Media Browser repository is now on Github
about 4 years ago
I just created a “clone of the Media Browser repository”:http://github.com/sambo99/Media-Browser/tree/master on Github.
h2. Why does this matter?
It’s not only that git is what all the cool kids are using. As a developer working with git is a much more pleasurable experience, with subversion there is a lot of waiting around each time you commit. Subversion encourages big fat check-ins, cause you tend to only check-in stuff once a day and you can not stage commits. Branching is cheap but merging, even with the latest subversion is still lagging behind git.
Anyway, you can read all about “why git is better than x”:http://whygitisbetterthanx.com/.
It’s a myth that there are no tools for Windows. “MsysGit”:http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/ gives you the two most important gui tools. “gitk” and “git gui”.
Now that our main repository is on github, ANYONE can fork Media Browser and add whatever features they want. Github makes it really easy to do so. Just create an account on github. We can then cherry pick which features/bugs we want to pull back into trunk.
So what are you waiting for “read up about git”:http://stackoverflow.com/questions/315911/git-for-beginners-the-definitive-practical-guide , it will change your whole approach to source control.
