BitBucket: 10 million users
BitBucket is celebrating an important milestone – 10 million registered users. With 28 million repositories and 3.5 million build minutes every week, BitBucket is a vital tool for many teams.
I am (and have been) a member of several teams and projects, which heavily rely on BitBucket (and BitBucket pipelines) for their day-to-day operation.
Happy 10 million milestone, BitBucket! Keep it the great work!
GitGuardian API Security Best Practices
The team behind GitGuardian, a tool that helps developers to keep credentials and other secrets outside of the source code, shares their documentation for the API security best practices.
The cool bit about their documentation is that it covers both how to avoid the issues and how to solve them if they happened.
gita – manage multiple git repositories
gita is a command line tool to manage multiple git repositories in parallel. You can easily check the status of several repositories, pull, push, commit, and so on.
This is a nice alternative to how we are handling things at work, with hundreds of repositories all around, but with a lot of overlap between them too. For us, a custom set of scripts works pretty well, with a combination of a powerful terminal emulator. Terminator, for example, provides handy functionality of split screen view, with grouped terminals, where multiple screens can be easily updated with a single command input.
GrumPHP – PHP quality control tool
GrumPHP is yet another quality control tool for PHP. But unlike a million other – PHPUnit, PHP CodeSniffer, and the like – this one is more of a tying knot. GrumPHP integrates via git hooks. It runs one more of the other tools, making sure that the changes you are committing are up to the par.
The support for other tools is excellent. You’ll find anything from the basic unit tests and coding style checks to commit message formatting and content, Robo tasks, and even custom shell scripts.
