I'd like to see how many folks in the TI Community use github, either for personal or professional use.

I agree with @arcadeshopper, merges tend to be a bear, unless they are automatic, at least for me.

 

That said, it's unclear if the poll is:

 

1) how many people use online version control in general

 

or

 

2) How many people use github.com versus gitlab, bitbucket, or other options

 

It's probably not: 🙂

 

3) How many people use online source control as opposed to a offline set of repos

or

4)How many people use source control at all

 

As for me, I have used source management for many years, standing up SVN long ago on the main home Linux server and periodically publishing tarballs/ZIP archives of my working files.  But, since I release almost all of my projects as open source anyway, tools like github are attractive as they automate some of these things and make it easier to be transparent about project efforts.  For some projects that I don't share publicly, I use bitbucket, mainly because at the time they allowed private repos for a lower cost.

I use Github only to preserve source code for projects that I’m interested in. For example I’ve forked Ralph’s FinalGrom project to keep a copy for myself.

The reason I posted the poll, is I wanted to get a feel for how many people use a source code control program (personally or professionally).

 

Phase two, I'd like to find a number of people who would like to participate in writing a small game.

That would serve as a proof of concept, of joint TI collaboration.

 

The not fully formed plan would be something like this...

Each person gets assigned a small section of code.

We jointly check code in and out.

 

To keep it simple, something that uses text-ish code - basic/xb/assembler.

Dev's would be able to pick an engine - something that uses files in a directory would be great.

   A few simple tools might be needed for file transformation.

 

For far to long, TI development has been lonely work. Beery Miller, tried to spur joint development by making MESS images available of his current development with tools and source code, that was a great advance.

 

But I think now, many Dev's would like to (and DO!) break out of the dev environment presented by a TI or Geneve, where the TI and Geneve just become a target.

I know I'm a very big fanboi of VS Code with language specific plugins.

 

But this is a topic for a different post!

I use it for my SQL projects.

 

But I hat when it is used for things that could just be a ZIP file....

I voted yes to 1., did not enter anything on option 2.

I use github for downloading stuff that is hosted there, when needed.

Not sure just downloading stuff counts as "using it" like the poll is asking, but too late to take back my vote now ;-).

I don't know if it counts as proof of concept, that's what we did for the megademo. There's already a shipped product that did it! ;)

 

Wish you luck though! Collabs lead to fun things.

Sweet. This will probably develop into something much larger I presume. I've always thought about this, of course I'm not a participant because I'm not that good, yet! But one day for sure, I hope.

Good luck team TI!
