Recovering from the Git detached HEAD state

The introduction of Git as a source-code management system in 2005 fundamentally transformed the process of software development. Git allows developers to maintain a history of changes, or commits, to their code and revert to previous commits in seconds if something goes wrong. It makes collaboration easier by allowing branching to keep code for different features separate and seamlessly merging commits by various people.

Who Moved My Code?

We’re excited to launch our new integration with GitHub that supports GitHub Enterprise Server customers. This allows companies using GitHub Enterprise on their own domains to access key features in Rollbar that help developers fix errors faster. GitHub Enterprise offers a fully integrated development platform for organizations to accelerate software innovation and secure delivery.

Checking in on GitHub Container Registry

GitHub recently transitioned its support for container images from its original offering called Docker registry to a new one called GitHub Container registry. Besides the namespace change from to, it looks like a lot of the confusing aspects of the Docker registry have been re-worked into something that is a lot more intuitive.


GitLens for Visual Studio Code, and its Creator Eric Amodio, Join GitKraken

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Eric Amodio, creator of GitLens. I’m an innovator, leader, architect, and seasoned full-stack developer. I started developing GitLens way back in 2016 when I fell in love with Visual Studio Code and wanted to play with what was then newly released extension support. It all started with a simple question: could I add Git insights via CodeLens (hence GitLens) to any document? Which of course was yes, and a whole lot more.


WordPress + GitHub

If you’ve been building client websites for a while, you may remember a time before WordPress. A time when building websites meant creating every HTML page by hand. At some point, you probably decided that there were common features that every customer needed on their site, so you started using one customer’s website as the template for the next. Of course these days, WordPress is the underlying software for many modern websites, and there’s no need to re-invent core functionality.


Git vs SVN

If you’re writing or tracking code for a project you’ve likely heard of Version Control Systems, or VCS, also commonly referred to as source control. The primary function of a Version Control System is to host a project and track how it develops over time. With a VCS, developers can compare changes in files, track commits, propose changes, view project history, revert to old versions of the project, and more.


Git for Teams

You groan. Perhaps not audibly, but your eyes widen and then slowly shut with dread. After a lucky streak of merging feature branches without incident, you finally hit a Git merge conflict. Unsure of where to start, you sheepishly bring up Slack and direct message a plea for help. Maybe this has been you, or maybe you’ve just seen it happen. Either way, it means spending time untangling the code by yourself, or with the sympathetic assistance of another.

How we use Grafana and Prometheus to monitor the traffic of our many GitHub repositories

If you want to understand the popularity of your GitHub repositories, knowing the number of stars isn’t enough. GitHub understands this, and that’s why the team released traffic insights. Anyone with push access to a repository can view these insights, which include: full clones, visitors from the past 14 days, referring sites, and popular content in the traffic graph.
