Cloud and Server products are different products, and are diverging.

You won't get Server to look like Cloud for a long time - we don't know when (or if) Atlassian are going to move Server installations to more Cloud like layouts


Hi thanks for the anwser,


I guess one of the big things i need iis the "New File" button in the source page.


Do you know of anyway to get this in the server version ?

Personally, over the last two years I've found Bitbucket cloud & server are getting closer.  But the minor (and sometimes major) differences between them are a source of confusion and frustration.

There are some server add-ons you can install to narrow the gap a little:

Mohamicorp's paid add-on, "Power Editor for Bitbucket", should let you upload new files from your browser.

My own paid add-on, "Bit-Booster Rebase / Squash for Bitbucket" gives you the commits graph to make things a little more like cloud bitbucket.   While my add-on is paid, the commit graph it draws on the "commits" screen remains fully functional even if you never buy a license.

The free "Commit Graph" add-on is also worth checking out.  After installing it try clicking on the "Network" icon on the far-left menu.
