It’s no substitute for GitHub and the like, but I have a rather simple system that intercepts saveStackRequest, checks the date, and saves a new version with the date as part of the name. I also have a bmpVrsn routine that can be used to advance a letter during the day, so things like 200422b for the second version of a stack from today.
I did a simple presentation with handout code for this at last year’s developer conference. I can probably find them around somewhere. The current problem with GitHub and stuff is the lack of a text file based storage, although I know someone has an add-on for that. > On Apr 22, 2020, at 1:45 AM, Andreas Bergendal via use-livecode > <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > Hi everybody, first time posting to this list, so I hope I get it right… :) > > I need your wisdom on a slightly off-topic issue, though seen in the LiveCode > perspective: > I’ve never used git, but I want to start now. > > I’m working on several LC projects, some with co-developers, several with > commercial potential, so I need to get more professional with version control > and other benefits that come with git. > > I’ll educate myself on how to use it, but: Step one seems to be to select a > git host/system. > GitHub is the obvious giant, but is it the best for my needs? > > - I use LiveCode, obviously, so is any git service in any way more suited for > that? > - I’m not very familiar with using the command line, so I’d prefer a git > service that has software that handles that, as far as possible.
