DevOps Classroom series – 01/May/2020

Fourth Area of Git

  • To Collaborate between developers, we need code to be hosted Preview
  • Code can be hosted by any git server software/provider
    • Gitolite
    • GitHub
    • GitLab
    • BitBucket
    • Code Commit
    • Azure Source Repos
  • Git to manage this will have a fourth area called as remote-repo Preview
  • Sending the commits to the remote repo is called as push and getting the commits from the remote repository is called as pull.
  • If you don’t have a remote repository yet, but you have local repo then we would add a remote repository to local
  • If you have remote repository and you want that code to local system then we perform clone
  • Default Remote-repository will have a name which is origin Preview

Scenario: You have a local repo and now you have remote repository created and want to send all the changes to remote repo.

  • Connection between local and remote can be acheived by a command
git remote add --help # To know options
git remote add 

Preview Preview

Scenario: A New Developer wants to get the code from remote repository

  • In this case as mentioned earlier, we need to use clone
git clone <remote-url>

Preview Preview Preview

Scenario: Move all of the code from one repository to other repository

  • It is all about adding a new repository and pushing the changes from any developers machine
git remote add <newremote> <newremoteurl>
git push -u <newremote> <branch-name>


Scenario: Multi Developer UseCase


  1. Developer who is pushing the code to remote repository needs to be on latest version, so you have to do a pull before you push your changes.
    • Best Practice: Get Periodic Updates from remote using pull operations
    • Steps Preview Preview
