Git Success Stories and Tips from Ceph Creator Sage Weil

Filed under
Development
Interviews

Git has changed the way that software is built -- including the Ceph open source distributed storage platform, says Ceph Creator Sage Weil. Ceph has used the Git revision control system for seven years, since it switched from SVN. It has changed the project’s work flow and how they think about code.

“Instead of thinking in files and lines, you think in flow of changes. Instead of having a single repository that everyone feeds from and into, everyone now has their own repository, their own branches. The meaning of branch changed,” said Weil, Ceph principal architect at Red Hat. “Everything just fell in place, as if the people who designed it really knew software development at scale.”

Puppet's dozens of Git repositories see new code commits every day from more than 200 people, says Michael Stahnke, director of engineering services at Puppet Labs. And he personally uses the open source revision control system several times a day.

“I can’t think of another tool that changed the way I work, in a positive way, more than git,” Stahnke said.

In this Q&A celebrating Git's 10-year anniversary this week, Stahnke shared why Puppet Labs uses Git, their Git success stories, and his top pro tip for using the tool. For more in our “Git Week” series, see our interviews, below, with Git creator Linus Torvalds, and project maintainers from KVM, Qt, Drupal, and Tor.

Tor, the free and open source software for anonymous web communications, has been using the Git revision control system for more than six years. The tool is so ingrained in the project's development that Director and Chief Architect Nick Mathewson's daily work flow is built around Git, he says.

“Git's the eighth version control system I've had to use, and the first one I've seriously trusted,” Mathewson said. “Many thanks to the Git developers for all their hard work.”

  • Birdtray: Thunderbird Tray Icon With New Email Notifications For Linux (Firetray Alternative)
    Birdtray adds a system tray icon for Thunderbird email client on Linux (Xorg), which shows the unread email count. Besides this, Birdtray supports snoozing new email notifications, configure for which accounts / email folders to notify of new emails, and more. FireTray and other solutions to add a tray icon for Thunderbird that displays an unread email count stopped working with Thunderbird 60. Birdtray checks the unread email status directly by reading the Thunderbird email search database, which makes it immune to Thunderbird API changes. As a result, Birdtray is a great Firetray alternative that shouldn't break on Thunderbird updates.

Open Source 3D Printing and Open Source MIDI Foot Controller

  • Open Source 3D Printing: Exploring Scientific and Medical Solutions
    3D Printing is not a new thing to hear about. It is a very popular industry right now that began in the early 80s. But how different is Open Source 3D Printing from proprietary designs? How does this affect its applications in Science and Medicine? Let’s read on.
  • Finally, An Open Source MIDI Foot Controller
    MIDI has been around for longer than most of the readers of Hackaday, and you can get off my lawn. In spite of this, MIDI is still commonly used in nearly every single aspect of musical performance, and there are a host of tools and applications to give MIDI control to a live performance. That said, if you want a MIDI foot controller, your best bet is probably something used from the late 90s, although Behringer makes an acceptable foot controller that doesn’t have a whole bunch of features. There is obviously a need for a feature packed, Open Source MIDI foot controller. That’s where the Pedalino comes in. It’s a winner of the Musical Instrument Challenge in this year’s Hackaday Prize, and if you want a MIDI foot controller, this is the first place you should look.
