
f . run the following commands
git add .
git commit
git push
git config –global user.email “you@example.com”
git config –global user.name “Your Name”

To set your account’s default identity.
Omit –global to set the identity only in this repository.

Client setup:

Note: You can change the remote origin by editing the file
.git/config
or use git remote set-url origin git://new.url.here
Example
[remote “origin”]
url = mas@server:path/to/repo

1. create a local folder mkdir /home/testrepo
a. cd /home/testrepo
b. git init
2. run git clone username@serverhost:/home/testrepo
– if you modify a file , issue git commit -a -m “comment”
– if you add a file issue git add .
-before you commit always do a pull — git pull origin master
-then push — git push origin master

Maintaining GIT:
on the server–
-check changes on a branch
git checkout branchname
-merge changes to master
git checkout master
git merge branchname
–** note while you are checkout at the server level. client will not be able to commit

—- add/remove origin
git remote add origin path////
git remote rm origin

–git -V ?
