How do we create a Git Repository?

We are trialing Fisheye but it wants us to connect to a Git Respository. We dont know what one of these are. Thanks.

Hi Simon,

Git is just another version control system, like svn is.

FishEye connects with any SVN, Mercurial, Git, or CVS repository.

FishEye does not require you to connect to a Git Repository specifically.

Cheers,

Hi Nick

Thanks for your response. When you say Fisheye does not require me to connect to a Git repository can we run Fisheye on its own (standalone) as an SVN for Jira?

Hi Simon,

I'm afraid Fisheye can't be used as a svn server. Take a look at http://subversion.apache.org/ (or http://www.visualsvn.com/server/ if using Windows) to set up svn server and repository. Once you do that you can easily use FishEye to search, track and visulise your subversion repository. You can also integrate FishEye with JIRA.

Alternatively you can consider using using different version control system like git. Then you can easily host your repository on http://bitbucket.org/ or, if you prefer to host it locally, use Stash (https://www.atlassian.com/software/stash/overview) for that purpose.

Hope that helps,

Piotr
