BitKeeper is a distributed source management system.
BitKeeper is a fast, enterprise-ready, distributed SCM that scales up to very large projects and down to tiny ones.
This is free and open source software (it was originally proprietary software but moved over to an open source license in 2016).
- Simple: An easy to use command line interface.
- Scalable: Nested Repositories are submodules done right! Version control collections of repositories.
- Flexible: Hybrid mode for binary files that uses a cloud of server for binaries instead of bloating the source repositories.
- Accurate: Tracking of file operations like creates, deletes, and renames.
- Safe: All file accesses validate checksums for integrity. All file writes include redundancy for error correction.
- Dependable: Highly accurate auto-merge that uses the whole history to resolve conflicts. Most other systems use variations of diff3.
- Discernable: Source annotations instantly available.
- Fast: High performance and scales to very large repositories.
- Supports both the traditional SCCS commands for checking in/out files (“admin -i”, delta, get) as well as the RCS commands (ci, co).
- Cross-platform support – runs under Linux,AIX, FreeBSD, HP-UX, IRIX, Mac OS X, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris, and Windows.
