New feature: Tags in Code

As Buddy, our mission is to make DevOps accessible to everyone by dragging it out of the terminal window. This also includes version control, the first step towards introducing automation to software development. Without version control, there would be no pipelines to take off the burden of manually building and deploying your websites and applications.

Putting the words into practice: our service spreads a visual interface over Git, allowing you to browse and run Git operations in your repositories. This week we expand the UI with a new element – tags.

What you need to know

You can find the tags in the Code tab:

The scope of activities to perform depends on the type of repository in the project. If you are using an external provider like GitHub or Bitbucket, you can:

  • view the complete list of tags in the project
  • jump to the tagged commit in the repository
  • compare the tag with other tags, branches, and commits
  • download the repository in the tagged revision

If you host your code on Buddy (a common practice for on-premises installations), you can also create tags and apply them to commits in the repository. This can be done from dropdown menus across the whole service – for example, on the currently viewed commit:

You can also remove tags from the same dropdown menus in Buddy-hosted repositories.

Buddy is 100% customer-driven. Let us know what integrations you need to take your automation game to the next level! If there’s a feature or integration you miss, talk to us on the live chat or drop us a line at support@buddy.works.
