Perforce veröffentlicht Quellcode von zwei seiner beliebten Tools zur Versionskontrolle

Open-Source-Initiative erleichtert Anwendern die Anpassung ihrer Tools und Workflows an individuelle Anforderungen

Highlights:

  • Perforce stellt Open-Source-Versionen seiner zentralen kommandozeilenbasierten Schnittstelle „P4CLI" und seines webbasierten Clients „P4Web" über Perforce Workshop zur Verfügung
  • Bekanntes Animationsstudio arbeitet mit Perforce zusammen, um auf Open-Source-Basis Software zu entwickeln, die für seine Managementpipeline großer Dateien entscheidend ist

Wokingham, UK, 05. Juni 2014 - Perforce Software bietet zwei seiner Tools zur Versionskontrolle ab sofort als Open-Source-Versionen an: „P4CLI", die zentrale kommandozeilenbasierte Schnittstelle für die leistungsstarke Versionierungs-Engine „P4D", und den populären webbasierten Versionierungs-Client „P4Web". Der kürzlich veröffentlichte Quellcode ermöglicht es Entwicklern, diese Clients noch stärker an ihre individuellen Bedürfnisse sowie an die sich kontinuierlich weiterentwickelnden Umgebungen anzupassen. Alle Open-Source-Projekte sind ab sofort auf „Perforce Workshop" verfügbar, einer von Perforce initiierten und gehosteten Open-Source-Community.

P4CLI ist die zentrale kommandozeilenbasierte Schnittstelle für die Perforce-Versionierungs-Engine „P4D". Die Lösung ist unter Entwicklern und DevOps weit verbreitet, um grundlegende Versionierungsfunktionalitäten zu nutzen und benutzerdefinierte Tools, Plugins und Automatisierungen für ihre Umgebungen zu erstellen. P4Web, ein beliebter Web-Client für P4D, erlaubt es Entwicklern, routinemäßige Versionierungsoperationen über Webbrowser auszuführen. Die Lösung bietet damit einen flexiblen und bequemen Zugang zu allen einer Versionierung unterliegenden Dateien eines Unternehmens und spielt dadurch eine wichtige Rolle in den täglichen Arbeitsabläufen.

Durch die Veröffentlichung von P4CLI und P4Web als quelloffene Lösungen ermöglicht Perforce seinen Kunden noch mehr Kontrolle über ihre Entwicklungsprozesse. Ein erweiterter Zugang zum Quellcode unterstützt die Optimierung der Entwicklungspipeline, da Entwicklerteams benötigte Tools zügig erstellen und Clients besser an eine Vielzahl von Hardwarevarianten und Plattformen anpassen können.

Die Entscheidung, zwei der beliebtesten Tools Open Source zu stellen, ist nicht der erste Schritt des Unternehmens in diese Richtung. Weitere Clients wie P4Pearl, P4Ant und P4Win sind bereits quelloffen verfügbar.

„Open Source ist bereits seit Gründung von Perforce ein fester Bestandteil der Unternehmenskultur", betont Christopher Seiwald, Gründer und CEO von Perforce. „Wir haben unser gesamtes Software-Portfolio schon von Anfang an kostenlos für Open Source-Projekte zur Verfügung gestellt. Wir freuen uns darauf, diese Unterstützung auch in Zukunft mit neuen Open-Source-Releases weiterzuführen."

Perforce Workshop wurde mit P4D und Swarm, dem Perforce-Tool zur Codeprüfung und Kollaboration, entwickelt. Aus diesem Grund ist es besonders interessant für Projekte mit großen Dateien oder solche, die erwartungsgemäß auf ein Gesamtvolumen im Gigabyte-Bereich anwachsen werden.

Zudem greifen immer wieder Drittunternehmen bei ihren Open-Source-Projekten auf den Perforce Workshop zurück. So hat sich etwa ein bekanntes Animationsstudio vor kurzem für Workshop entschieden, um dort die quelloffene Entwicklung wichtiger Komponenten seiner Animations-Pipeline zu verwalten.

Open-Source-Maßnahmen nehmen weiterhin branchenweit zu. Perforce lädt daher Entwickler ein, an Perforce Workshop teilzunehmen und zu Projekten wie dem des Animationsstudios sowie zahlreichen weiteren beizutragen. Weitere Informationen zu anstehenden Community-Events sowie die Anmeldung zu Workshop können unter swarm.workshop.perforce.com abgerufen werden.

When you set off to build an app that will change the world, designing your system architecture to be reliable and scalable is important but the stark reality is that, for your MVP, you probably had a “need for speed” (of development). You didn’t know what all the axes were to scale your application, where your stress points would be, and what weird and wonderful ways your customers would use it down the road. In a world of zero-downtime services, landing the plane to figure it out is not an option. In his session at DevOps Summit, Andrew Miklas, CTO of PagerDuty, will share lessons learned ...

Software development, like manufacturing, is a craft that requires the application of creative approaches to solve problems given a wide range of constraints. However, while engineering design may be craftwork, the production of most designed objects relies on a standardized and automated manufacturing process. By contrast, much of moving an application from prototype to production and, indeed, maintaining the application through its lifecycle has often remained craftwork. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will di...
High performing enterprise Software Quality Assurance (SQA) teams validate systems are ready for use – getting most actively involved as components integrate and form complete systems. These teams catch and report on defects, making sure the customer gets the best software possible. SQA teams have leveraged automation and virtualization to execute more thorough testing in less time – bringing Dev and Ops together, ensuring production readiness. Does the emergence of DevOps mean the end of Enterprise SQA? Does the SQA function become redundant?

The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies. This model makes use of Composable Enterprise framework put forward by Jonathan Murray of WMG.

I just recently wrote a blog about BOTs causing unwanted traffic on our servers. Right after I wrote this blog I was notified about yet another “interesting” and unusual load behavior on our download page which is used by customers to download latest product versions and updates. If you see such a load behavior you typically assume that you just released a new product version or maybe an update to our agents and many people are downloading it like crazy. Unfortunately that was not the case. The spike in traffic was caused by an implementation issue between our authentication service and our d...

Today, almost every company has a directory that needs to be managed.
