Who we are

We are the developers of Plastic SCM, a full version control stack (not a Git variant). We work on the strongest branching and merging you can find, and a core that doesn't cringe with huge binaries and repos. We also develop the GUIs, mergetools and everything needed to give you the full version control stack.

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

We also code SemanticMerge, and the gmaster Git client.

Today I'll come up with a small tip and no, it won't be related to branching, merging, replicas or patterns from the Linux kernel... promised!

An easy one for a Thursday, cool?

Ok, I'd love to have something as cool as the Chrome Theme Gallery but let's start small: do you know your current Plastic SCM GUI client is able to change the top banner so you can customize it and look cooler than any of your colleagues?

Look, suppose you want to give your GUI a more Christmas-time style:

Cool, isn't it?

Ok, in order to change your banner:

  • Create a beautiful png image (500x56 aprox)
  • Save it as banner.png at your Plastic client location
  • Restart the Plastic GUI and... you're done!

    In case you want to give a try to the Christmas banner, just download this one:

    And now a quick look at my own private banner gallery... ;)

    Well, I know you're all very busy "pros" doing important stuff with Plastic but... maybe you can give it a try, or even better, design and share your own!! :)

    I'm the CTO and Founder at Códice.
    I've been leading Plastic SCM since 2005. My passion is helping teams work better through version control.
    I had the opportunity to see teams from many different industries at work while I helped them improving their version control practices.
    I really enjoy teaching (I've been a University professor for 6+ years) and sharing my experience in talks and articles.
    And I love simple code. You can reach me at @psluaces.
