    Simple Source Code Control

    Hi Guys,

    As my projects get bigger I am beginning to understand the need for source control. What I am looking for is the simplest way to manage this. I do not what a big product, just something simple and effective.

    Any recommendations?

    I use VS2008 prof edition but currently and testing 2010 and would like source control there too if I can.

    VSS is pretty easy to use and it integrates with VS as well.

    www.codeplex.com for 2010 since you will be able to use Team Explorer with 2010 Pro without having to purchase the outrageously expensive Team Edition and Codeplex provides Team Foundation Server support

    or

    http://code.google.com/projecthosting/ now and use Ankh http://ankhsvn.open.collab.net/ to integrate with VS

    All the above are free.

    I have only used Google Code with XCode on my Mac but have been pleased with it. You can make the project private and it has a good web interface to view your code anywhere. CodePlex I have no actual experience with.

    The down side of CodePlex is that it is intended for OpenSource projects:

    Your project must meet the following criteria:

    1. You must choose a license for your project (license resources: Open Source License page on Wikipedia)
    2. It must be an ongoing project (no "abandoned" projects)
    3. It must have source code (no non-software projects)


    If you discover a project which is not complying with these requirements, please report it using the contact us form.

    What licenses does CodePlex support?
    Project coordinators can select from a list of the following OSI licenses: Apache License 2.0, Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL), Eclipse Public License (EPL), GNU General Public License (GPL) v2, GNU Library General Public License (LGPL), Microsoft Public License (Ms-PL), Microsoft Reciprocal License (Ms-RL), Mozilla Public License 1.1 (MPL), New BSD License, and The MIT License. If your project requires a license that is not on the list, you can request a custom license using the contact us form.

    Re: Simple Source Code Control

    I would definitely recommend SVN for both simple and complicated projects. You'd need to use a free SVN server like this and a free SVN client like this. If you want something free to integrate SVN into Visual Studio as well, try this.

    Re: Simple Source Code Control

    Since you just want a simple to use source control, just use the VSS. Nothing funky and integrates into your visual studio environment. It is adequate for what you need.
