Git Version Control
Lianja App Builder has integrated Git support for the most common commands. This makes it an excellent choice to manage your code commits while you develop.
Lianja App Builder will leverage your machine's Git installation, so you need to install Git first before you get these features.
You can install Git from git-scm.com.
Right click on Apps or Library “Files” to display a context menu which includes many common Git commands.
These are all disabled until you download and install Git from git-scm.com. (Be sure to add the Git directory to your PATH. This is c:\program files\git\bin\" on my windows development machine).
I would also recommend you download and install SourceTree for managing your git repository. You can download this free from sourcetreeapp.com.
In Lianja after you “Git Init here” from the files context menu you can perform a variety of git actions by selecting them from the context menu. Alternatively, you can select “Git Gui” from the context menu.
The Lianja “Versions” workspace keeps versioned files for all edits you perform. You can restore from a previous version in the “Versions” workspace.
Git is a powerful version control system for Teams and individual developers. Its most powerful feature by far is “Branching” which allows multiple team members to create a new “Branch” of code, work on this and when its ready to be merged with the main codebase, use Git to merge it in and commit the changes to you code repository.
Git can work very nicely without a remote repository providing file versioning on a single developers PC. This is called “Local” Git.
