GitHub is a great resource for developers of all kinds to control and document their development efforts. New projects sprout up on the platform at an alarming rate and for good reason: GitHub simplifies many complex aspects of distributed development and code safeguarding. However, despite the platform's incredible power, not
CI has taken the development world by storm since its inception, giving distributed teams a safer and much more cohesive means of organizing contributions to a shared codebase. However, as new tools are made available to support CI, teams and leaders must sift through them to find options that match
Git and GitHub can be tricky tools to master, but the better you get at using them, the more secure and consistent [https://blog.mergify.com/github-security-best-practices/] your coding work can become. Developers around the world leverage a number of Git and GitHub workflows to streamline their progress. Some of
GitHub Actions is powerful and allows you to run various workflows on your pull requests. There is an entire marketplace [https://github.com/marketplace?category=&query=&type=actions&verification=] of actions that you can use, reuse, and abuse. GitHub Actions became a defacto standard for many developer teams that want
There is an ever-present need for fast, efficient, and scalable automation tools in the rapidly expanding continuous integration and deployment space. Entire platforms have been built around the critical concerns of teams following CI/CD tenets [https://blog.mergify.com/what-is-a-ci-cd-pipeline/] to streamline their workflows better. These platforms simplify the
Merge queues are at the center of the value offered by Mergify. The freeze feature we announced [https://blog.mergify.com/announcing-merge-queue-freezes/] a few days ago gives our merge queues a whole new range of possible use cases. You can now make your queues follow your product development life cycle.
Merge queues are a core component of Mergify. We implement new features regularly to provide new use possibilities. Their core mechanics also need to be adapted to support such evolutions. While testing and ensuring that any pull request fits perfectly into the main branch, time is a dimension that can
Our merge queues have evolved along with Mergify. We've introduced more features to support more use cases. Today we are glad to introduce a new feature to expand even more possibilities. We designed a feature that allows engineering teams to freeze their merge queues to provide more control and security
Managing a project on GitHub has its challenges. For many, mastering the entire Git workflow alone is enough to keep them busy for quite some time. However, beyond the basics of pulling, merging, commenting, and rebasing, super important security details loom like specters on the horizon, threatening to eradicate your
A pull request makes communication, edits, and debugging more manageable through separate repositories that receive updates from the main repository. Enacting a pull request, though, can be time-consuming. Fortunately, developers can streamline the cumbersome process via pull request automation. Find out how you can expedite daily workflow through an intuitive
Continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) play an instrumental role in most modern software development processes, allowing teams to push critical changes and updates into production code without overlooking vulnerabilities. Both of these components of modern development workflows improve code quality while empowering teams to maintain a consistent release
Fine-tuning the software development cycle is an ongoing process. You can never perfect it, but you can make continuous improvements. Having a CI/CD best practice [https://blog.mergify.com/4-ci-cd-best-practices/] in place is one way to streamline the cycle and improve overall efficiency. What is CI/CD? CI/CD
There isn’t a universal formula for software developer efficiency. If there were, sprint cycles wouldn’t be so chaotic with the next deadline always looming like a dark cloud. There are, however, tried and proven strategies for maximizing efficiency in software development. Consider these implementations for your next sprint
Merging is at the core of the version control system Git's feature set. Git is a powerhouse for pushing code improvements and modifications from a local work environment to a remote production server or public repository. However, completing a seemingly simple merge can quickly become a chore if issues arise.
