Git is a fast, scalable, distributed revision control system.
Git is a popular distributed revision control system heavily used by open source projects and companies of all sizes.
Review Board and Git work well together, whether hosted on a service like GitHub or hosted in-house in a company network. We use it ourselves in the development of Review Board.
RBTools makes it simple to post code reviews against Git right from your command prompt, like so:
$ rbt post Validating commits... Uploading commits... Review request #2 posted. https://reviewboard/r/2/ https://reviewboard/r/2/diff/
Made some changes to your code, and want to update your review request? That's as simple as running:
$ rbt post -u Validating commits... Uploading commits... Review request #2 posted. https://reviewboard/r/2/ https://reviewboard/r/2/diff/
We have a whole guide on best practices with Git that goes over all the ways you can make Git and RBTools work for you.
To get started, download Review Board and RBTools. Once installed, follow our documentation on configuring repositories and posting changes for review.
