Git & GitHub interface

Git and GitHub are the two modern source control platforms that change the way we can work together developing software. GitHub is a rich user interface on top of Git and enables you to manage source repositories. Although GitHub shines best in open source development communities, it's power can also be used by IBM i developers. TD/OMS integrates with both Git and GitHub and enables an end to end deployment platform leveraging (and harnessing) both tools.

Git overview

Introducing Git and GitHub

Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. Git is easy to learn and has a tiny footprint with lightning fast performance.

GitHub is a development platform inspired by the way you work. From open source to business, you can host and review code, manage projects, and build software alongside millions of other developers. GitHub brings teams together to work through problems, move ideas forward, and learn from each other along the way.

TD/OMS and GitHub interface features:

  • Add one or more repositories that you want to work with in TD/OMS.
  • View your issues and pull requests by creating customized filters through a simplified wizard. Some examples: view all the open issues or the open pull requests of a repository.
  • Link (or disconnect) your issues and pull requests to TD/OMS tasks or requests for improved tracking of the items affected.
  • View the linked tasks/requests under your issues or pull requests and vice versa.
  • Open your issues and pull requests in your browser from TD/OMS to view the complete information for an item if necessary.
