Using FriendCode as a Web-Based Code Editor for Assembla
Using FriendCode to edit Assembla Git repositories online is really easy with their recent Assembla integration. You and your team members can simply work on a clone of your Assembla repository, test the code and then push back to Assembla.
1. Sign up for FriendCo.de
You can easily sign up at www.friendco.de/subscribe and log in with your Assembla account.
2. Import a Repository to Work On
Visit the repository settings page of your FriendCode account and select the 'Import' button for the repository you would like to import.
Note: If you already had a login to FriendCode and did not sign up via Assembla, you will have to connect your Assembla account on this page before you can import individual Assembla repositories.
After clicking 'Import', a modal will guide you through the import process. You can change the name, the description, and choose to import as a private repository. Note: You must not have any spaces in the name to successfully Fork.
3. Edit and Commit
FriendCode will now display the page of your newly imported repository, simply select the branch you want to work on (for exemple “master” or “dev”). You can also create new branches off other base branches.
FriendCode has now created a full workspace for you to edit that branch : you can open files, edit them, save changes, and commit your changes.
4. Push to Assembla
When you are ready to push to Assembla, open the left panel and select the deployment solution “Push upstream” which will push your new commits to the original repository on Assembla.
A logs tab will open to show you the result:
And you will see the commit in your Assembla repository:
