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 -

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

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.

Zoho Projects integration may be thought of! as of now no such thing to link between these two.

I use Bitbucket mainly to store private repositories from projects of clients, so I haven't really used collaboration tools other than giving others access to some repos. For solo projects it's an amazing tool, with an easy to use interface and quick integration with git tools on desktop. It might also have a slight advantage over Github for hosting small projects, so it's a great service for small businesses that doesn't need all the additional collaboration tools that build over git repositories' native collaboration.

Pros

Private repositories available in free account.
Ease of use.
Tons of complementary tools from Atlassian, the parent company. Tight integrations with tools like Jira.

Cons

Collaboration and user interface aren't as polished as Github.

Pros

It has most features needed in a git based VCS. You can easily configure accounts, and sync them to an ldap server, AD, or even to Jira instances.
This gives good configurability with other Atlassian products, such as showing developer information in tracked bugs on Jira.
It also supports a few types of git flows - so you can define it in the common ways quite easily.

Cons

For large teams, it becomes expensive.
It is missing certain simple features. You can store signed code, but there is no way to see it signed on the server itself.

Pros

The licensing model for Bitbucket is great. I was looking for a free private Git repository and that's exactly what I found. Bitbucket is free to use for up to 5 developers with unlimited private repositories. This was great for what I needed. Competitors charged a fee for private repositories, but public repos were free. Due to the nature of the projects, private was required. Beyond 5 developers, the monthly charge is minimal for what you get.

Cons

Nothing so far. I've liked every aspect of Bitbucket.

Allows the team to work on the same projects at the same time and merge all code together.

Pros

The only pro I really need to give for BitBucket is that it works and it works well. If you're looking for something to manage your teams code and allow multiple people to work on a project at once. Then this is the software for you.

Cons

Like with anything that uses Git. Occasional commit and sync errors etc. Never BitBucket's fault though.

Great github alternative, in a way that you can say that its not an alternative at all but a must go.

Pros

We're a small team so we currently use the free version which is limited in terms of users. We don't have any issue at all and using the UI to create, merge pull requests & review the code is pretty straight forward.

I used Bitbucket several times on my software projects along with my professional career, and I really liked it. Never had problems with it.

Pros

On Bitbucket, is possible to create private teams and project. The possibility on add server keys on bitbucket is a differential that I have not yet found on others git solutions.

Cons

Sometimes, Bitbucket seems to be not that dynamic as other git solutions. Too many things on the dashboards, adding complexing kinds of stuff on screens that don't need. Maybe add some extra views with advanced settings is a good thing to do.

There are multiple things I didn't like about bitbucket. I would have liked it a lot more if I could have gotten it set up on my PC. I tried for 3 days trying to get it to work and access the groups project. I was the terrain artist for a video game and due to bitbucket not wanting to work on my pc, I got booted off of the team and replaced by someone else.

- Nice free plans.
- Free private repositories.
- Pipelining for CI/CD in the Cloud is nice.
- Trello integration.
- Has JIRA integration (I have never use it, sadly, but I like jira as well so I guess it is amazing :)
- Its own issue tracker is quite decent, too.

Cons

- Small community. The main reason I wouldn't recommend it wholeheartedly is its small community compared to GitHub.
- Less compelling profiles and home pages.

Bitbucket does the job, but it just barely squeaks by. There is so much more opportunity that it hasn't drilled into yet. They need to take note from other platforms and dumb things down a bit.

Pros

Bitbucket is a pretty good source control software. It's easy to integrate features into Jira and Confluence (if you are using those). It provides a clean interface for code merges and code pull requests. You can integrate a release plan into the software as well if you want to automate any of your release schedule.

Cons

Other source control platforms are just better, period. The amount of customization and team features that others have is just superior. Like a lot of Atlassian products, Bitbucket feels clunky and seems to be trying to solve too many problems, but not well. It doesn't allow for statistics for commit and user usage either. Bitbucket should stop over complicating things and go back to the basics of what users want.
