Introducing Sun Yiyi’s Git Source Control Provider for Visual Studio 2008/2010


As teams become further and further separated, centralized source control systems like Microsoft's Visual SourceSafe and Team Foundation Server quickly lose their appeal. In their place many developers have turned to distributed source control systems. The most popular one amongst .NET developers seems to be Git, which was originally created by Linus Torvalds for Linux kernel development.

One problem with Git is that it is predominately command-line based. While .NET developers are quite capable
of working with the shell, most get quite annoyed when forced to leave the IDE for routine tasks. This is why
Sun Yiyi's Git Source Control Provider an important part of Git adoption. Sun Yiyi writes,

As a Visual Studio user, I would like to see files status in solution explorer. Otherwise I just don't have the
feeling that the files are controlled by any source code management system. We are so used to see this
when working with SourceSafe, Team Foundation Server, Subversion or even Mercurial. We want the
similar experience with Git. I couldn't anything on the Internet, so I decided to make one myself.
