Moving to GitHub

<1 min read

I just moved all of my CVS & Subversion repositories over to GitHub.

Well, all is a big word. Some projects were so old, and never really had any revisions, that I didn't bother.

Why GitHub? Because I like it better than Google Code. That might change.

I still have to convert a lot of my non-public projects, but that's another story…

Github is amazing

- I'm constantly astounded by how good it is. I used it 'in anger' when I did that Google+ feed last year and posted my Python scripts, and it was so cool to get Pull Request updates from random people with code fixes that I could merge with one click - no previous signup or explicit permissions needed. Browsing code, grabbing updates, viewing diffs, tracking projects and coders - it's all just amazingly well done.

Seriously, Github is just one of those sites/services that addresses a need in a way that I never imagined it being done. If you had asked me before, I would have said Google Code was about as good as it could get.

Now if only I could figure out how to revert code using git easily. I know a change is in there somewhere... I've committed it, I just can't ever seem to get it back out again. ;-)

Russ, have you tried SmartGit? It's free, and works like a charm.
