The past couple of months have been a roller-coaster thrill for us here in Thundra. First, let me summarize a couple of news before switching to our main topic; Sidekick Gitlab integration.
Here at Ably we consider software development to be in our DNA. We write and maintain a lot of code, much of it open-source, with full public visibility, and we host and manage it using the GitHub platform. The code is segmented into numerous discrete repositories, each with a specific scope and purpose. We've been using GitHub heavily since Ably was founded in 2016, so we have plenty of history, and we're committed to the platform.
Git is one of the most useful tools for developers and development teams. And Git checkout remote branch makes it easier to collaborate and review. Let’s learn about it today. As developers, we work with Git often. In fact, at Stackify by Netreo, we have a Git page where you can see quite a few repositories. Like many developers and groups, we migrated our version control to a Git-based system a few years back. So working with Git is a big part of our ongoing work.
Using badges in your Github repositories is a great visual way to attract people. Some badges are meaningful and productive to make use of, they boost the readability of your readme files. Visitors of your repositories can capture the “important metrics that you decide” instantly. To help you decide about the important metrics, I gathered the top five badges to support your GitHub repositories’ trustworthiness with regards to being well tested and trusted.
We have already wrote previously about how you can automate your testing routines without using the graphical interface but by using Loadero API instead. In this blog post we will show how you can integrate performance and load tests into your CI/CD workflows with the help of Github Actions. Github Actions allow you to automate and execute your development workflows directly from your repository which makes the integration very simple.
CI/CD has become an integral part of any software development workflow. It is hard to imagine a world of software without CI/CD as it is indisputably the backbone of DevOps. From affecting lead times and deployment frequencies to changing failure rates and MTTR, a solid CI/CD can mean success or great failure for any development team.
Today Logilica, a leader in developer-first value stream productivity solutions, announced their Technology Partnership with GitLab. Logilica, who recently presented at GitLab’s global developer conference Commit 2021, invested in strengthening their out-of-the-box integration for all GitLab users on all tiers.
Many organizations are using Gitflow as a branching model for their use of Git and Github Checks to monitor their testing of code changes. This article highlights how following the Gitflow process for a Hotfix can produce unexpected results when using Github Checks and explains why this edge case occurs.
