    User-friendly, easy to scale, and it helps to fix problems with our code repository
    Pros and Cons
    • "The most valuable feature is the ability to fix a broken repository merge."
    • "For everyday use, I am more comfortable using the command line interface, rather than using SourceTree."

    What is our primary use case?

    We primarily use this for repairing a broken Git repository. I don't usually use it and others on the team, as far as I know, don't necessarily use it in the normal workflow, but it is pretty good when you have really messed up your repository. It lets you dive in visually and see what you've done. It's better than the command line tools.

    How has it helped my organization?

    This product has helped because we have been able to fix problems when our code repository breaks.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable feature is the ability to fix a broken repository merge. Some of the things that you now see in Bitbucket from Atlassian that are on the cloud-hosted version are now starting to creep into that market over the standalone desk version.

    The interface is pretty user-friendly.

    What needs improvement?

    For everyday use, I am more comfortable using the command line interface, rather than using SourceTree.

    The way our system works for software deployment, having to install this product is inconvenient.

    There is a cost for using this product, whereas the command line is at no charge.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using Atlassian SourceTree for approximately five years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    We have experienced no bugs or crashes that I know of.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Given that it is installed on individual machines, it would be easy enough to scale. I would say that about 40% of our development team uses it for fixing issues. Sometimes, even newer developers will use it.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    I have not had contact with technical support.

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    Prior to SourceTree, we would have used TortoiseHg or TortoiseSVN. That would have been when we used Subversion and Mercurial, but since there's no Tortoise version for Git, we used SourceTree.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is easy.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    There is a fee for using SourceTree.

    What other advice do I have?

    When people get into a jam, we tell them to use this product and try to see if they can solve it. That is if they weren't able to figure it out using the command-line tool.

    I guess that GitHub is trying to push into that too, where now they've now got a GitHub Command Line Interface, that's I think supposedly trying to mirror what the web version does on the command line, but still using Git on the backend. I wonder if that's something that SourceTree or Bitbucket might look at and say, how do they make a tool that works, still Git on the backend, but gives you a visualization in their GUI tool. But then, you use it possibly like GitHub's doing with their GitHub Command-Line, where you get some convenience operators. I guess the trick there is just going to be maintaining Git compatibility and not having to learn a totally different workflow.

    In summary, this is a product that works for the case where I need it, but it's not something that I use all of the time. I'm not sure what it would take for me to use it regularly, or how I might better integrate it.

    I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

    Helpful interface, simple installation, and free to use

    What is our primary use case?

    I installed Atlassian SourceTree on my Windows or Linux computer and I use it for check-in and check-out code, instead of going directly to the server and doing it that way. Atlassian SourceTree is a client-side application that interfaces with the Bitbucket server.

    What is most valuable?

    The interface is very good and is easy to use. It tells you when you've committed, when you've uploaded, and gives you the differences. You can download Atlassian SourceTree and use it as your client.

    What needs improvement?

    I have had a food experience with Atlassian SourceTree but it might not be for everyone.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using Atlassian SourceTree for approximately one year.

    What other advice do I have?

    There are other applications for the client-side that you can use to interface with Bitbucket.

    I rate Atlassian SourceTree a nine out of ten.
