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.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of being reserved to the largest, most complex application stacks.

The speed of product development has increased massively in the past 10 years. At the same time our formal secure development and SDL methodologies have fallen behind. This forces product developers to choose between rapid release times and security. In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Murray, Director of Cyber Security Consulting and Assessment at GE Healthcare, examined the problems and presented some solutions for moving security into the DevOps lifecycle to ensure that we get fast AND secure.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, will discuss why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rather than mimicking legacy server virtualization workflows and architectures.

BlueBox bridge the chasm between development and infrastructure. Hosting providers are taking standardization and automation too far. For many app developers it does nothing but spawn mayhem and more work. They have to figure out how their creations live on a pre-fab infrastructure solution full of constraints. Operations-as-a-Service is what BlueBox does. BlueBox utilizes development tools such as OpenStack, EMC Razor, Opscode’s Chef and BlueBox's proprietary tools give the power to do the unorthodox things which most hosting providers shun.
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

What’s inside the cloud? Hard work. Cloud operators know the world inside the datacenter is gritty. Vendor marketing speak and cloudwashing quickly melt in the heat of SLAs, uptime guarantees, and users who want it now. In his session at DevOps Summit, Hernan Alvarez, Chief Product Officer at Blue Box Group, will deliver an unvarnished look inside the world of cloud operators, from the perspective of someone who lives it. Attendees get a front-row look into the toolkits and processes that enable cloud operators to stand up and manage private clouds end to end. Bring your questions and learn h...
Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It’s easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) – you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money. In his session at DevOps Summit, Otis Gospodnetić, co-author of Lucene in Action and founder of Sematext, will share the architecture and decisions behind Sematext’s services for handling larg...

The Bluemix Developer Playground, for developers of all levels, highlighted the ease of use of...
We are all here because we are sold on the transformative promise of The Cloud. But what good is all of this ephemeral, on-demand infrastructure if your usage doesn't actually improve the agility and speed of your business? How must Operations adapt in order to avoid stifling your Cloud initiative? In his session at DevOps Summit, Damon Edwards, co-founder and managing partner of the DTO Solutions, will highlight the successful organizational, process, and tooling patterns of high-performing companies that have reshaped their Operations to enable the business to get full value from their Clo...
Physical, virtual, containers. Private cloud, public cloud, hybrid cloud. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS. Windows, Linux, Mac. These are just some of the choices faced when architecting a datacenter of today. And the choice is not one or the other; instead, it is often a combination of many of these. HashiCorp builds software to ease these decisions by presenting solutions that bridge the gaps. HashiCorp's tools manage both physical machines and virtual machines, Windows, and Linux, SaaS and IaaS, etc. The company is committed to supporting next-generation technologies, as well.
