    Project mention: Git branch switching | | 2022-06-21

    If you want to temporarily commit in-progress changes to a branch, but don't want those intermediate commits to end up in the upstream repository, one option is to add a local pre-push hook. Put an identifier like "WIP" in the commit message of any commits that are in an incomplete state, and have your hook reject any commits containing that string. That way you can't forget about them and accidentally push them without squashing. (In fact, this is one of the example hooks included with Git.)

  • libgit2

    A cross-platform, linkable library implementation of Git that you can use in your application.

    Project mention: Whatever happened to SHA-256 support in Git? | | 2022-06-23

    > All that is left is the hard work of making the transition to a new hash easy for users — what could be thought of as "the other 90%" of the job.

    If that was all that was left, we could at least be using sha256 for new repositories.

    It seems to me the big missing piece is support in libgit2, which is at least showing signs of progress:

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • jupytext

    Project mention: Ask HN: Are there any good Diff tools for Jupyter Notebooks? | | 2022-05-22
  • SparkleShare

    Project mention: My Secure and Private Notetaking Workflow with an Emphasis on Mobile, based on Gitea and Working Copy (alternative to Standard Notes, Joplin) | | 2021-11-19

    Last time I looked into SparkleShare it seemed like it had been abandoned. Looking at the Github it looks like it hasn't seen a release since Nov 2020. That's what turned me off. The Obsidian-git routine works for me now, but maybe I should experiment with it.

  • gitoxide

    An idiomatic, lean, fast & safe pure Rust implementation of Git

    Project mention: [Gitoxide in May] gix repo exclude query` and full access to work trees | | 2022-06-21

  • hercules

  • git2go

    Git to Go; bindings for libgit2. Like McDonald's but tastier.

    Project mention: How to install pre-requisite software for binary | | 2022-02-07

    Another really good option you should check out is using go-git (although many features are missing IMO, I had issues mainly with git blame), or git2go (but it requires linking to libgit2 which sux, also some features are missing like flags and low-level stuff).

  • keepsake

    Have you heard of It’s like a GitHub fork based backup system for any folder. I haven’t tested it much but the dev is active on Reddit and was looking for people to test it not too long ago

  • diff-hl

    Project mention: Git Gutter in Emacs | | 2022-02-19

    In my experience works better.

  • Subversion

  • centraldogma

  • doorstop

    Requirements management using version control.

    Project mention: Ask HN: How do you keep track of software requirements and test them? | | 2022-04-19

    Zooming into "requirements management" (and out of "developing test cases") there's a couple of Open Source projects that address specifically this important branch of software development. I like both approaches and I think they might be used in different situations. By the way, the creators of these two projects are having useful conversations on aspects of their solutions so you might want to try both and see what's leading from your point of view.


  • schemazen

    Script and create SQL Server objects quickly

    Project mention: Database metadata usage | | 2021-07-22

    There are also a fair number of open source alternatives like SchemaZen and sp_doc (shameless self plug) that also are based on Metadata to generate documentation.

  • PySvn

    Lightweight Subversion library for Python.

  • faros-community-edition
