I’m a big fan of JKI VIPM, and I’ve been usen Source code control with labview for some years (First with mercurial and now with GIT). Following the good practices with SCC and LabVIEW I always check the separate compiled code from vi to avoid unwanted changes on Vis. In the other hand I’ve read that the performance of labview is better with the compiled code in the VI. Besides that the labview IDE does not allow you clear compiled cache of some of your vis, you have to delete all the compiled cache…When I have some compilation errors and I delete the compiled cache It takes a lot of time to open again the project… My question is… VIPM allows you to execute some code after the package installation (post-installation-action). Could it be a good idea to unmark the separate compiled code programmatically on each installed file (vi, ctl, class, lvlib… )?. Maybe I have to make this question in VIPM forums also, to check when is executed that post-installation-action, if it is executed before or after the masscompiling Thanks!!
So I spent much of the afternoon looking over postings here on Source Control Software and LabVIEW. I must say I came away discouraged. I've been programming LabVIEW for over 20 years in a single one technician lab and never really needed any stinking source control. Well now that's not the case. But thought I'd just read some posts, determine what everyone else likes and be done!!!!! That didn't work out for me ether... Seems nobody really likes source control after all. Or at least there are issues with just about every option. So here is my situation. I'm still the single labVIEW developer on a project. But the project requires a more structured source control environment. So I'm looking for source control that works flawlessly within LabVIEW and is easy to use, I'm Using latest versions of LabVIEW. Since most of the posts I read today are from years back, I'm hoping things have really improved in the last couple years and you guys are happy as a lark with your source control environment. If you could take a minute and tell me: 1. What type of source control software you are using? 2. You love it, or hate it? 3. Are you forced to use this source control because it's the method used in your company, but you would rather use something else 4. Pro's and Con's of the source control you are using? 5. Just how often does your source control software screw up and cause you major pain? Thank you in advance. Bob Harmon
As I've reported in the UI Tools support page, I've started migrating the open source code I still have on bitbucket (Mercurial-based repos) to Github. I didn't think that it might be worth a specific topic until @LogMAN mentioned it. Personally, I'm moving my code to Github in the process. I know there are some reports of Hg-to-Git transitions not going so well when using sub-repositories, so please share your migration experience if you've had to jump into some hoops to get it done! For all of you who still use Mercurial and host your open source and/or enterprise repos on Bitbucket, this blog post is worth reading:
Hi, I'm looking for some advice from anyone who has been using mercurial with LabVIEW. Firstly I have just been trying some branching and merging. After a merge, having been configured for merge using https://bitbucket.or...iew-integration I see some .orig files getting left in the repository. Is this a failing on LabVIEWmerge.exe to clean it up or is it the way mercurial works? I am interested in the DVCS camps because of merging. I currently use SVN, primarily as a lone developer. I like not having to maintain a separate central repo and the improved merging, primarily from the point of having sandbox branches. I like that in Git, if I have an experimental branch that doesn't work out I can delete it. Is there a similar workflow with bookmarks that can be achieved or am I going to end up with a load of bookmarks littered around the place? I liked that Mercurial integrates better with Windows and is a simpler way to learn DVCS than Git, but I do also like the look of branching in Git and think the extra flexibility may be a killer feature. That said my general opinion when you get these 'holy wars' is that there is probably no real difference between them, else people wouldn't be arguing so much over minor details! Cheers, James
