Understanding Git and Git Basic Workflow

Git is a valuable tool for the ones who are in the software industry, and it is the most popular version control system in the world and used by 90% of the industry. It is no doubt a very important skill to have on your resume when starting your career in the industry. In the following article, we will understand what is Git and its basic workflow.

What is Git?

Git is the most popular version control system in the world and used by the majority of the IT industry. A version control system records changes made in the files over time and can store those changes in a repository.

Through a repository, Programmer can monitor their project code and modify them accordingly using a repository . We can also revert to any version of the files if we have made a mistake in the process. Without version control system the developers will store multiple versions of the files they are working on if any changes are made and the job will become exhausting if multiple developers are working on the same project. With Git we can track our work history and collaborate easily on the project.

This simple concept of recording changes throughout the development cycle has proven efficient and has opened consequential applications.

Why use Git?

Git is valuable for multiple reasons. It is a distributed version control system which means every developer working on the project has access to the codebase of the files including its complete history. Git is free and open-source which means it can be used by anyone without any charges. It is also easy to understand and extremely scalable.

What is Git Workflow?

Git workflow also referred to sometimes as Gitflow is a branched based development procedure that helps the team of developers for continuous deployment of the project. Git workflow is an ideal choice for projects with schedule release cycle and for DevOps project. But since Git workflow is simple and efficient it is suitable for any projects with different scales and practices.

Understanding Git Workflow

For beginners to understand the process of basic Git Workflow we will need to know three things.

  1. Project directory

  2. Staging area

  3. Repository

Best Practices for Using Git

Git has become ubiquitous as the preferred version control system (VCS) used by developers. Using Git adds immense value especially for engineering teams where several developers work together since it becomes critical to have a system of integrating everyone’s code reliably.

But with every powerful tool, especially one that involves collaboration with others, it is better to establish conventions to follow lest we shoot ourselves in the foot.

At DeepSource, we’ve put together some guiding principles for our own team that make working with a VCS like Git easier. Here are 5 simple rules you can follow:

1. Make Clean, Single-Purpose Commits

Oftentimes programmers working on something get sidetracked into doing too many things when working on one particular thing — like when you are trying to fix one particular bug and you spot another one, and you can’t resist the urge to fix that as well. And another one. Soon, it snowballs and you end up with so many changes all going together in one commit.

This is problematic, and it is better to keep commits as small and focused as possible for many reasons, including:

  • It makes it easier for other people in the team to look at your change, making code reviews more efficient.
  • If the commit has to be rolled back completely, it’s far easier to do so.
  • It’s straightforward to track these changes with your ticketing system.

Additionally, it helps you mentally parse changes you’ve made using git log.

7 Best Practices in GIT for Your Code Quality

There is no doubt that Git plays a significant role in software development. It allows developers to work on the same code base at the same time. Still, developers struggle for code quality. Why? They fail to follow git best practices. In this post, I will explain seven core best practices of Git and a Bonus Section.

1. Atomic Commit

Committing something to Git means that you have changed your code and want to save these changes as a new trusted version.

Version control systems will not limit you in how you commit your code.

  • You can commit 1000 changes in one single commit.
  • Commit all the dll and other dependencies
  • Or you can check in broken code to your repository.

But is it good? Not quite.

Because you are compromising code quality, and it will take more time to review codeSo overall, team productivity will be reduced. The best practice is to make an atomic commit.

When you do an atomic commit, you’re committing only one change. It might be across multiple files, but it’s one single change.

2. Clarity About What You Can (& Can’t) Commit

Many developers make some changes, then commit, then push. And I have seen many repositories with unwanted files like dll, pdf, etc.

You can ask two questions to yourself, before check-in your code into the repository

  1. Are you suppose to check-in all these files?
  2. Are they part of your source code?

You can simply use the .gitignore file to avoid unwanted files in the repository. If you are working on more then one repo, it’s easy to use a global .gitignore file (without adding or pushing). And .gitignore file adds clarity and helps you to keep your code clean. What you can commit, and it will automatically ignore the unwanted files like autogenerated files like .dll and .class, etc.

Git for Beginners: An Overview and Basic Workflow

Git is a tricky subject to get your head around. Knowing the commands is one thing, but knowing how to use them is another.

This article will walk you through a simple, single developer Git workflow - covering the commands that you would use at each stage. For further documentation on the Git commands, I would highly recommend the official Git website.

This article was written while teaching our designers the wonders of Git. They started from a “I’m scared of the terminal and all this voodoo matrix magic” background and are now fully fledged Git users - so I’m hoping it can help you too.

This is a Git tutorial for the command line. All the commands should be entered into the terminal on your computer. For this article I am assuming you are on a Linux based system (either Mac or similar). For windows users - the Git commands will be the same, but you will have a dedicated Git terminal to enter them in.

The commands will be preceded with a $ - this is to show it is a command to be typed on the command line - but the symbol should not be entered. If you’re not familiar with the command line, I advise you have a read over an article for command line beginners.

If you’re not too familiar with command line, there are a few basic commands you should get familiar with.

  • cd - change directory - this is for navigating around the file system
  • ls - list the files in the current directory
  • cp - copy a file from one place to the other
  • mv - move a file or folder
  • mkdir - make a directory

If you learn and understand the above then that will put you in good stead for the rest of the article.

At the top of each section there will be a bullet list of the commands covered in that section with a brief explanation of what they do. Following that is a background and deeper explanation of the process.

Basic Git Commands you need to Master

In this part you will get familiar with some basic Git commands. At the end of this blog you will be able to perform certain task like

  • Set up a folder as a Git repository
  • Perform basic Git operations on your Git repository

These are those commands you must conquer

Basic Git Commands

  • At any location on your computer, create a folder named git-test.
  • Open this git-test folder in your favorite editor.
  • Add a file named index.html to this folder, and add the following HTML code to this file:
<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>
<head></head>
<body>
<h1>Sab Batade Aapko</h1>
</body>
</html>

Initializing the folder as a Git repository

  • Go to the git-test folder in your cmd window/terminal and type the following command at the prompt to initialize the folder as a Git repository:
git init

this command will make a file named .git
