Git is a version control system for software development. It is a distributed revision control system with an emphasis on speed, data integrity, and support for distributed, non-linear workflows. Git was initially designed and developed for Linux kernel development. As with most other distributed version control systems, every Git working directory is a full-fledged repository with complete history and full version-tracking capabilities, independent of network access or a central server.

Hello Experts,
I need to add a Java Eclipse Project into BitBucket which will be cloned and used by the team. While I do have the experience of creating a GIT repository to maintain some XML files, I was wondering what care needs to be taken while adding an entire project (like the files that needs to be ignored, etc). Also, I would be interested to know if there is a way to internally link a JAR file of this Java project into the folder of another project in the same repository.

How can I edit two or three files in Github Enterprise and put them all into one pull request?
I have a bit of a different type of question. I'm trying to find a graphic or come up with a graphic that represents the benefits of version control.

Initially, I was just thinking of putting a company logo and version control logo and then a cloud platform logo on a page with connectors, but that doesn't really capture the benefits of version control.

When I think of benefits, I think of speed, backup, recovery, ease of deployment, etc.

So, I was trying to find a graphical representation of those types of benefits when using version. I thought someone on here might know of a graphic that already exists or might throw out some suggestions.

I have a git ignore file, which ignores all the dll. In a ASP.NET application using visual studio 2017, default template creates a package folder and any nuget downloads are downloaded there. if this folder is not checked into a source control.

How do I configure build server like jenkins/bamboo. so that when I build a project , the required dlls get downloaded?
I'd like to use a project I see in a git repo as the foundation for part of a commercial project.  I don't see any license info in the repo and obviously I won't proceed without some explicit license or agreement.  However, at first glance can someone tell me if you notice any license terms that I'm not seeing?

I can write my own version to get started using this as a reference but it would be nice to skip that step and build my product on this starter code.  How would you handle this?

I just started learning git using source Tree.

I used mercurial hg workbench before and was quite comfortable with it. I usually created new feature/bug/ticket branch from the main branch to work on something. and if there were any updates to the main branch, I would pull the changes and merge the master branch into my local branch, to resolve any conflicts locally.

I imagine I can do similar in git using sourcetree. I am new to git and still reading about all the terminology around it, fetch, rebase, stash and so forth.

How would one usually achieve this in a team environment while using git.

say I'm working on a feature branch, and there is update to master branch, the one you know which will have lot of conflicts. so my idea is to do a pull on to my master branch. then merge that master branch into my local and resolve the conflicts locally .

how would i achieve this in git. do i do a pull, or fetch?
if i have uncomitted changes, do i stash my changes?
Hello, I am in the process of coming up with a git work flow for the company.

I have been looking at the classic example of a successful git strategy:

I have two questions:
1. I first wanted to confirm how everything gets started.  I take it, an empty master repository would first be created and the develop would be branched from that master branch?
2. If the company wants a QA branch in addition to all the other branches recommended in the model, my question is how is that best included so it creates less issues down the line?
 - should the qa branch be cut from the master and then develop branch cut from qa?
- should both the qa branch and the develop branches be cut from the master, with merges taking place from develop to qa as needed?

Please note, the reason they don’t prefer to have a qa branch, is to allow cherry picking of the features included in the branch from the develop branch.

Thanks for any direction you can provide..
How do you find an ip address in one of many config files in a github enterprise repository? I've tried with quotes, without and I get all kinds of whacky variants but not the file with the IP address I want.
Trying to create a build and test sequence on Microsoft VSTS.  Uploaded the Git repository from my local computer.  Build and tests run fine there.

Error I get from the build of the tests project (part 2 of the solution) is that it can't find the dll created in step 1 of the build, a .Net Standard 2.0 library.  It is obvious that the first step succeeds, but the second step (the tests) fails because the reference to the Step 1 library is not referenced correctly in the VSTS build step.

I have search Microsoft and the web for an example that will work, but nothing points to a solution to this.  I am sure it is obvious but I just don't see it.

