Commercial license for SourceTree

Hello

As far as I can see, the only way of using SourceTree, is by creating a bitbucket / atlassian user. SourceTree uses that login to message home every time you start it.

Question 1: Can you add as many users as you want, if you only plan to use SourceTree with your own git repo?

Question 2: Can you use SourceTree when offline?

Question 3: Is it possible to buy SourceTree, to avoid having to create an user and to be able to use it offline? The company I am working for is looking for a good GIT client and doesn't mind paying for it.

Hi Thomas! You don't need a Bitbucket account to use Sourcetree, but you do need an Atlassian account to register the product. 

Are you referring to users as in different people using Sourcetree? Ideally, every user will have a copy of Sourcetree installed in their machine/profile. This way, each of them will have a copy of the code you're working on and they'll be able to make changes using their account, this way it's easier to track who did what, and it's also safer because in case someone messes up with the code, you can always grab someone else's copy and continue working with it (since it's distributed).

You will be able to use Sourcetree when online, however, if you use it with Bitbucket or Github for example, you won't be able to perform some of the operations such as pull or push. You'll have to wait until you're back online to do so. 

 

I hope this clarifies your questions, Thomas. Let us know if you need anything else :)

Cheers,

Ana

I just want to confirm: Sourcetree is 100% free for commercial use?

Yes @MJL, Sourcetree is completely free, even for commercial use.

Have a good day!

@Ana Retamal I think you have changed the terms - now Sourcetree seems to require Bitbucket account. At least I just created one, just to be able to keep using Sourcetree.

I would also prefer simply buying a product over artificially getting it "free" by claiming an account I don't need. Simplicity, please.
