Project plan
Final report


Our chair is developing CloudStudio, a web-based IDE which simplifies collaborative, distributed software development. A particular focus of CloudStudio is on simplifying the process of configuration management and revision control.
CloudStudio currently uses its own approach for performing revision control and has no support for today’s standards such as SVN or Git.
The goal of this project is to bring SVN and/or Git support to CloudStudio. This requires at the minimum that users can import existing code from a repository into a CloudStudio project as well as export a project to a repository. A more extensive project could investigate how the continuously integrate CouldStudio’s version control system with SVN or Git.
