Git basics

If you're unfamiliar with Git, take a walk through our step-by-step guide. Also, please take the time to review the basics on a tutorial site such as:

  • Interactive web-based 15 minute tutorial:
  • A look at git internals:

You need to get comfortable with the concepts of:

  • Cloning a repo
  • Staging and committing changes
  • Branching and merging
  • Fetching and pulling
  • Pushing to your origin repo on
  • Managing multiple remotes(origin, upstream, contributors' forks, etc.)

It really helps to get confortable with the git command line while learning Git, instead of relying on the SourceTree interface. You'll need to know your way around the command line if you want to leverage the full power of Git with more advanced features like the stash, rebasing and cherry-picking. Create some test repositories to play around with the various features before trying to contribute.

Using git-flow

SourceTree gives us a nice UI integration with git-flow, a robust workflow that helps us manage releases in a systematic way. You just have to press the git-flow button on the SourceTree application ribbon to start initializing git-flow on your local repository.

Take the time to understand the power of git-flow (its feature branches, releases and hotfixes):

  • Make sure you memorize the workflow illustrated here:

SourceTree's git-flow integration is context aware. For example, when you are checked out on the develop branch, SourceTree's git-flow dialog only gives you the option of starting a new release or a new feature. When you are working on a feature branch, the dialog guides you in the right direction by suggesting that you finish your feature (which merges it back into the develop branch), and so on.