Hi Experts

Could you point what is necessary to allow external users to merge a Bitbucket repository?

The configuration I have uses Acess Level not private,  accordingly to:

So I guess the people that wants to clone it simply must to run like this:
Is that or anything else is necessary?

Thanks in advance
I am using Visual Studio Community 2017 version 15.7.1

I have a solution that is part of a git repository.  What I make changes to a file; there is a red check mark and when I save; the blue lock goes back on the file.  I would like to push this project as a change up to my git repository stored on visual  However none of the changes on this solution are recognized.

What do I need to do to reset so the changes are recognized and I can add this project to the Visual Studio Team Services site?
To develop php projects I use Netbeans IDE. Ihave the version 8.2 in the WIndows partition and the version 8.1 in the Linux partition (this is the version provided by the official Software Manager).
From Windows I have setup a git repository hosted in BitBucket: first I have created the repo in BitBucket, then I have initialized a Git repo in Netbeans and I have committed and pushed the whole project.
Then, in Linux, I have cloned the repo in Netbeans providing the url of the repo. Everything went fine: I performed commit and push from Windows, then from Linux, then from WIndows again.
The last time I tried to commit from Linux I've got an error about a corrupted object. Some investigation made me realize that the object was an avi file that for reasons I ignore had been copied in the repo (I had moved some video from another external hard drive to the one where even my project is stored: all files have been copied in the right directory but one of them, and only one, has been copied even in the repo!!).
As explained here, I tried to delete the file and finally I did it, unless it was just a ghost-file or someone put some drug in my drink :)

Once deleted the corrupted object I thought everything was fine, but Git still give me an error about another corrupted object, and this time is not a …
Hi everybody.
For some reason I ignore, a avi file has been copied or inserted in my local git repository and renamed as it be  an object. In Nautilus its icon shows the movie preview and if I double-click on it, I can watch the movie.
Now I can't commit my files so, once I have understood what happened, I have tried to delete it opening Nautilus as root or using sudo rm -i and the object name as it appears in Nautilus and in git error, but I get an error telling the file or the directory doesn't exist.

I can't just clone the repositories from BitBucket because it is not updated: I got this error some days ago but I had to go on with the work, so now I have a lot of changes not committed nor pushed.

I would like just to delete the movie from the repo but I don't know how to do it.

Someone can tell me what I have to do? btw, I'm new to Git and generally speaking not so confident with version control commands )

Thank you so much for any help.
Hi experts,
I have a c# solution which i've always just saved onto my local harddrive. I'd like to get this into VSTS so I can 1) use git for version control and 2) use the vsts scrum board to track the project. How do I get this out of my harddrive and into VSTS? I'm using visual studio 2017

After Updating my EDMX Diagram by deleting a table and re-adding it back (I had to remove a field from the table), I synced my code.
Now my co-worker after syncing her code, is unable to view her EDMX diagram (it is blank) and she is getting errors.  We are connected to the same
development database.  How can we fix her EDMX?

I believe we need to delete the .edmx and then add new entity framework?

Every time I do a remote fetch from origin master down to my local master and then merge into my local branch, my preferences file gets overwritten. In my .getignore file the .settings/ folder is excluded:

# GitIgnore for Salesforce Projects
#ignore debug folder
# Project Settings and MetaData

# Apex Log as optional

# Eclipse specific 
Referenced Packages

# Illuminated Cloud (IntelliJ IDEA)

# Mavensmate

# Haoide SublimeText

# OSX-specific exclusions

# The Welkin Suite specific




Open in new window

In my remote feature branch and remote master branch, the .gitignore file is identical and has the .settings/ folder excluded. I cannot figure out why my settings file keeps getting overwritten every time I do a remote fetch and then merge into my local branch.

How can I prevent my preferences file from getting overwritten every time I do a remote fetch from master?

Hi All,

I'm using visual studio code and using the integrated terminal.
When I create a directory and then type "git init", my new directory gets initialized.
But when I type "ls" to list the contents, I get the following error
" 'ls' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. "

Am I missing something?  Thanks!
