I wanted to try Sourcetree on my Win7 PC but ran into some issue when adding and testing a bitbucket or github account.
For every added account I get a message like this:
"The 'BR' start tag on line 6 position 30 does not match the end tag of 'FONT'. Line 7, position 3."
I am using the latest downloadable version.
What can cause this error?
Further digging shows that when trying to browse repositories, this error continues to show up. Even if I try to use a bitbucket account, with SSH selected, the built in Sourcetree repository browser fails to connect.
Would be nice to see some actual logging of what goes on.
In our case, we had a network proxy server that was demanding authentication before allowing traffic through. Since the Bitbucket API for giving a list of repos that the user can see/clone/etc is over HTTP, I couldn't even get a list of repos to show in SourceTree. Once I turned on proxy authentication with the proper credentials, then the error disappeared.
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
