Turn your Github Repo into VSCode Editor | Github1s

This blog post will explain how you can quickly open any Github repo in Visual Studio Code in just 1 sec, yes literally in just 1 sec. I like this feature so much that I am using this feature all the time before I clone the repo or if I need to quickly search something i.e. variable, function, text etc. within the entire repository.

All about Git – “Git Stash” Part – II

In this post, I am going to discuss on a very powerful command “git stash”. It is a very powerful command and that is why I want to dedicate a single blogpost discussing only about this important command.WHAT IS GIT STASH:This command will temporarily shelve the changes you’ve made to your working copy so that you can work o something else, and then come back and re-apply those changes at later point in time.HOW TO STASH YOUR WORK:The command git stash takes the uncommitted changes (both staged and unstaged) and saves them away for later use, thus reverting them from your working copy.For example, I have two files “test.txt” and “NewOne.txt”. Out of these two files, “test.txt” is staged and ready to be committed whereas the file “NewOne.txt” is yet to be staged.So if I issue the command git status, below is the result -Now if I issue the command git stash, let’s see what happens -So if I open the file, I will notice that all my changes to these two files are gone. But where? How can I get those changes back? So many questions!! 🙂 I will come into each of these questions slowly.One important point to tell here is that stash is local to your Git repository; stashes are not transferred to the server when you push.HOW TO RE-APPLY THE STASHED CHANGES:One can re-apply the stashed...

All about Git – Cheat Sheet – Basic Part – I

WHAT IS GIT?In today’s world, the most widely used modern version control system is Git. Git is a mature, actively maintained open source project originally developed in 2005 by Linus Torvalds, the famous creator of the Linux operating system kernel.SETTING UP A REPOSITORY:Git uses the below command to create a new Git repository.git initExecuting this command will create a .git subdirectory in the project root and transforms the current folder into a git repository.The below command will create a new folder named directory and initialize the repository by creating .git subdirectorygit init BARE REPOSITORY:The below command will create the bare repository.git init –bare The –bare flag will create a repository which is having no active working directory. This is very important. You should always consider creating your central directory as a bare directory and from there create all your branches (non-bare directory) where the developers will work. Once the work is done, developers will merge their code from branches (non-bare directory) to central repository(bare directory). Since the central repository is bare directory and does not have any active working directory, there is no chance of editing the files and committing them.CLONING AN EXISTING REPOSITORY:The git clone command copies an existing Git Repository. Cloning always creates a remote connection called origin pointing back to the original repository. This makes it very easy to work with the central repository.The below command will...

Implementing Continuous Integration Using Jenkins and Git for Salesforce Development

Continuous Integration (CI) is a development practice the allows developers to check-in their changes into a shared repository unlimited number of times. Each check-in is then verified by an automated build system, thus eliminating the changes of breaking some other part of the application while fixing one part.By implementing Continuous Integration, you can detect errors quickly and locate them more easily. I always recommend to implement Continuous Integration in any kind of software projects. I personally implemented CI multiple times for Java and C++ projects in my career. Now last week, I implemented the same for Salesforce development. In today’s post, I will explain how to do that.Below are the prerequisite softwares -ANT – You can download the software from here.Salesforce Migration Tool – Please check the detail steps @ http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/daas/Content/forcemigrationtool_install.htmGit – You can download the software from here.Eclipse.Before we go further, I recommend you to go through the below posts to understand the concept.Version Controlling in Salesforce with Git + Eclipse.Salesforce Deployment Guide using ANT Migration Tool.Best Practices – Continuous Integration Techniques.Below picture will give you a high level overview about what I am going to achieve by implementing CI.Step 1 – Install Jenkins on your local machine by downloading the Java Web Archive (.war) from here. Once downloaded, execute the below command from the directory where you have saved -java -jar jenkins.warAfter that open your browser and go to http://localhost:8080/. You will...
