git interop

Friday, February 25, 2011 1 Comments

Last December we launched “Git Jungle” a Git repository visualization tool for Git based on Plastic SCM code.

A few weeks later we released “Method history for Subversion” another step ahead in SCM interop (ok, this time just sharing some of our core features with other systems).

We’re working on the next big Plastic SCM release, 4.0, and one of the key goals will be SCM interop. We plan to have (we’re working on it) bi-directional synch with Git and SVN and then eventually add other systems.

We’re developing a Git fast-import and fast-export support which opens the doors to full import/export from Plastic to Git and hence conforms to the format that is growing as the “lingua franca” in the SCM world.

A little bit of jungle

Take a look at the git repository rendered by GitJungle.

And a sneak-preview of 4.0

And now the same repository after being fast-exported and fast-imported into Plastic (cm fast-import) and already showing some of the new (still unveiled :P) Branch Explorer features.

Enjoy and send us feedback!! :)

We develop Plastic SCM, a version control that excels in branching and merging, can deal with huge projects and big binary assets natively, and it comes with GUIs and tools to make everything simpler.

If you want to give it a try, download it from here.

We are also the developers of SemanticMerge, and the gmaster Git client.

  1. Useful tool. Missing just one single feature to become _very_ useful - lines from mother commit to daughter commits in other branches.

    Thanks still :-)
