How to start working with a Git repository from TWS

In order to work with a Git repository right from The Welkin Suite, you need first of all to set up Git integration.

The Welkin Suite offers two ways to initiate a Git repository:

  1. for an existing solution,
  2. for a new solution during its creation.

Initiation Git support for an existing solution

First off, to have the ability to use all the possibilities of Git support in The Welkin Suite, you need to set up a new Git repo at a remove server (GitHub, BitBucket, etc) if you don't have such one. When this operation is successfully completed, return to The Welkin Suite and open a necessary solution. Then execute the following steps:

  • Select a solution node in the Solution Explorer.
  • Navigate to the Main Menu: Version Control ⇒ Publish in Version Control.
