Source Control, Revision Control, CVS, Subversion - for S-Controls & Apex Code

Developer Tools

With the ever-expanding capabilities of to host and run both server-side and client-side code, there is a great need for an integrated source control/revision control/code repository system in The Eclipse plugin for developers is fantastic, but the lack of any kind of serious source control integrated into is a great limitation for organizations who want to be able to have teams of developers working on applications. We need the capability to track changes to source code, check source code files in and out, and revert to previous versions of S-controls and Apex code. Without this feature, developers are forced to make manual backups and copies of their source code, which is both time consuming and error-prone. If could create a partnership with Subversion or some other well-respected code repository system, and integrate the system into, it would be a big help in attracting large development organizations to build enterprise applications for the platform.

    While we are not providing a VCS capability out of the box, we are building features that will make it easier for you to integrate with a version control system.  Metadata API has always allowed you to download the files from your org and commit them to a VCS. 

    With SFDX we have added a change tracking system within the Scratch Org and command that help you sync changes to the Scratch Org from the File System and vice versa.  

    These capabilities are not currently available with Sandboxes.
