Git with MS Team Foundation Server: how to checkout/checkin one file without pulling the entire repository
Posted on 2014-10-26
Our team has a file repository using Git with Team Foundation Server.
Currently the way we are working with it is to use Microsoft Visual Studio or TortoiseGit. We check out the entire repository to local, do the editing, and then commit to the local repository, and finally push the local repository to remote server.
We have some team members are only working on a couple of the documents in the repository, such that pulling the entire repository to local seems too much overhead to them. Is there a way that they can check-out and check-in a single file without pulling the entire repository to their local computer?
If there is any tool, setting in the tool, or some way of writing script to do this, please give me some tip.
