Avoiding Git branching models
There are several Git branching models (strategies) from very basic to complex. I asked ChatGPT what reasons might lead developers to avoid Git branching models – apart from ignorance. It provided several valid points, which I have decided to share along with comments and examples from my own experience.
Flow's action decision tree
Advancement in branching models is mostly deterministic. That's why the term 'flow' often appears in branching model names. Internet Guru Flow is a CLI tool for developers designed to automate that flow.
Merging branches with Flow
In accordance with typical Git branching models, Flow defines key branches, feature and hotfix branches, and individual major branches. Flow helps developers keep track of those branches and their mutual relations.
Handle Changelog with Flow
A good changelog is a quality indicator of well-managed software. Flow is a command-line interface (CLI) tool designed to help follow a branching model and advance through it. Among other things, Flow helps maintain the changelog.
Version handling with Flow
Version numbers play a crucial role in branching models. Flow is a command-line developer tool to maintain software projects compliant with a branching model. Additionally, Flow offers robust version handling and ensures that version numbers are always in compliance with the model.
Maintain a branching model with Flow
Software development is a continuous process. Maintaining a branching model can be time consuming. That's where Flow comes into play. It's a command-line developer tool that automates tasks of maintaining and advancing a project on common Git branching models.
