SAS Enterprise Guide 7.1 Git integration

Hello, 

 

I see that there is some kind of Git integration in SAS EG 7.1. There is Git installed on my machine and I can commit changes and then view the history of the local SAS repo. Is there a way to push and fitch from SAS EG or should I use Git ?

There is some git integration, but as of now, it's basic features. [source]

 

If the directory in which you are working is a git repository, you can commit and view the history:

I'm pretty sure when I originally played with it, it will setup a repository if there isn't one and you go to commit. You may want to test yourself.

 

I have heard (see this discussion, e.g.) that there are some exciting improvements on the way as far as a more complete integration in both SAS Studio and EG, allowing pushing and more features of git. But for now, I'd recommend using an external commandline or GUI tool for your version control workflow.

Here is a paper that covers the current Git integration in EG:

And yes, as @paulkaefer mentioned, we are working on designs for more complete Git integration in Studio and EG in future releases.
