How to get started with codeplex?

Hi, I am new on codeplex. It feels so different from github which I usually use for versioning.


How to check out? How to commit?...

Codeplex offers access to the code through a number of repository "interfaces", such as Subversion, Visual Studio Team Explorer and Team Explorer Everywhere. You should be able to find access information on the right side of Source Code page.

Personally I use TortoiseSVN, a Windows shell extension which makes it possible to right-click a folder and download contents from a repository to that location. From there it's the just the usual Copy-Modify-Merge procedure.

This page states that you should be able to work locally with git, if you'd like to do that. I haven't tested this though, so you're a bit on your own here :o)

I have worked with Subversion as well. So git isn't the only thing I want to work with. Subversion works fine for me.

I wanted to try git-svn, but it doesnt work. When I write in command line:

git svn clone --username mirontoli

I get:

Initialized empty Git repository in /home/mirontoli/Dokument/gitsvntest/svn/.git/

And nothing more happens.


How to do, sebols ? :-)

some commands good to know:

git commit -am "comment"

git svn dcommit (to commit to svn)

if errors on modified but not committed files:

git reset --hard

git svn rebase (corresponds svn update)
