Code Reviews and Merge Requests

Posted by rs picture rs on Fri 17 Oct, 2014 06:57:01 +0000

One of the most waited for feature on our platform has been code reviews. We’ve just implemented this using Merge Requests.

If your development workflow follows the Branch per feature/release and Merge model, then this will work extremely well for you.

All you have to do is head to your repository’s Merge Requests sub-tab and create a new request from there. Our platform will then show you the incoming changes, allow you to comment on it and even give you an option to do the merging for you.

The full user guide with screenshots is on our documentation site:

https://xp-dev.com/docs/user-guide/repositories/merge-requests.html

You can get email notifications whenever someone creates/updates a Merge Request or even comments on it. This is managed from your account’s notification subscription page:

Even if you don’t use the Branch per feature/release and Merge model, you could potentially mark a dummy branch from where your changes are due to start, and use that branch as the *Target Branch in your merge request.

Please do bear in mind that this is just a beta release and only available for Git & Mercurial repositories. It is available on all accounts, both, paid and free.

Do give it a try, and let us know if you have any issues or feedback. We’ll be iterating over this quickly over the next couple of months, so, it will improve over time.
