Bitbucket Software


 

Bitbucket is a collaborative Git solution that allows users to review codes with pull requests. Users can have discussions with coders in the source code with inline comments. The software provides a multi-deployment option as it can be hosted in the cloud or on-premise.

Configuration as code enables developers to manage their own delivery workflows. Users can configure Bitbucket pipelines by adding a bitbucket-pipelines.yml file to the root of a repository. Bitbucket pipelines show build statuses automatically on branches, commits and pull requests.

Branch permissions provide limited access controls to team members, so that only users with knowledge of editing codes can make changes to the code. Users can analyze the changes in repositories with unified or side-by-side views while reviewing codes.

The solution integrates with other applications such as JIRA, Hipchat, Bamboo and trello. Support is provided via an online forum, email and phone. Pricing is per user per month.

can we have patch functionality in it to make more comfortable while working with local changes.

Pros

We can manage code and code branches for different environments like development mode or quality analyst mode . we can it while working individually or with team to have track of code and code changes.

Cons

if we are moving from one environment to other environment then we can see messed up code with branches and we can not generate log number against each commit.

Pros

It is one of the leading remote repository application for Version Control systems. It has pretty good integration with CI/CD tools such as Jenkins, CircleCI and Travis.

Cons

It doesn't highlight the change of code when there is an indent change in the code. It could be difficult sometimes to search your own repositories. You need to maintain the server if you have hosted Bitbucket on one of your own servers

This is another great version control repository that uses Git. Has a great UI for tracking code changes and really easy to setup repositories. And, works integrates well with jira as well!

It runs slow sometimes before but haven't been for a couple of months now. Also, 3 repositories for free is a bit low I think.

A Smooth and Savvy Git Repository -

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Value for Money

Atlassian Bitbucket is a smooth, intuitive, low-profile and very capable git repository. It functions exactly how you would want it to and can be considered a solid alternative, or addition to GitHub. The user interface and functionality have been markedly improved from previous versions, which were slightly less forgiving for newer developers. It was always a good product, and now it is even better, with continuous improvement and wonderful new beta features being added regularly. I love this platform and I'm anticipating the opportunity to test out the new features and see where they will go in the future.

Pros

Atlassian Bitbucket has a clean, user friendly interface. You can store full code, team projects, as well as code snippets, and search your code. There is support for large files. Bitbucket has easily accessible links with tutorials and tricks to get started, even at the very basic beginner level. It is fully collaborative for development teams with variable needs. The best advantage of this platform over GitHub is it allows for private code repositories in the free model. You can control access to your code with public or private repos, and even fine tune access control with additional rules and extensions on the premium mode. There are tons of excellent integrations, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Python, Visual Studio, Circle CI. and more. New beta features seem to be added regularly. The free model is great and the upgrades are reasonably priced. This is a well-rounded, excellently performing, continuously expanding code hosting platform that is well-suited to support your individual or team projects.

Cons

Previously, there was a slight learning curve in the processes, but this has been smoothed out. There are no real cons that I can think of, except that the open-source social celebrity aspects of GitHub are not a prominent feature here. However, if you are not looking for these aspects, you will likely be very happy with all of the features which are included to support your building endeavors.

Pros

--Version Control, Able to host the server locally, Able to make changes and revert on the fly.
--Easy branch management, merging and conflict reviewing. Integrates nicely with tickets in JIRA so I can see what ticket a commit is fixing, and click through to it.

Cons

No feature to search in the code which is a big feature left out. - its UI component source tree has too many issues with updates.

Bitbucket reigns in the Git chaos

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Bitbucket is necessary to keep some control over Git, which is by definition a free and open world.

Pros

Several layers of security and protection. I am able to restrict users and groups of users from projects. I can also restrict access to past branches to read only. The layers of security means that senior programmers cna push their changes while junior programmers must submit a pull request to have a senior level person review their changes prior to being incorporated.

Cons

Git in and of itself can be hard for people to learn and adapt to -- especially the senior level people who grew up with the storage locker mentality towards source control.

Great source code repository for small teams

N/A
Value for Money

Pros

Private repositories
Has everything for complete project management for very small teams, e.g Integrated wiki for documentation, trello - for task management, file repository for managing downloadable contents etc.
Choice of VCS system between git/mercural
Can add code snippet for sharing with other and for storing small pieces of code that are not part of the actual source code, e.g. deployment scripts etc.

