    Your CEO tells you what dev tools to use? Man! Talk about micro management.
  • 16
    @TerriToniAX it makes sense to use a consistent set if tools across the company
  • 3
    @willol Yes, but is it the CEO who decides that? It's usually the job of some sort of dev manager, CIO or perhaps system architect.

    @TerriToniAX Assuming they have one

    @TerriToniAX being a tech startup the CEO or CTO, in this case me, does everything :p

    @rizasif92 OK, so in the dialog above, you're both the CEO and the designer? :P

    Except for cool command line, i agree with your CEO... maybe he should have said: you don't need to use command line

    @dontbeevil what is wrong about command line? It is the fastest and most robust.
  • 3
    @afrometal it's not fastest, and it's not the most robust ... tested on my previous company, I used only GUi and other developers CLIs. Anyway that's my personal preference, I;m not going to say what is better and what you should use

    @afrometal i can't agree that it's the fastest (especially for a stereotypical designer), but it's definitely the most powerful.

    @TerriToniAX of course not man. If I were the designer I would be already using git

    @dontbeevil yea I know but couldn't find a suitable GUI for designers. So I had to try and lure him.

    @afrometal @dontbeevil cmd is awesome with developers but when it comes to designers.. they actually fear it.

    So yea it wasn't my first choice but had to bring him on cmd.

    @rizasif92 just to clarify, I'm a developer and I personally prefer 1000 times GUI over CLI :)
  • 0
    @dontbeevil I did too, but trust me cmd is way better. I am sick of all the building and loading times on GUI. My productivity jumped x2 when I started using more and more cmd.

    @dontbeevil @rizasif92 downloaded github desktop. Installed it and then "The fuck is that. CLI looks easier to ke now"

    @chiragiem36 i use git with visual studio :)

  • 0
    @chiragiem36 told ya

    @chiragiem36 as I told you, I don't know about github desktop client and atom, but as I'm using VS is literally:
    - 2 click to commit https://visualstudio.com/en-us/...
    - 1 click to push https://visualstudio.com/en-us/...
    - 1 click to pull request https://visualstudio.com/en-us/...
    - 1/2 click to fetch/pull/merge https://visualstudio.com/en-us/...
    - has a built in a merge resolver https://visualstudio.com/en-us/...
    everything without change windows, remember/write command/branch names, resolve the conflicts some where else... this is "tested" in my previous company comparing speed and reliability with my colleagues that prefer CLI ... but anyway use whatever is more comfortable to you, just don't say what everyone must to use because is better (in your mind). (the last sentence is generic not referred to you)

    In atom, I do it without click. So I don't have to switch between keyboard and mouse
  • 0
    Besides I dont think IDE/editor plugins are completely GUI. They actually are command to run script that run git CLI commands.
  • 0
    @chiragiem36 as I told you it's up to you, your life ypur choice, we're different and there is nothing right or wrong :) of course it's a GUI but the code behind a click correspond a command

    There seems to be a startup that is making a git for designers

    @Raamakrishnan The problem with these kind of designer git is the support they provide. Usually they are restricted to images like png or jpg. Or mostly they want you to edit stuff in their editor.

    Now my designers love working with .psd or .ai files. Which are too hard to follow for git repos. So essentially everytime I push I am uploading a major deal of graphics.

    Plus I don't want my designer to learn new tools, like online editors. I just need to get things done :)
