My firm uses Git on Windows and as people here don’t like command line, we use SourceTree as a graphic interface.
However we have a problem with large binary files and therefore we are looking for a solution to this problem. I see that git-lfs works with SourceTree, which is great because it would allow people not to use command lines.
But git-lfs needs projects to be on github.
Is it then possible to use git-lfs and make the large binary files copy on a local remote server (like G:// ) instead of github?
Or if you have any other Solutions for Windows than git-lfs for this problem of stocking large binary file on a local remote server I would take it!
Thanks for the excellent work.
If you wish to host your Git LFS objects on a local server then Bitbucket Server will provide what you are looking for: https://bitbucket.org/product/server
Bitbucket Server versions 4.3 and later include an embedded object store for LFS objects: https://confluence.atlassian.com/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=794364846 and Windows is a supported platform: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BitbucketServer/Supported+platforms
You can obtain an evaluation copy to see if it suits your needs.
Also be sure to use SourceTree for Windows v1.8 or later as it includes Git LFS support: https://www.sourcetreeapp.com/update/WindowsReleaseNotes.html
Hi everyone and thank you for your answer!
@Johannes Kilian , according to this Topic: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/16394605 the last comment says that it "seems" to work, so that is why I try
@Ben Humphreys Thank you for your answer, I will give it a look and try. Also, if I've got a server (not local), could it be possible to use git-lfs with SourceTree?
Thanks for your response
My answer referred to SrcTreeWin 1.7.x - I wrote "seems" as I haven't tried it myself, but this is reported in https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/35771155
After just updating (to the awful looking - IMHO) SrcTreeWin 1.8.0, support for LFS seems to be available within SrcTreeWin (just saw the menu item)
