Github has changed a lot. While working mostly in Azure DevOps I haven’t followed all the development on Github. Now when I look at that, I am really amazed.
Private Repos for Free accounts
Well, for me it is not as interesting, because with my free account, I don’t see any harm having my labs public. But I know, some people used bitbucket for their smaller private repos.
I suppose it is the Azure DevOps Project concept that was copied to Github, a place for planning and having multiple connected repos.
For me the Github CLI is the best news. Being able, from command line, not only to git stuff, but also see and create issues, manage pull requests, repos, releases. That means more automation. I like it.
Also being able to work with gists is nice.
main instead of master
That’s brand new. The word “master” is offensive to some people. (sources: Github, statement, zdnet).
So my test repo is one of the first ones that gets “main” as its main branch. Well, that’s not wrong at all. It connects it back to the olden days of TFS, too :)
