Odoo 15 Development Book - Chapter 1


Is a version control system for computer files that track changes. It is commonly used in software development for source code management. Git is a distributed version control system, meaning that every developer's computer has access to the entire codebase and history, making branching and merging simple. Designed to manage a wide range of jobs, from little to large, with speed and efficiency.

Git allows and encourages the creation of several local branches that are completely separate from one another. It takes seconds to create, merge, and delete those.

You can install any code from git. For that, first, install git using the below command

sudo apt-get install git

After installation, you can get the latest development version via Git itself:

git clone https://github.com/git/git 

Git is used to track changes in the source code. It enables collaboration between numerous developers. Its millions of parallel branches encourage non-linear evolution.
