Git-Flow button in SourceTree

Hi, what does the Git-flow button do in SourceTree?

When do we use it?

What is the function behind the that button?

If someone can enlighten me with example, I would appreciate it.

Thank you.

Hi @joe_hui,

Git-Flow is a branch management strategy employed by some folks/teams. Sourcetree provides a UI to make it easier for those who choose to go that particular route. Here's a tutorial from Atlassian about the concept, though it describes the CLI usage, not ST.

Hi @bgannin , thank you for the response. Do you have any tutorial/documentation which describes how to use Git-Flow button in Sourcetree?

@joe_hui I did a quick Google search and found this old blog post. It's still relevant.
