Very slow and not intuitive; it would be my last choice for version control systems.The UI is a little confusing at times and seems a little outdated. It needs a lot of improvement. It is suited for small projects and fewer number of projects. But if there are huge projects and many projects to be maintained in a portfolio, its a little hard to manage.

GitHub

GitHub is the best tool I've come across for collaborative code development (although it is also great for working on solo code development!). Working with many people on code is usually cumbersome, but with GitHub, it is relatively painless! Because GitHub is free, GitHub is a great choice when money is tight (but again, the free version of GitHub only allows the creation of public repositories). If money is not an issue, however, you can create private repositories for a $7 a month. Because GitHub is rather difficult to learn, I would recommend it to those who have an interest or previous experience in coding and computer science.

Pros

  • Overall strong user interface.
  • Overall layout and icons seem easy to follow and pickup
  • Merging interface - Easy to follow

  • Code search. Ability to find examples of other people using a library, property, etc. is invaluable.
  • Pull request ease of use is great, and ability to integrate with CI pr jobs and code coverage is a big plus.
  • Ability to easily do feature branches and merge.

Cons

  • Ability to zoom in/out for stream-view. We currently have many streams/substreams and unable to view the entire workflow. Zooming in/out would benefit.
  • Being a designer, I use Adobe Flash and SWF files. When updating the SWF files, Accurev does not see these files as being changed and you will be unable to promote. In order to push changes, you must totally rename the SWF file.

  • There are certain developers whose work I rely heavily on. I wish it was easier to browse and search all the repositories they contribute to.
  • I'd like to see more granular control of how I watch repositories that I don't own. If I choose "watching", I get notified every time something happens. I'd like to be able to choose what events I want to be notified about (new push, new tag, etc). I'd also like to be able to choose a digest notification where I get one email a day with the events I'm interested in.
  • It would be great if there was a way to automatically keep forks up to date. It has support for merging, so why couldn't a toggle to keep a fork updated with the upstream. That way everytime a commit gets pushed it would get rebased into my fork.

I give it this rating because I found an alternate application that is much more cost effective and quicker

- Easy to use compared to other version control software. UI interface makes it easy to use, as well as protects against making a major mistake by deleting code, etc.- UI looks modern.- Support for multiple platforms, which I assume will only get better with time.- Student benefits are awesome!- The size limitations on their repositories make sense to me. Not too crazy but realistic from a business perspective.

Alternatives Considered

Git is one obvious alternative. However, Git is leveraging the command line and has minimal interface. Developer must be acclimated with command line in order to use Git.

Bitbucket has an interface that is much uglier and much more confusing to use. The learning curve is therefore much greater with Bitbucket. However, Bitbucket allows for free private repositories for small teams, which is a huge plus, and if your team is small enough, that means it could mean a free git hosting service for you.

Return on Investment

  • We will be moving away from Accurev as it's not meeting our needs.
  • We have been using it for many years and it has supported our needs well for these years . But since our org is growing and the projects getting more complex and team size is increasing, this tool is not working out for us.
  • It's a little simpler to understand than GIT but still the slowness of the tool overall is an issue.

  • The ability to share, review, and edit code on an online platform for free is quite a positive impact on our overall business objectives. If you can utilize the platform properly, it can save your business quite a bit of money throughout any development process.
  • Another positive impact is the written documentation throughout the development process ... This saves an incalculable amount of time and money for future developers and projects ... proper documentation for existing or new developers can truly expedite the projects timeline.
