Getting Started with CollabNet GitEye

Enterprise Agile Planning

We released GitEye a couple weeks ago.  See my earlier blog post Introducing CollabNet GitEye if you missed it. This is a followup blog post that is aimed at new users and should help get you started using GitEye as your Git client. I have created three initial videos that walk through different aspects of using GitEye.  The videos are all short, just a few minutes, so you should be able to just watch the videos you need. For example, the first video shows how to setup an SSH key. If you do not need help with this, or do not use SSH you can just skip it. With that out of the way, here are the videos.

SSH Key Management

This video shows how to create a new SSH key pair using GitEye as well as how to upload the public key to GitHub. If you are using another Git service that has a web interface, such as CloudForge or TeamForge, the instructions would be identical. You would simply paste your key into a different service.


Managing Git Repositories

I started off with the SSH video because if you want to access a service like GitHub, you probably want to use SSH, or will need it eventually. So I figured I would introduce SSH before moving on to cloning repositories. This video shows how to bring your Git repositories into the GitEye client. It covers cloning repositories from a variety of different services such as GitHub, Gerrit, CloudForge and TeamForge. It also shows how to bring your existing Git repositories into GitEye.


Window Management

I thought this would be a useful topic for all users. It is less about Git, and more specifically about GitEye and how you can arrange the windows within GitEye to your liking.



Hopefully you found this post useful and it will help you to get started using the GitEye client.

This is the first time I have created and posted videos to the blog, so I would appreciate comments and feedback on how this works. Do you prefer this over text and screenshots? Was the quality OK? I made the videos using the Quicktime recorder that is built into OSX and I just used the built-in microphone of my Macbook. The audio seems OK overall, unfortunately, you can hear my laptop fan kick in by the end of each video. I did not find it distracting when listening to the video over computer speakers, it might be worse if using headphones.
