Ten Simple Rules for Taking Advantage of git and GitHub

BioRxiv : the Preprint Server for Biology
Yasset Perez-RiverolJuan Antonio Vizcaíno


A 'Ten Simple Rules' guide to git and GitHub. We describe and provide examples on how to use these software to track projects, as users, teams and organizations. We document collaborative development using branching and forking, interaction between collaborators using issues and continuous integration and automation using, for example, Travis CI and codecov. We also describe dissemination and social aspects of GitHub such as GitHub pages, following and watching repositories, and give advice on how to make code citable.
