Git is my buddy: Effective Git as a solo developer

We often think of Git in the context of collaborative development, but it is useful as a solo tool as this author aptly describes. I have a few solo Git projects:


  • GitPLM
  • ops files (Ansible scripts, etc)
  • Simple IoT (although there have been some contributions, it is still largely a solo project)
  • /etc directories on some servers
  • and there are many more

You don’t even need a remote server or Git repo – simply type git init in any directory and go.
