Git workflows

  2. 2. Git Workflows are simply guidelines and not a set of strict rules.
  3. 3. Feature Branch Workflow Git Workflows Gitflow Workflow Forking Workflow Basic/Centralized Workflow
  4. 4. Basic/ Centralized Workflow The most basic Git Workflow • Something like SVN workflow • Advantages over SVN: • Local copy of entire project • Branching and merging model • All changes are committed into master branch (SVN trunk equivalent)
  5. 5. Basic/Centralized Workflow Git Workflows Gitflow Workflow Forking Workflow Feature Branch Workflow
  6. 6. Feature Branch Workflow Branch by feature • Master branch represents the code base (final solution) • Each developer works on its own feature • This workflow avoid broken code • Share feature with other developer without change master branch • Code Review is the major advantage of using pull requests • Join feature into master branch • Discuss changes between developers
  7. 7. Feature Branch Workflow Git Workflows Basic/Centralized Workflow Forking Workflow Gitflow Workflow
  8. 8. Gitflow Workflow Gitflow • Proposes • Managing feature development • Release preparation • Maintenance • More complex than Feature Branch Workflow • Main branches: • master – stores the official release history • develop – serves as an integration branch for features • Feature branches • Each feature branch should reside on its branch • The feature branch isn’t merged into master directly, it should be merged on develop branch
  9. 9. Gitflow Workflow Gitflow • Release Branches • When develop branch has enough features for a release it’s time to create a new branch from develop – Release Branch • This action starts a new release cycle • New feature can’t be added • Only can be added bug fixes, documentation and tasks related with the release process • When the release is ready to deliver, the release branch should be merged into master and develop and a new tag should be created.
  10. 10. Gitflow Workflow Gitflow • Maintenance Branches • Also known as a hotfix branch • Unique branch that should be created from master branch • When the fix is complete, the branch should be merged into master and develop or the current release branch • Master branch should be tagged with the current version
  11. 11. Feature Branch Workflow Git Wokflows Gitflow Workflow Basic/Centralized Workflow Forking Workflow
  12. 12. Forking Workflow Forking Workflow • It’s different from other workflows already presented here • There is no central repository • Each developer has a server-side repository (public) and a local repository (private) • Developers push to their own server-side repositories • Only the project maintainer can push to the official repository • In this way, project maintainer accept commits from any developer without giving them access to the official codebase • Bitbucket and Github are examples of using this workflow.
