When we use Visual Studio 2015 or 2017, we see the Git feature is provided by default. At least, we do not need to install Git separately, Git can be installed with Visual Studio together. When new cross platform supported Visual Studio Code came, we thought it will come with Git together by default. But actually it is NOT. At least, in current newest version 1.19.3.
I realized it was some different when I loaded local project to Visual Studio Online in Visual Studio 2015 compared with using Visual Studio 2013.
The following is the process of how to load a project onto VS online in VS 2015:
I was involved in CMM development management system in a IT giant company before, I am not sure whether the CMM name is still called CMM, but I personally felt the CMM management was really good for big company. But for some small businesses, if they want to provide faster response to customers (actually this should be the best method which a small business can use, which could compete with any bigger company ), for example, customer needs a running system urgently, or they need a real solution for fixing some problems quickly, development team can provide them a light-weight version earlier, during customer uses the earlier version, developers can keep on adding new features, making existing features stronger, and fixing bugs “on the fly”, this kind of development could be called as Agile development management.
Before we were using AnkhSVN plugin in Visual Studio, but sometimes we got unknown issues when we have multiple team members, so later we changed to VisualSVN plugin, we feels the new one is more stable.
Here is a sample which about how to add a project to SVN server using VisualSVN plugin in Visual Studio 2013.
All steps suppose you have installed VisualSVN plugin.
1: Right click the solution name in Visual Studio 2013, select “Add Solution to Subversion…”:
I have introduced AnkhSVN, which is a SVN plugin for Visual Studio. But I just realized I never gave some real steps which about how I used this plugin.
Sometimes, if I spent longer time to write code, I found I forgot to how to add a new project to SVN server using AnkhSVN. So this is the first thing which I want to write down it:
This is the first time I meet Microsoft Visual Studio Online Service down, I could not connect to my VS Online Projects, they might call it is User Hub. Some of my source code are on VS Online.
When I tried to login the VS Online account, I could access Visualstudio.com home page without problem, but could not access user hub, got the following error sometimes, or just a timeout message:
Visual Studio 2013 does not provide Git Tag function before Update 2, current the Visual Studio 2013 update 2 is still not formally released but just a RC release, so there are lots of developers are still using old Visual Studio 2013, which can not add git tag using Visual Studio 2013 directly.
So, we have to use Git command line.
Here I do not want to talk about install 3rd party Git command tools or related security settings, what I want to below is that I suppose you have done the some pre-settings things, if you did not, check here first, you must done those settings and installations before you read below content.
Sometimes we used other people’s computers to write code, and we set our own TFS or Git account information to download or upload our code. so before we leave, we should remove our TFS (Team Foundation Server ) or Git account information from that computer.
Let us try to do by following below steps:
1: Select the menu “TEAM” –> “Disconnect from Team Foundation Server”, this will disconnect all your local repositories from remote TFS server (Visual Studio online):
If your friend or team member invites you to join his project which is on Visual Studio Online, you will connect his online project using Visual Studio 2013.
If you create a new project, and want to use Visual Studio Online to control your source code, for example, use Git which provided by Visual Studio Online, using the following steps, you can get the connection between your local project and remote Git very well:
1: Create a new project in Visual Studio Online, and set the source control to Git (actually it is up to you here, you can select other option here, but this blog’s sample is using Git);
