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

Pros

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!

Cons

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.

--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

Ease-of-use

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.

Pros

BitBucket is the software suitable for any types of businesses which use programming in their work. It does not matter what type of code you write and for which reason, in any case, there is always a chance of making mistakes and depending on the speed and timeliness of their solving are determined the results of the realization of certain projects. Your team may also collaborate through this program and synchronize their work much more effectively. So it is extremely recommended for the business that I mentioned above to increase the results.

Cons

The way of implantation your code in the program for checking is not the easiest process because of not enough abilities of possible integrations and that is why sometimes working with this software may take quite a lot of your and your programmers time.

The most valuable feature of Bitbucket for me is that it offers private repositories for free (up to 5 team members) and supports Git LFS to keep bigger files when necessary

Cons

Setting up exclude files for git is a pain. Too often I'd pull setting or cache files that were not supposed to be in the push. While this is not a problem specific to bitbucket, it would be nice if they provided some sort of support or tutorial about setting up your exclude file

Great for source control.

Pros

Easy to import source using GIT. Links to several other products for simple source control. We use Source Tree, which allows us to upload and download latest versions, do updates, sync files, etc.

Cons

There really aren't any Cons for this product. It works well with everything. I guess one con would be that the interface could use an upgrade. Old school looking.

Nowadays working as a team is always a very good way to be able to move forward and grow, but often it is a pain to make headlines, but with this platform you avoid the majority of code compatibility problems.

Pros

The fact of working as a team without overwriting your team code until the revision is finished is a great advantage in terms of saving development time.

Cons

Has a rigorous way in which you must play to work as a team, there is no general methodology in terms of publishing your code or making a mixture of it, only that you must be careful how to version or branch your project.

Easy Coding

Pros

It's so easy to use, once you understand GIT - or if you have a GUI that will do the GIT for you. Bitbucket keeps all our projects managed, making PR's is easy, merging and managing is easy. Our project would probably be lost a hundred times over if it wasn't for BitBucket.

Cons

The only con is the learning curve, but that's mostly do do with GIT. Also this is an Atlassin product now but they seem to run separately from one another. It would be nice if BitBucket was incorporated into Jira better.

very useful truth, I saved the necessary time in terms of the rapid development because sharing the codes worked in the divided sections and at the end we put together the code that is comforted.

Pros

I love the fact that you can share your repositories with your team or have your private repository, in which you can visualize and work in real time with your team sharing codes.

Cons

Limit the use of repositories with users who are in your same environment or team, you must learn to adapt to the environment because it has a defined methodology.

Pros

Bitbucket is easy to use with Git, it has a great dashboard to show you activity in your repositories and is more friendly to private repositories than other competitor offerings. Also, the service is almost never down and you'll always be able to access your repositories. Bitbucket has plenty of integrations prebuilt and their support is very responsive as well. I find it a very great alternative to the most popular git SaaS.

Cons

Bitbucket does not allocate clear lines of code for which the only indentation changes. This makes it difficult to view some queries since large blocks of code can be marked as changed, this makes us spend a lot of time looking at the code, not writing it.

Pros

The platform is easy to use and has a pretty nice interface. Another thing I really like about this application is the large database of integration tools. The platform allows you to use the maximum history of file changes. Excellent, competitive version of the control platform. helps to increase efficiency by significantly reducing the time it takes to migrate from the developer, saying that their code is complete, and actually reducing their code to the main branch through easy-to-use code validation tools.

Cons

Do not like that you can not add more employees as reviewers. When the file in the merge request is considered to be collapsed by default because of its length, the number of additions and exceptions will not reflect the actual total value, creating some inconvenience.

I love that being in the cloud and being able to use my repositories from anywhere is ideal to create private and public repositories without being governed by a limit, it has a very good interface and allows to work comfortably, it is perfect to have the codes of more orderly and documented way.

Until now I have no complaints about this powerful software, despite not being as popular as Github is in all respects.

It helped a lot in my early years of coding but eventually It was not enough for a growing team which I am a part of it.

Pros

Bitbucket or Github. This is a decision every developer team needs to make. If you use other Atlassian products, Bitbucket is the way to go. It is easy to integrate with other Atlassian products and it has a feature to import repositories from GitHub.

It is also a little cheaper than GitHub. However it might change according to your needs.

I personally used Bitbucket for a while but we changed the tools we used in work so I switched too to preserve consistency.

Cons

One thing I don't like about Bitbucket is that it is not stable as Github. Sometimes it slows down and you push a little hard to speed up the process.

If you're not familiar with GIT systems it's a little confusing at first, I highly recommend that you make use of the web-interface and then use Source Tree for your Windows computer.

BitBucket is great. Their account management between projects is lovely, and something I wish GitHub would get home. I have one account, attached to several teams (my primary organization, my freelance, and my personal). It makes managing repos much easier to keep track of, transfer, add new organization members, just fantastic. It has all everything you could want it in basic git management, and the interface is slightly easier to use than GitLab or GitHub with none of the downtime issues of the former.

Cons

My only complaint is that a lot of major third-party Git apps don't FULLY support bitbucket you can absolutely use various GUIs, they just don't have the same deep account integration they do with Github. But that's more on the app developers than BB.

Honestly, there's not much to ask for in the free version for such a good tool. However, it would be a bit better if the member count can be increased to 10 instead of 5 since many of the non-profit small teams might have 5-10 members.
