Git bisect

Go bug hunting armed with a binary search tree

2 minute read

When I started using git as my VCS I skimmed the docs and git-bisect caught my eye. I got acquainted with it rather quickly and have been using it regularly ever since. git-bisect is a little handy git sub-command typically used to quickly narrow down the commit where a bug was introduced in a code base. It uses a simple binary search tree algorithm (BST) to test out different revisions by parting the remaining search space in half.

Moving Gaia Sky to GitLab

In light of the new GitHub acquisition by Microsoft

GitHub to GitLab

I’ll shortly be moving the Gaia Sky repository from GitHub to GitLab (link here) due to the former being acquired by Microsoft. If you have cloned the repository and wonder how to update your remote reference, here’s what to do: $ cd path/to/gaiasky $ git remote set-url origin https://gitlab.com/langurmonkey/gaiasky That’s all it takes. All pulls from now on should be directed to the gitlab repo.
