git this: fossil rocks [Fri, 04 Nov 2011 02:19:53 +0000]
I'll keep this short.
For me version control is just zipping up files after I make a change and then versioning the ZIP files via filename.
But I probably should look into version control of some sort. But I want something easy to learn.
Git [http://git-scm.com/] seems all the rage these days, but honestly I'd have to read the documentation a few times to learn it properly ... and that ain't happening. Also, it's more than I need given that what I'll be working on are very small projects.
But I really think Fossil [http://fossil-scm.org] is very promising. It's super easy to learn and the built in web interface [http://fossil-scm.org/index.html/doc/trunk/www/webui.wiki] - replete with a Wiki and ticketing system - is pretty sweet.
I'll still be zipping up my files, but I think they'll probably be making their way into Fossil repositories from now on, too.
... and as for the blog title, it's a bit of a play on words of course. Did you "Git" it? Do you "dig" Fossil like I do?
