Gephi migrates to GitHub

12 November 2011

We are happy to announce we finished the migration of our code from Launchpad to GitHub. All the code and bugs have been successfully transfered with the complete history. We can now profit from the best platform out-there and use Git, the fastest revision control system.

We hope you’ll find GitHub faster and easier to use than Launchpad. The team is already appreciating how easy it is to report issues and work together on the code. GitHub has more than a million users and will make the project more visible and ease external contributions.

Technically, we migrated our branches from Bazaar to Git (thanks to git-bzr) so the history is entirely kept. We also moved all our bugs with a simple script. We are still working on the details. If you see something wrong or missing on GitHub, please contact us or create an issue on GitHub. If you had some branches on Launchpad, you can find them on the GitHub repository. Let us know if you have questions. Contributors simply fork the repository and get started. We updated the documentation on the wiki. Consult the Developer Handbook.

Checkout code

Run
git clone git://github.com/gephi/gephi.git

Report issues

Simply go to the Issues tab.

Build in one step

Simply run ant at the root of the repository to build Gephi. The executable are located in the dist folder.

We made some improvements on the building process. Previously, Netbeans was required to build Gephi. We now integrates the platform directly in the source code so it’s not necessary anymore. It’s literally a one step process.

Please let us know your feedbacks and questions as usual on the forum.
