Synced with a
Mainline Repository

Native Git

All the power and flexibility of Git without compromise:

  • Completely disconnected DVCS workflow developers love
  • BYOG – bring your own Git clients and extensions
  • In-place branches, stashing, rebasing and other advanced features
  • Push your code to share and collaborate when ready

Repo Admin

GitSwarm provides the Git management features people have come to rely on:

  • Create projects and assign members
  • Code snippets help avoid common errors
  • Git hooks for validation and automation

Total Security

Keeping your intellectual property secure is easy with GitSwarm:

  • Project visibility controls
  • Protected branches
  • A wide range of permissions

Pull Requests

Pull requests have become a standard workflow, so GitSwarm allows:

  • Repo forking for your own private copy
  • Merge/pull requests for sharing and returning code to others
  • Push for review, comment, and approve via web


Easy oversight of projects through helpful graphs:

  • See commit progress
  • Recognize top contributors
  • Visualize branching history

Issue Tracking

Issue tracking makes it easy to start and follow a unit of work:

  • Assign them to the right developer
  • Associate with a development milestone
  • Dashboards to review issues

Git-Powered Wiki

Keep important project information easily available and up to date with a Git-powered Wiki:

  • Clone the entire contents for local editing
  • Create, edit, and link pages in an online editor
  • Leverage markdown for simple, elegant output

Synced with a Mainline Repository

For large teams, integration within Helix automatically mirrors work so all Helix teams can collaborate across boundaries:

  • Share code and content across teams
  • Cross-repo visibility and tracking
  • Easily create narrow clones of a larger repo
  • Create a "trunk" to power continuous delivery
