Best way to transfer project info to/from cloud? Git?

#1 Post by namastaii » Fri Mar 29, 2019 8:49 pm

Is git/github etc the best way to push code for your project whether it's working on multiple computers or with multiple people? Or is there something new I don't know about that is better at all?

Is there one that possibly lets you keep your code private for free? I'm assuming not. Usually free means open source

BitBucket lets you have private git repos but the free version has limited features.

GitHub has recently started offering unlimited free (edit: private) Git repositories as well!
With a restriction very similar to BitBucket's: you can only add up to 3 collaborators in free private repositories (so 4 people in total, including you). BitBucket allows 5 people in total in their private repos.

I prefer BitBucket myself in general, but now you really have the choice!

Craving for a slightly historical mystery VN with an unusual presentation? Some amount of psychological or folk horror? A bit of weirdness? I got you covered.

Bitbucket is nice and has a gui app that might be easier to use for you non technical members. It's free for small teams and supports private repos

I just knew there were alternatives to github and bitbucket but if github is offering a private repo for free then that's fine, I'm already used to the site and everything
Thanks for the input :) I don't even need collaborators for this project in general but I have two computers I work on and I felt maybe this was the easiest way to transfer OR I mean I guess I could just keep the game on a USB drive
