TeamForge: An Essential Cog Driving CloudForge

Recently, we opened up our CloudForge platform to allow unlimited free TeamForge projects; previously only available to CloudForge Agile Enterprise subscribers. This alone represents a big leap forward in the functionality available within CloudForge: issue tracking, document storage, wiki, and discussion forums within a single platform integrated with subversion and Git. However, we also took this opportunity to make a few sizable changes in our implementation of TeamForge to better integrate TeamForge with CloudForge and improve your user experience. The first new feature that users will encounter is single sign-on (SSO) between CloudForge and TeamForge. Whereas CloudForge has been the administrative …

Beginning a CloudForge Git client using Thor and Interact gems

One of the advantages to blogging is the opportunity to play with and write about technologies that I don’t normally interact with day-to-day. This is especially true of many of the great gems available for Ruby. Building on Jack’s blog post about extending CloudForge via the API I decided to play with a few gems I haven’t had a chance to play with yet: Thor and Interact. gem install thor interact Thor is an awesome toolkit for building robust command-line interfaces (CLIs). It’s somewhat similar to Rake but provides more structure specific for DRY command-line scripting. It’s also an essential …

Ten Reasons to Upgrade Your Subversion Server

In the earliest days of Subversion Edge, when we were planning out the short and long term roadmap for the product, the one true release defining feature for the first release was an integrated web-based update feature.  We wanted to have a way to easily notify you of available updates and let you install those updates right from your web browser without needing direct access to the server itself. We were inspired for this feature by Jenkins, which has this feature and we loved from our usage of that tool.  We knew if we had a way to easily deliver …

Major New Subversion Edge Release Available

Subversion Edge 3.0 was released over the weekend. This is a significant new release with many new features, a brand new user interface and a number of refinements to the user interface and features.

The new UI is more than a fresh coat of paint, we took the new branding as an opportunity to overhaul the UI itself. The UI is now …
