Git Best Practices

August 5, 2013 | 1 min Read

At EclipseSource and Eclipse we love git, as you can tell by the 582 public repositories on Eclipse’s github page.

Once you are familiar with the basics (if not, try this 15 minute tutorial or watch Linus Torvalds explain git) and have been using git for a little while, you may have questions such as:

  • What are some guidelines for organizing large projects into multiple repositories?
  • What are some good strategies for working with branches?
  • Is it ok to change a published commit?

These are some questions I ran into in the past year. I recently came across this very useful ‘Git Best Practices’ guide. It discusses these questions and much more.
