In Development – OI GIT

OpenInsight Git is an interface from OpenInsight to the Git source code management system.

Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.

You can read more about Git on its web site at

OpenInsight Git has been designed to be as transparent as possible.  There are rules that you will need to follow, but for the most part there are many benefits to using source code management software like:

1. Backup of your source code
2. Version control
3. Change control
4. Collaboration with developers remote to your location

OpenInsight Git’s philosophy is simple.  It mirrors your OpenInsight source code, stored procedures, windows, messages, help, etc. as text files in Windows directories.  From there, the Git source code management system (SCM) does the rest.

    1. Hi Paul, I’m afraid that I simply took this from the recent RevUS newsletter and I’ll be learning more about this as we get closer to the version 10 release. However, I would not be surprised if Mike covers this in a little more detail tomorrow at the RUG in London.

    1. I don’t believe that this will be released until version 10. We have also had some good feedback and ideas for OI’s use of GIT, so I’m excited to see what Revelation provide in the way of support for GIT in version 10.
