Bitbucket is often viewed as second best compared to GitHub. And while I love GitHub dearly, I have to say that it’s not true. It’s as good as GitHub. Sure, it doesn’t offer all GitHub features yet (Releases, for example), but it does offer a few features of its own, which are not found in GitHub (Projects and Approvals come to mind).
With the recent advances in Atlassian Connect – an API integration layer – there’s been quite a few apps and services that extend Bitbucket beyond what GitHub users are accustomed to. Have a look at this Pull request guidelines for Bitbucket Cloud.
It looks simple. But it’s super handy and provides functionality, which is not as trivial as you might think.