Cons

Free tier users are not counted when number of users cross the allowed limit of 5 free users, e.g. if you are five users, you pay nothing, but if you are 6 or above, you pay for all users. This is limiting for growing teams and start ups as the cost per month shoots up suddenly.

It really integrates well for teams that use JIRA. We have used it for many years way before it integrated with JIRA and it managed to do just right for 5 users (the free plan). We are now a bigger company yet bitbucket fits right into our operation. It's just the right tool at the right price.

Cons

I really can't think of a Cons for this software. There are a lot of features and tools we don't use since we mainly keep our repositories and that's it.

It has lots of good feature like support for different kind of version control such as git, svn, mercurial. It has integration with JIRA so that we can create the branch as issue name which makes it easy to track the code change for each issue or bug. It also has integration with Bamboo a application building tool. Also, you can have as many as free private repository you want.

Cons

It is good for having the private repository. But it's web interface is not so good as compared to other like gitlab. UI is not much of interactive.

Bit-bucket is a great tool provide seamless integrating of tools like feature-request, issue tracking etc.
Working on Bit-bucket is comfortable and easy as one can almost do all of the possible tasks like merge discussions, conflict resolution, patch generation with the GUI provided and need to to go to command line.
Web-hooks can be easily integrated into the project.

Cons

Unlike GitHub there are not much public repositories so when we like to integrate some library or snippet of code from other repository we face some sort of inconvenience.
Also Less public repository means less project to contribute to. But i guess the working model care less for public open source sector and more about private organisation.

Pros

Bitbucket is the best repository management for business. It integrate well with JIRA as we can create branch as jira issue/ticket number. Code review is much better in this as compared to other version control systems.

Cons

It highlight the code change on indentation change which makes it difficult to see the actual code change. Other than this I don't complain about this product.

Easy to use and easily integrated with the production server for any kind of huge repository.

Pros

The one thing which I like about this product is it's UI which makes it more different from its competent product GitHub I guess. We as a team are using the subscription version of entire Atlassian Suit product and we are kind of very pleasant with the ease of using it and it's performance till now. Integration with the production and syncing with branches make it easy to handle with.

Cons

The one thing which I could think of is sort of not exactly liking but maybe can be worked upon is sort of controlling over the all the commits done for a particular repository with the UI thing itself rather than doing it with command-line.

Pros

I like the clean user interface on BitBucket. I am new to using GIT, but BitBucket is very intuitive to use and I think it is easy to work with. Even though some repositories can get pretty large and the operations you need to perform on them can be complex (merges, rebasing, etc.), BitBucket makes tracking these tasks easy. Also, I am rather new to writing code in a team environment (compared to individual projects that I did during school), but BitBucket has helped to make collaboration and sharing code with others simple.

Cons

There is no feature to request access to a repositories on BitBucket that I do not have access to. I usually have to ask my co-workers "who owns this repository?" and then send that person an email asking for access. It would be nice if requesting access was built in to BitBucket.

The main differentiator between BitBucket and GitHub is the fact that GitHub does not provide access to any private repositories on their free version where BitBucket gives you unlimited access to private repos - they do limit your number of users to five.

Git is git and bitbucket is the Git offering from Atlassian. We use it for all of our version control needs. We like it because it is Git. We also like the accompanying Sourcetree graphical UI which works with Bitbucket as well as other Git.

Cons

The downside is that it is Git. For those not familar with the concepts of git, it is a learning curve that takes some time. We run Bitbucket in the cloud version and you can't add the plugins which is frustrating.

Excellent tool for version control and error handling, allowing the integration between various tools and collaboration with teams, a great alternative that is worth trying.

Pros

When one is a software developer, it is essential that a version control tool be used to maintain the integrity of our code and avoid the loss of work and progress in the face of errors that arise, and here Bitbucket enters, an interesting alternative to the most used tools, its main attraction is that it allows you to choose git or mercurial to control the versions, offers excellent funconalidades for error control, you can integrate with Google Analytics, and its main strength is that it allows you an unlimited number of private repositories which gives you total freedom to upload as many projects as you want, you and your team can work at ease and enjoy this excellent tool.

Cons

Although I mentioned previously accounts with an unlimited number of private repositories, the disadvantage is that when the free versions of Bitbucket limit only 5 collaborators in each project and users who need a larger number of these will have to switch to a subscription plan .

* Often it takes sometime to load.
* Internal update is not happening for quite sometime.
* Downloading repository can be improved but when user have more than certain amount, "download all" option will help in those cases.
