Open source and streamlined version control system that helps you track project history over time and to collaborate easily with others
Bazaar is designed to support Mac OS X, GNU/Linux, UNIX, Windows. In summary, Bazaar gives you fast, distributed revision control that "Just Works", supporting renames of directories and files smoothly.
Bazaar is designed to maximize the level of community participation in your project.
Bazaar branches can be published on any web server, and uploaded over sftp, ftp, or rsync. If you want the fastest possible network performance, there is a smart server.
Bazaar supports flexible work models: centralized like cvs or svn, commit offline, enforced code review when desired, and automatic regression testing.
Decentralized revision control systems give people the ability to collaborate more efficiently over the internet using the bazaar development model and have many other advantages.
When you use Bazaar, you can commit to your own local branches of your favourite free software projects without needing special permission.
NOTE: To use Bazaar in OS X Lion (10.7), you should change the default version of Python to 2.6:
defaults write com.apple.versioner.python Version 2.6
- Easy to use and intuitive:
- Only five commands are needed to do all basic operations, and all commands have documentation accessible via 'bzr help command'. Bazaar's interface is also easy to learn for CVS and Subversion users.
- Robust and reliable:
- Bazaar is developed under an extensive test suite. Branches can be checked and verified for integrity at any time, and revisions can be signed with PGP/GnuPG.
- Publish branches with HTTP:
- Branches can be hosted on an HTTP server with no need for special software on the server side. Branches can be uploaded by bzr itself over SSH (SFTP), or with rsync.
- Adapts to multiple environments:
- Bazaar runs on Mac OS X, Linux and Windows, fully supports Unicode filenames, and suits different development models, including centralized.
- Easily extended and customized:
- A rich Python interface is provided for extending and embedding, including a plugin interface. There are already many available plugins, most of them registered at http://wiki.bazaar.canonical.com/BzrPlugins.
- Smart merging:
- Changes will never be merged more than once, conflicts will be minimized, and identical changes are dealt with well.
- Vibrant and active community:
- Help with Bazaar is obtained easily, via the mailing list, or the IRC channel.
